SIUI - Shantou Institute of Ultrasound Instruments is one of the largest manufacturers of ultrasound machines in China with a 30 year heritage since they developed their first ultrasound system and they are the longest established ultrasound manufacturer in China. In terms of scientific research and development, SIUI is has advanced R&D and software development facilities and exercises full control of their core technologies including the manufacturing of their own transducers and PCB’s. SIUI’s state-of-the-art technologies, cutting-edge equipment, fine craftsmanship, quality products and good service have earned SIUI an ever growing reputation in the industry worldwide and they compete strongly with major world brands but without the hefty price tag. A massive new multi million dollar production facility in Shantou necessitated by ever increasing demand is now nearing the final stages of completion.
Current SIUI portable models that Ultramedix supplies are:
CTS 8800 Plus,
Apogee 1200 Touch and
Apogee 1200 Omni.
SIUI’s ever popular highly B/W portable CTS -900 is now replaced by the CTS-900Neo with an improved dynamic range, higher image quality and higher probe operating frequencies. Pricing is as competitive as ever and enhances its appeal.
The new CTS-7700 Plus is a class leading high performance entry level B/W ultrasound model with 12” LCD. Comprehensive clinical performance includes smart one-key image optimization, speckle reduction technology and PW Doppler. Options include compound imaging, a built in Li-ion battery, color flow Doppler upgradeability, SonoAir image transmission to iPads and iPhones and DICOM 3.0 connectivity.
The new CTS-8800 Plus is a best selling class leading entry level portable with high quality 3D/4D imaging and all the features of the CTS-7700 Plus and a larger 15” LCD. The CTS-8800 appeals to a wider sector of the market to whom 3D/4D was until now not cost justifiable.
For users seeking a sensitive portable color Doppler system with optional 3D/4D capabilities the popular Apogee 1100 is retained in Ultramedix’s lineup. The Apogee 1100 is a compact design high performance real-time triplex colour Doppler portable with advanced features found in high end cart based models and includes optional Elastrography for breast cancer exams.
The Apogee 1200 Touch portable is next. Built on SIUI’s most advanced hardware platform it has a 15” medical LCD monitor it is a true mid to premium end model for general and women’s imaging with multi-beam forming technology and speckle reduction and compound imaging technology supported by an expansive range of probes including phased array, compact 4D vaginal volumetric probe broadband linear arrays, convex and microconvex probes for most applications. Many of the probes can now be selected with a choice of high density or super high density versions. Standard inclusions are SRT Imaging, Trapezoidal Imaging, Extended Imaging, Panoramic Imaging, Compound Imaging, Anatomical M-mode and Auto IMT measurement with optional Continuous Wave Doppler (CW), Elastography, SonoAir image transmission to iPads and iPhones and DICOM 3.0 connectivity.
The sister model Apogee 1200 Omni portable offers comprehensive multi-capability ultrasound applications with multi-beam forming technology and spatial and frequency spectrum compound imaging. Designed for both cardiolology and general imaging and with a choice of high density or super high density probes the Apogee 1200 Omni has a range of wide band phased array probes, a 4D volumetric probe, and various convex, microconvex and linear array probes. It also includes Auto IMT measurement and an advanced cardiology package with M, Color-M, CW, TDI, HPRF, anatomical M-mode, stress Echo and ECG Module.
Upgraded versions of SIUI’s cart based models now include improved imaging, increased channels & probe crystals, multi-beam forming processing, enhanced Color Doppler/grayscale and improved 4D frame rate etc.
Current SIUI cart based models that Ultramedix supplies are:
Apogee 3500 Touch,
Apogee 3500 Omni,
Apogee 3800 Touch and
Apogee 3800 Omni
The Apogee 3500 Touch is for the general imaging and women’s imaging markets and includes a CD/DVC burner and new larger 19” LCD while the Apogee 3500 Omni is for both the cardiology imaging and general imaging markets and to satellite practices.
At the top end of SIUI’s range the Apogee 3800 Touch is built on SIUI’s most advanced hardware platform and is a true mid to premium end shared services model for women’s and general imaging with multi-beam forming technology and speckle reduction and compound imaging technology supported by an expansive range of probes and a choice of high density or super high density probes. Standard inclusions are SRT Imaging, Trapezoidal Imaging, Extended Imaging, Panoramic Imaging, Compound Imaging, Anatomical M-mode and Auto IMT measurement with optional Continuous Wave Doppler (CW), Elastography, SonoAir image transmission to iPads and iPhones and DICOM 3.0 connectivity. This model includes a built in CD/DVD burner, touch screen control, a multi directional revolving LCD and an elevating and revolving operator’s console.
The Apogee 3800 Omni is the sister model to the Apogee 3800 Touch sharing the same mechanical features but tailored for the cardiology imaging and general imaging markets. The Apogee 3800 Omni has an upgraded new platform and is the flagship of the range with comprehensive, speckle reduction and spatial and frequency spectrum compound imaging technology. It is an all-in-one clinical solution and it’s advanced cardiology package with M, Color-M, CW, TDI, HPRF, anatomical M-mode, stress Echo and ECG Module.
Many of the SIUI ultrasound models are matched by veterinary versions with ranges of probes and software specifically for veterinary use for small and large animals.
The SIUI veterinary ultrasound models that Ultramedix supplies includes:
Apogee 1200V standard
Apogee 1200V Neo cardiology
The CTS-800 is a highly affordable new palm sized veterinary ultrasound model with a 7” LCD monitor for livestock pregnancy detection. This model has one of the largest LCD’s in its class and in addition to its range of linear rectal probes, convex and microconvex probes now also has special backfat probes for sheep and cows.
