Euroson 2014, Tel Aviv: Strong performance reported by SuperSonic Imagine in Israel

At EUROSON Congress held in Tel Aviv, Israel from 26-28 May, SuperSonic Imagine, a company specializing in ultrasound medical imaging, is proud to announce the strong performance of its Aixplorer® ultrasound system in the Israeli medical imaging market. SuperSonic Imagine has been marketing Aixplorer, the new generation ultrasound platform, in Israel since 2011 via its exclusive distributor, Inframed Ldt (, based in Lod. There are approximately twenty Aixplorer systems currently installed in various medical centers such as the Laniado Hospital in Netanya, the Ichilov Medical Center, the
Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, the Edith Wolfson Medical Center and the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv, the Hala Breast Clinic and the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, and the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashekelon.
The Assuta Hospital in Tel Aviv has also recently ordered three Aixplorer ultrasound
systems, in addition to the two already in use in the hospital’s radiology ward.
As Pascal Dardelin, sales manager for the Middle-East, explains, “Aixplorer has been
extremely successful among the Israeli scientific community owing to its cutting edge
innovation, clinical benefits and ease of use. In the search for clinical reliability, Israeli
doctors are always open to new technological innovations.”
Aixplorer is the only ultrasound system that uses real-time ShearWaveTM Elastography
(SWETM) and UltraFastTM Doppler. It is a new generation system that provides exceptional imaging quality thus helping physicians to better characterize lesions through the visualization and non-invasive measurement of tissue stiffness.
SuperSonic Imagine is attending EUROSON 2014 and will hold a symposium on “The
Benefits UltraFast™ Imaging Brings to Ultrasound” on May 28th at 1pm.
