 Ultrasound Test Device
Sonora Medical Systems (Longmont, Colo) announces the newest addition to its line of ultrasound test devices—the MagicNickel. Introduced at the recent Radiological Society of North America meeting in Chicago, the MagicNickel is a handheld, battery-operated tool designed to test the operation of both the ultrasound probe and the ultrasound system. The product is vendor neutral, meaning it can test any electronic-array transducer and ultrasound system combination. Sonora, a supplier of aftermarket products, services, and test equipment to the medical-imaging market, created the MagicNickel in response to its customers’ request for a device small enough that it could be carried in a pocket, yet powerful enough to rigorously test the viability of the ultrasound probe and system.

 Three Instruments in One
Netech (Hicksville, NY) combines the complete testing functions of a defibrillator tester, an external pacemaker analyzer, and a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) arrhythmia simulator into the Delta 3000, a compact, lightweight, and easy-to-use instrument.

The Delta 3000 tests all automatic, semi-automatic, and biphasic defibrillators, as well as all external pacemakers—including transcutaneous and transvenous devices. It also performance-tests all ECG equipment. The rugged instrument features a large, easy-to-read display, a simultaneous display of all test measurements, a dedicated print key for immediate documentation, and a RS 232 Palm Pilot and printer interface. Built-in user-selectable test loads eliminate the need to carry optional pacemaker modules.
