Hitachi aloka is a Japanese high quality sonography and ultrasound machine.

The F31 features advanced imaging functions such as  Broadband Harmonics (BbH), Adaptive Image Processing (AIP*), and Spatial Compound Imaging (SCI*). Anatomy can be displayed with outstanding sensitivity and resolution to reach a high level of imaging excellence.

The Free Angular M-mode (FAM*) can be implemented in real-time or reconstructed from the cine memory. Orientation at arbitrary angles allows for variation position, whereas blood flow mapping with eFLOW allows demonstration of vascularity with high spatial resolution and minimal blooming.

With the Extended Field of View (EFV*) function, large structures or pathologies can be viewed on a single screen, whether the body contour is linear or curved.

High Frame Rate Zoom enables enlargement of a region of interest while maintaining a high frame rate. The Dynamic Slow-motion Display (DSD) offers detailed observation of fast moving structures such as the heart valves  demonstrated with the real-time image alongside a slow motion counterpart.

In addition, the real-time, simultaneous side-by-side display of the B-mode and Flow image enable easy anatomical understanding in vascular examinations such as the carotid artery or lower extremities (Dual Dynamic Display – DDD).
