ARIETTA Prologue

Mobility at your Fingertips

ARIETTA Prologue has been designed especially for the point-of-care (POC) ultrasound market. Thanks to its intuitive and simple operation, it fulfils the fundamental role of a portable ultrasound system, bringing the clinical benefits of diagnostic ultrasound into new areas of healthcare.

The design and usability of the ARIETTA Prologue has been comprehensively evaluated to deliver high performance as a cutting-edge, mobile ultrasound system fitting a wide array of user and operating requirements.

ARIETTA Prologue supports a broad range of examinations and, with its compact hand-carry design, can be used in a variety of different settings. Operators will not need to compromise their natural posture even in the smallest examination or treatment room. Its use can be extended by combining it with the cart or the probe tray.

The ARIETTA Prologue offers superior imaging quality and is equipped with functions that improve efficiency and support rapid, accurate diagnosis when and where needed.

ARIETTA Prologue is a compact and portable diagnostic ultrasound system, with functions that can improve efficiency and support rapid, accurate diagnosis for point-of-care applications.

Compact Design and High Mobility
  • An essential attribute is its compact design offering great functionality: rapid boot time, in-built battery for portability, all providing you with fast access to diagnostic quality imaging wherever you need it.

Full Smart Operation
  • The monitor incorporates a full touch panel offering intuitive operation with no complicated setting up. An optimal preset can be selected simply by indicating the icon for the appropriate body part, body size and organ for study. Or select a previously acquired image and the system will adjust to the same exam settings, invaluable support for follow-up studies.
  • Basic operations such as image size or gain adjustment can be made with one hand using touch screen gestures. Automatic image optimization is also available.
  • Full screen mode can be used to enlarge the image display, enabling detailed observation.

High Quality Imaging & Advanced Functions
    Using the same advanced image processing technologies normally reserved for high-end systems, the ARIETTA Prologue offers image clarity and a wide field of view:
  • Silky Image Processing (SIP) is an adaptive tissue filter that boosts edge enhancement and contrast resolution providing clean tissue borders and detailed parenchyma.
  • Spatial Compounding is achieved by transmission of beams in multiple directions to reduce artefacts. Tissue boundaries can be visualized clearly.
  • Trapezoid mode can be used with the linear transducer extending the width of the field of view.
  • eFLOW is a colour flow mapping that offers clear delineation of the blood flow and increased sensitivity for detection of microvasculature
  • Needle Emphasis technology enhances the visualization of the needle, offering increased safety and accuracy for biopsy and other interventional procedures.
  • Auto IMT traces the vessel intima measuring its mean thickness which can be used to assess the patient's cardiovascular disease risk.

Transducers
  • In different settings, for a wide range of applications; with its diversity of transducers the ARIETTA Prologue can be used for an extensive range of procedures.
Musculoskeletal & Rheumatology
Dynamic ultrasound is the ideal imaging method for non-invasive assessment of the kinetic function of ligaments, muscles, tendons, etc. Additionally, ultrasound examination of joints can play an important role in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and monitoring of the patient’s response to therapy.

Hitachi puts the punch in portability
 
  • Performance
    With the excellent superficial imaging performance of the 18MHz high frequency  transducer compatible with the ARIETTA Prologue, you can visualize details such as avulsion fracture of the bone surface, or ligament/tendon fracture, diagnoses which are often missed by X-ray examinations. Observation of synovial proliferation of the digital joints in the early stage of rheumatism is also possible.
  • Operability
    Basic operations such as image size or gain adjustment can be made intuitively with one hand using touch screen gestures. Optimized settings for examination of any body part can be selected.
  • Compact & Mobile
    The ARIETTA Prologue’s compact design offers excellent portability, supporting examinations on the sports field or during home visits equally as well as those performed in the routine clinic. With its in-built battery, it allows fast and accurate examinations wherever you need it.

Abdomen
Indications for abdominal ultrasound examinations can cover many different organs such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidney, spleen, gastrointestinal canal, etc. Strong performance for detailed visualization from superficial to deep with a wide field of view is required.
  • Performance
    The ARIETTA Prologue uses the same advanced image processing technologies normally reserved for high-end systems. You can observe parenchymal organs such as the liver and pancreas with superior clarity; eFLOW, a high resolution colour mode, can be used for delineation of small renal vessels.
  • Operability
    Intuitive, one-handed adjustment of basic parameters such as image size can be made using touch screen gestures, when observing organs of different sizes such as the liver, pancreas, etc. Optimized settings for examination of any body part can be selected.
  • Compact & Mobile
    The compact design of the ARIETTA Prologue is designed for use wherever and whenever it is needed, in examination or treatment rooms.

Anesthesiology and Pain Management
Ultrasound guidance is commonly used for the delivery of nerve blocks, providing visualization in real-time of the nerve or group of nerves, the correct needle placement, the surrounding tissues, and the spread of the local anaesthesia to the right location, offering potential maximum patient benefit.
  • Performance
    The ARIETTA Prologue uses the same advanced image processing technologies normally reserved for high-end systems and together with the excellent superficial imaging performance of the 18MHz high frequency  transducer, enables observation of nerves, vessels, and muscle tissues with clarity. Additionally, Needle Emphasis, a technology to enhance the visualization of the needle, can increase the safety and accuracy of its placement.
  • Operability
    Basic operations such as image size and gain adjustment can be made intuitively with one-handed touch screen gestures. Simple intuitive use can provide support for less experienced users.
  • Compact & Mobile
    The compact design of the ARIETTA Prologue is designed for use wherever and whenever it is needed, in examination or treatment rooms.
