Hitachi ARIETTA 850

Hitachi introduced the world’s first practical implementation of the CMUT (Capacitive Micro-machined Ultrasound Transducer) silicon wafer technology
in 2009. ALOKA ARIETTA 850 exploits the next-generation of CMUT technology, and, combined with eFocusing, a dynamic transmission and reception technology, achieves outstanding clarity of imaging from near to far field. Additionally, this platform contributes to remarkable patient comfort and enhanced treatment efficiency through an ergonomic design of the monitor arm, functions to improve workflow, and advanced applications including support for liver cancer treatment.
