    Escalon Medical Corp. introduced its new tablet-based ultrasound imaging system, the Sonomed Escalon VuPad, at the Academy’s 2013 Annual Meeting in New Orleans earlier this month.  

    The product offers A-scan, B-scan and ultrasound biomicrosopy modalities in a sleek, tablet-like package, according to Escalon. The company says the system features portable ergonomic design; an elegant user interface; wireless interconnectivity to electronic medical records, image management systems and printers; a multi-touch ultra high resolution touch screen with pinch zoom functionality; and outstanding image quality and measurement accuracy.

    Escalon anticipates shipping VuPad systems as early as the end of this year following clearance from the FDA and other regulatory bodies.
