Hitachi Healthcare pioneered ultrasound for use by cardiologists and we continue to lead the way with the new 2D and 3D premium ultrasound system, the LISENDO 880.
Recognized for our outstanding image quality & Doppler performance, outstanding system reliability and advanced transducer technology, Hitachi Healthcare remains the standard in the field of ultrasound. Hitachi Healthcare’s commitment and dedication to cardiology allows us to offer a wide range of consoles and specifically designed transducers to meet the needs of every cardiologist.
The LISENDO 880 is redefining the vision for cardiovascular ultrasound.
[Attaining the next level of image quality]
A wide range of essential image adjustment parameters dedicated to optimizing cardiac image quality; a variety of technologies to reduce confounding factors that inhibit signal fidelity such as patient dependent variability; transducers, image processing algorithms, monitor display: Hitachi has further refined technologies at every level for LISENDO 880. PURE SYMPHONIC ARCHITECTURE providing premium level image clarity for cardiac diagnosis.
The phased array transducer has been newly designed to realize the high spatial, temporal and contrast resolution especially required for cardiology. With an improved shape that is comfortable to hold and fits easily in intercostal spaces, it can reduce variable factors such as user skill- and patient disease-dependencies that can inhibit image clarity.
The newly developed transmission/reception technology for LISENDO 880 realizes significant S/N improvement and reduces focal dependency whilst providing excellent penetration at higher frequencies. eFocusing offers a real-time display not modified by image processing, selected by a one-touch operation.
Hitachi’s unique image processing technologies evolved from former models are further refined for LISENDO 880. Combined with the newly developed transducers and eFocusing technology, they deliver imaging with outstanding definition which can be optimized for each user’s preference.
[Attaining the next level in operability]
LISENDO 880 is equipped with a sophisticated automatic cardiac function measurement package. The resultant ease-of-use and exam consistency significantly improve throughput, streamlining workflow. Rapid, accurate examinations in a comfortable environment are realized for both operators and patients.
Using learning data structured by Hitachi’s big data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, high precision in automated diagnosis can be attained. LISENDO 880 includes several automated measurements of complex cardiac functions, to which measurement accuracy has been improved with the addition of a vast knowledge-based data bank. Automation of measurements has been realized for all views from the apex, leading to significant workflow improvements.
When this function is selected, ED and ES frames are automatically detected and displayed instantly. The combination of automated ED-ES detection and automatic measurement packages offers seamless workflow.
Intuitive Operating Console
The freeze button is located close to the trackball thereby bringing basic console operations together. Additionally, the core 5-switch arrangement around the trackball streamlines the workflow for intuitive performance of more advanced functions such as Cardiac 3D and cardiac function analysis.
Attaining the next level of diagnostic confidence]
Blood pumped from the heart is circulated throughout the body by the blood vessels. Various applications provided by LISENDO 880 evaluate and display different functional changes of the vessels and blood flow with time, giving a more detailed understanding of the morphology, kinetics, and physiology of the vasculature throughout the body.
Cardiac 3D is becoming an indispensable part of the cardiac examination. Diagnostic information is attained at the next level for diagnosis and treatment in cardiac disease. Quality unique to ‘made-in-Japan’ products is achieved in all aspects of image quality, operability, and functionality.
Analysis of Cardiac 3D
The acquired 3D data can be used for different analysis packages, including valve diameter measurement, 3D morphological observation, volume calculation, and tracking.
※ Analysis is performed using ASTRELLA CV – Linq.
With a globally aging population, the diagnosis and management of heart failure has become very important. Ultrasound examination of patients with heart failure and arrhythmia must be provided with the utmost efficiency and accuracy. Several advanced applications offered by LISENDO 880 are combined providing an integrated diagnostic package for the diagnosis of heart failure which is accurate and easy to use.
GLS (Global Longitudinal Strain)
Recent interest has been shown in the GLS, the ratio of change in LV endocardium length, which can be altered significantly in patients with heart failure even when a normal Ejection Fraction (EF) is maintained. The enhanced workflow for both the tracing and GLS calculation has significantly reduced the measurement and analysis time, bringing its use into routine examinations.
VFM can display the resultant hemodynamic effects within the LV during systole of defects captured by GLS. The Energy Loss display maps the energy dissipated by flow disturbance providing possible early detection of heart failure from information obtained within the heart chamber.
In patients with an irregular heartbeat, for example, in atrial fibrillation or arrhythmia related to heart failure, measurements should be made during a period of stable heart rate. Challenges such as patient dependent variability, poor accuracy, lengthy processes have created obstacles in the past. R-R Navigation automatically detects heartbeats appropriate for measurement, selecting a heartbeat where the R-R interval is the same as in the previous 2 waveforms.
※ Additionally, in combination with Dual Gate Doppler, it can detect an appropriate heartbeat for measurement of diastolic performance.
Automatically detects the Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) following the placement of an ROI on the long axis view of the carotid artery, measuring max and mean IMT according to diagnostic guidelines. By calculating the maximum, minimum, mean, and Standard Deviation (SD) from all points in the ROI, Auto IMT is expected to improve quantification accuracy.
