Echocardiography, also called sonography, is known as the examination of the heart using ultrasound as imaging process. Echocardiography has become, next to the ECG (electrocardiogram), one of the most important non-invasive methods for cardiac examination and an indispensable part of any cardiological diagnosis.
Echocardiography is also a valuable part of the diagnosis process for the general internist and the intensive care professional.
Cardiography tables for different types of examinations
Our cardiography tables are available as 'echocardiography' tables. They feature a cut-out in the main section for the ultrasonic cardiac examination.
You can choose between fixed height (650/700/750/800 mm) and manual, hydraulic or electric height adjustment. All adjustment mechanisms are maintenance-free.
An essential advantage of ultrasound over the commonly used X-ray is the safety of the sound waves used. The tests run largely pain-free and even sensitive tissues, such as those of unborn children, are not damaged.
Sonography tables are available with a fixed height and with a two or three-piece tabletop. They have no cutout, unlike the echocardiography tables.
The three-piece sonography table (SO-ZK 1065/EE) is particularly suitable for thyroid sonography due to the head-down position adjustment.
The sono-echocardiography tables are a combination of the two previously described variants. They have a three-piece tabletop and are equipped with a cutout in the main section.
Special orders and custom-made products
For all cardiograpy tables, a special order or custom-made product is possible. Depending on the model, the cutout size or tabletop dimensions can be modified. The addition of a second headrest at the foot end is possible, as is a second echo cut-out which can be placed diagonally.
Usually the upholstery inserts for the echo-cutouts are removable. In many models, a folding mechanism is also available. The tilt tables (page 46 in the product catalogue) can be fitted with an echo cut-out.
Please contact us with your specific requirements and we will be glad to inform you of the applicable prices.
