Hitachi Arietta 850

The Next Evolution in Ultrasound, designed for high expectations

ARIETTA 850 ultrasound platform responds to high expectations to answer the ever increasing demands of medical professionals. It's fundamental performance has been refined with the goal of creating an ultimate ultrasound platform, based on its newly-developed, Pure Symphonic Architecture.


Advanced Applications

Ultrasound continues to expand its utility as technological advances create new cost-effective uses for the modality.


Combinational Elastography
Ultrasound Elastography has been shown to be an accurate non-invasive method of assessing the progression of liver disease by depicting the level of fibrotic change. In the 850, Hitachi has combined the two methods of Elastography (strain and shearwave) into a single liver Elastography exam. This fast examination is able to produce the quantitative data provided by Shearwave Elastography while also exploiting Strain Elastography’s unique advantages in patients with inflammation, fatty replacement, and ascites. The combination provides a comprehensive picture of liver health including indices that reflect

  • Overall Fibrotic Progression
  • Extent of fatty replacement
  • Presence of Inflammation

The onboard, full-featured technologist console provides immediate image previews, dose tracking and exposure and deviation index features, in addition to a host of image manipulation and workflow tools. A double-click magnification feature gives technologists the ability to zoom full screen and toggle edge enhancement to better view PICC lines and detect patient movement. Count on fast, reliable wireless worklist updates and transmission to PACS.

Multi-modality Image Fusion with Real-time Virtual Sonography (RVS)
Hitachi continues to expand its RVS fusion capabilities with a new suite of visualization and efficiency tools to enhance its ability support a variety of interventional procedures.

  • 3D Sim-Navigator - Provides simulation of single or multiple needle paths during navigation to a target. The positional relationship between the marked target and needle paths can be assessed in real time using the 3D body mark reconstructed from the virtual CT volume data and an additional C-plane display that is orthogonal to the needle path.
  • E-Field Simulator - designed to streamline RFA procedures, E-field Simulator superimposes a color map onto the CT image that simulates the estimated distribution of the electric field (E-field) based on the position of multiple electrodes during RFA treatment. The simulation provides instant visual feedback to understand the potential effects of needle positioning.
  • Body Motion Tracking - Working in concert with the omniTRAXTM Active Patient Tracker from CIVCOTM, this feature enables instant registration between the live ultrasound image and previously acquired volumes. It also corrects in real-time for patient motion during scanning.
  • Needle Tracking - Using data from the RVS sensor and the VirtuTRAXTM biopsy bracket from CIVCO allows real-time tracking of needle placement, automatically correcting for needle flexion.

Contrast Harmonic Imaging
With multiple acquisition modes and analytical tools like Inflow Time Mapping, which displays a color-coded graphical representation of enhancement and wash-out times, the 850 positions users to increase utilization of a technique that has been adopted throughout the rest of the world.

The ARIETTA 850 was designed to address the ever-increasing clinical and operational demands of today’s Radiology suite. It pairs advanced hardware with new and innovative image acquisition techniques to deliver crisp, high-resolution imaging. Efficiency solutions like Protocol Assistant and a new annotation package enable it to be tailored to each individual user’s workflow needs. Finally, ARIETTA 850 expands the overall utility of ultrasound as a modality through optional image fusion, Elastography, and CMUT probe capabilities.

ARIETTA 850 produces images of exceptional clarity by carefully shaping its sonographic pulses and then precisely managing the resulting echo data throughout the entire signal-processing chain: from probe to final image display. This process, Pure Symphonic Imaging, ensures that odiv the purest data is used to fuel the advanced imaging capabilities of the 850.

Pure Symphonic Architecture
  • 4G CMUT Probe - While ultrasound technology has evolved drastically over the last halfcentury, probe technology has seen little change as researchers sought transducers that could improve on the performance of piezoelectric material. ARIETTA 850 makes this technological leap, supporting the world’s first fully-featured Capacitive Micro-machined Ultrasound Transducer. The SML44 probe contains thousands of high-sensitivity, wide-bandwidth CMUT cells that are printed onto a silicon substrate using techniques first developed in the semiconductor industry. The resulting operating bandwidth of 2-22MHz, enables the probe to perform the work of multiple conventional probes.
  • eFocusing - eFocusing employs the 850’s advanced variable beamformer to perform realtime focusing along the entire depth of the image. The technique obviates the need to set or adjust focal zones, automatically providing optimal focusing from near to far-field.
  • Active Backend - Powerful computing and image-processing hardware manages the acquired ultrasound signal, performing countless data-enhancement algorithms like Acoustic Noise Reduction and Nearfield Noise Reduction, while maintaining high frame rates.
  • OLED Monitor - The 850’s 22-inch display uses an Organic LED monitor to deliver exceptional image fidelity. Because the monitor technology does not require backlighting, true-black can be more accurately represented, resulting in greater image contrast.

Ergonomics
From its flexible monitor arm that adds smooth back and forth movement, independent of positioning, to the unique programmable 5-switch control center on the console, which streamlines advanced functions, measurements, and analysis, the 850 is engineered to deliver a fast and safe scanning experience.

Protocol Assistant
Protocol Assistant can bring standardized scanning protocols to any department in a way that is efficient and reproducible. The system learns how each user wants to perform individual studies and anticipates the Sonographer’s next step, providing the correct annotation, system parameters, and measurement tools automatically as each new image is acquired.

Automated Measurements
The 850 automates complex, repetitive measurement routines to simplify time-intensive processes like optimal frame selection for Elastography interpretation, placement of Strain Ratio regions of interest, and Estimated Fetal Weight measurements.

Adjustable Panel Height
The panel height can be lowered to 70 cm, allowing the operator to perform lower extremity examinations with the control panel comfortably within reach.
