Unveiling Innovations: Cadwell's Latest Introduction - The Sierra NMUS1 Ultrasound, Alongside the Cutting-Edge Sierra 4 Software
Wednesday, August 30, 2023
Cadwell Industries, a prominent global leader in the realm of neurodiagnostic and neuromonitoring solutions, has made a significant announcement. The long-awaited Sierra NMUS1™ neuromuscular ultrasound device tailored for electrodiagnostic medicine has been officially launched. This announcement comes shortly after the launch of the enhanced Sierra® 4 software – a dynamic platform integrated into the Sierra Summit® device, harmonizing electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction studies (NCS), clinical evoked potentials (EP), and neuromuscular ultrasound (NMUS). and neuromuscular ultrasound (NMUS).
Sierra NMUS1 Ultrasound: The revolutionary Sierra NMUS1 introduces cutting-edge capabilities in neuromuscular and musculoskeletal ultrasound. These features are complemented by needle guidance functionalities, seamlessly integrated with streamlined controls and a user-friendly interface embedded within the Sierra® 4 software. Cadwell's offerings include the L14-4 Linear Probe, the HL18-4 Linear Hockey Stick Probe, and the C-5-2 Curvilinear Probe, all of which ensure impeccable diagnostic imaging quality and precision in needle visualization.
Sierra 4 Software: The sophisticated Sierra 4 software masterfully combines electrodiagnostic testing with ultrasound imaging. Its design focuses on enhancing examination efficiency, elevating accuracy, and expanding clinical potentials. The software boasts unparalleled trace resolution, advanced artifact reduction, and a personalized user experience through tailored workflows, customizable test setups, and versatile display options. Engineered with the needs of electromyographers in mind, the Sierra Summit stands as an adaptable electrodiagnostic and imaging system, catering to those who prioritize reliability and efficiency.
The NMUS+ protocol seamlessly integrates elements from NCS+ and EMG+ workflows, resulting in an ultrasound component that feels familiar and becomes an integral part of the electrodiagnostic examination process. This groundbreaking software marks the industry's pioneer solution dedicated exclusively to neuromuscular ultrasound. Notably, NMUS+ introduces Q-Mode™, an innovative research tool designed for ultrasonic diagnostics and tissue quantification.
Through the NMUS+ software, electromyographers can:
Compare outcomes against normal or contralateral values
- Automatically label images and findings
- Effortlessly measure, annotate, and archive images and cine sequences
- Harness advanced speckle reduction, edge enhancement, and spatial compounding for optimal image refinement
- Generate comprehensive reports encompassing both electrodiagnostic and imaging findings
Cadwell is driving the advancement of neuromuscular ultrasound. The integration of imaging and electrodiagnostic capabilities holds the potential to revolutionize diagnostics, facilitating more accurate and efficient assessments that ultimately enhance patient outcomes.
