The Apogee 1000 Lite is the perfect portable ultrasound machine for musculoskeletal work. Equipped with a high frequency linear probe, the quality of its images make diagnosis quick and easy.
If you’re new to ultrasound, SIUI’s unique on-screen guidance (‘S-Helper’) for elbow or shoulder scanning will help get you started right away. It guides probe positioning, and provides an example ultrasound image for you to match yours to. You can use it purely for practice, or even when with a patient, as it can easily be switched off once you’ve found your positioning.
