Apogee 1000 MSK

Apogee 1000Lite with L8LN broadband linear probe (38mm footprint width, 5.0-12.0MHz), providing high resolution images and on-screen guidance for musculoskeletal ultrasound applications. This lightweight, portable ultrasound machine is also equipped with Colour and Power Doppler modes, which can help to improve diagnostic accuracy in conditions such as tennis elbow (Toit et al., 2014). Tissue Harmonic Imaging improves spatial resolution, making it easier to detect tears, such as when assessing the rotator cuff (Strobel et al., 2004). As well as for diagnostic imaging, the high resolution and large 15" monitor of the Apogee 1000Lite make it excellent for ultrasound-guided needle procedures.

Description

Apogee 1000 Lite for MSK Ultrasound

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, as well as being ideally suited for injections and needle-guided procedures. It is also our most popular system for podiatry applications, including within NHS podiatry services.

The Apogee 1000 Lite does have a needle enhancement feature which can be added on at an additional cost, but please speak to us before making a decision on this because it very much depends upon your technique (in or out of plane) as to whether this feature will be of benefit.

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.

 

Tutorials include:

Anterior elbow joint
Musculus biceps brachii tendon
Flexor tendon
The common extensor tendon
Annular ligament of radius
Humeroradial joint
Triceps tendon
Ulnar collateral ligament

Supraspinatus tendon
The long head of biceps tendon
Subscapularis tendon
Infraspinatus tendon
Acromioclavicular joint

 

What makes the Apogee 1000 Lite so suited for MSK and physio work?

One of the most important tools for MSK ultrasound is Power Doppler, yet this is frequently overlooked in the buying process because, until you begin scanning, you do not realise how vital it is. Whether you’re looking for inflammation in or around the Achilles, bursitis or tendinopathy, inflammatory arthritis (such as rheumatoid), or investigating masses, sensitive Doppler is essential. In some protocols, grading of level of vascularisation on ultrasound makes up 50% of the information required for diagnosis.

This is an area in which the Siui Apogee range excels. As sonographers ourselves, colour and power Doppler quality is one of the main qualities we look for in a system, and it was the deciding factor for us in deciding to stock Siui over other available options.

If you would like to try our machines out, please contact us to arrange to visit our ultrasound laboratory in Bromley.

For extremely detailed work like hand ultrasound, we suggest the Apogee 2300 or Siui V9. Please speak to us for help in finding the right machine.
