How It Works
A Versatile Imaging Platform
The TouchView® System uses a small, hand-held probe to take ultrasound images of a patient's body – images that are processed on the nearby Terason 2000+™ laptop system. Like other medical sonography devices, the TouchView transducer uses high-frequency sound waves to medically image portions of your patient's body.
Imaging with the TouchView Probe
The lightweight TouchView probe is easily held between the index and middle fingers, allowing you to maintain touch and feel while imaging.
The TouchView transducer images soft tissue up to 9 cm below the skin – from the dermis down to the superficial and deep fat layers. The probe's optimal imaging resolution is between 1.5 and 4 cm.
Processing TouchView Images with the Terason 2000+
The TouchView System is engineered to make interpretation clear and measurement simple. The superior imaging capabilities of the Terason 2000+ console allow the physician to precisely image and measure fatty tissue and muscle layers. Built-in Power Doppler technology simplifies the detection of blood vessels by color coding blood flow on the ultrasound image.
A Range of Clinical Applications
The system can be used pre-, intra- and post-aesthetic treatments to meet your clinical needs. Used before aesthetic procedures, the TouchView System can aid in treatment planning or act as a consultation tool to help set realistic patient expectations.
Augmentation and wrinkle reduction procedures can be enhanced by using the TouchView System to precisely place fillers, injectables or autologous fat to improve overall results and the longevity of the treatments.
Post-procedure, the TouchView System can be used to detect seroma formation or other complications, or to quantitatively show a patient the results of their treatment. For example, breast implants can be monitored right in your office on a consistent basis to help detect irregularities and potential leaks.
