Immediate Detection of What Counts
The DKD in Wiesbaden (Germany) relies on unique new ultrasound technology from ZONARE
Located in Wiesbaden, Germany, the Deutsche Klinik für Diagnostik (DKD) opened its doors in 1970. As a health care center that employs highly-qualified personnel, state-of-the-art medical technology and advanced diagnostic techniques, this hospital continues to receive nationwide, but also international recognition. In the field of medical imaging, the DKD specializes in diagnostic ultrasound in difficult cases, in many cases, critically ill patients.
Dr. Jörg A. Bönhof, a course leader on internal medicine for the German Society of Ultrasound in Medicine and the DKD’s leading expert on abdominal ultrasound, reports that the hospital was in need of an ultrasound system that could be put to use universally, both as a cart-based system and as a portable device. “Finding a portable solution that would provide us with exceptionally high image quality was what counted most for us. Here, high spatial, temporal and contrast resolution were our main objectives, as these aspects are responsible for delivering an extremely high quality image of the actual structures and shapes inside the human body,” Dr. Bönhof explains.
