High-resolution 3D/4D imaging distinguishes a new dedicated ob/gyn ultrasound system from competitors, according to its South Korean developer, Medison.  The Accuvix V20 Prestige, which debuted last week at the ISUOG (International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology)  meeting in Hamburg, Germany, is optimized for evaluating obstetrical, pelvic, and abdominal anatomy. It provides 360-degree articulated monitor arm, ergonomic key grouping, and a 19-inch flat LCD with haze eliminating filter.
