Shimadzu Medical Systems grew its product line at the 1999 RSNA meeting with the introductions of SDU-2200, a general-purpose ultrasound scanner, and SDU-1200, a special-purpose scanner.

SDU-1200 is targeted for radiology/abdominal, vascular, ob/gyn, urology, and breast imaging applications. The works-in-progress scanners are the first color systems Shimadzu will bring to the U.S. marketplace.

SDU-2200 includes a 64-channel, quad-receive digital beamformer, while SDU-1200 employs a 48-channel, dual-receive digital beamformer. Both systems are equipped with color and power Doppler capabilities.

Equipped with convex and linear probes, SDU-1200 will cost approximately $65,000. SDU-2200, including convex, linear, and sector probes, will cost approximately $80,000. The Torrance, CA-based vendor hopes to begin shipments in May, pending Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance.

In future upgrade plans, Shimadzu plans to add harmonic imaging for SDU-2200 and 3-D capability for both SDU-2200 and SDU-1200. These features are expected to be available by the third quarter of next year.
