Sacramento Ultrasound Institute to Use Whale Lambda P9 Ultrasounds in Diagnostic Medical Sonography Education
Whale Imaging, the manufacturer of the P-Series portable ultrasound systems, has partnered with Sacramento Ultrasound Institute (SUI) to enhance ultrasound sonography education. Since August 2017, SUI has been among the first institutions in the U.S. to use Whale’s latest portable, the Lambda P9 cardiovascular ultrasound.
“As experts in sonography, SUI has become a valuable partner in the evaluation and improvement of our ultrasound technology,” states William Wong, CEO of Whale Imaging. Now, one year after the launch of the Lambda P9, SUI just purchased an additional four machines to be used in its educational curriculum.
Whale has been working with Sima Dermishyan, CEO of SUI, over the past year. “As a new product in June of 2017, I could tell the Lambda P9 was an excellent ultrasound machine, and Whale has added additional useful features during the time we have used it,” says Dermishyan. “I have been impressed with Whale’s willingness to accept feedback and the speed in which software updates are released. This type of relationship would not be possible with any other ultrasound manufacturer.”
“While Whale’s technology is mainly used in clinical practice, there is tremendous value in engaging with students of sonography. We want our machines to be as intuitive and easy to use as possible, which allows users to focus on the patient,” says Wong. Whale ultrasounds are also being used for teaching at Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania, as well as Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
