French portable ultrasound developer Sonoscanner has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its U-Lite EXP scanner.

U-Lite EXP is the second generation of the company's U-Lite ultraportable scanner platform, which was first introduced in the U.S. in 2015. The new version offers better diagnostic performance and improved image definition, according to the company.

The new system incorporates 256-element 18-MHz probes, which assist in the diagnosis of small breast tumors or musculoskeletal diseases. It includes six high-definition interchangeable problems and is suited for clinical applications in gynecology, obstetrics, urology, anesthesia, endocrinology, osteoarticular, and general medicine. The unit is lightweight, weighing in at 600 grams, and includes a touchscreen interface, the vendor stated.

The company sees U-Lite EXP as the key to its goal of penetrating the U.S. ultrasound market; the company plans to showcase the system at the Journées Francophones de Radiologie (JFR) 2017 congress in Paris on 13-16 October and at the RSNA 2017 meeting.
