The SonoSite EDGE II is a high-resolution, all-digital, 9.0-pound (4.1 kg) ultrasound system with a 12.1in. LED full-bleed glass display. The Edge II boosts improvements in cardiac and abdominal image quality through DirectClear Technology and a new wide-angle display, as well as alignment with the SonoSite pillars. The Edge II features Armored Cable Technology on select transducers, a keypad sealed to the Edge for protection against infection, and persistent knobs for more precise actions. As with our past products, the Edge II is designed with SonoSite's proprietary Chip Fusion Technology that integrates digital signal processing and multiple system functions into a custom application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) microchip.
