Pie gets FDA clearance for ob/gyn portable ultrasound

The FDA has cleared the Picus 3.0 ultrasound scanner made by Dutch-based Pie Medical. Picus 3.0 is a digital, portable system designed for ob/gyn use. Three probes can be connected simultaneously, and a new transrectal/transvaginal transducer option is also available for the system.

The scanner features integrated color flow, B-mode, M-mode, angio, and autotrace spectral Doppler modalities. Pie also offers a selection of ob/gyn calculation packages, including amniotic fluid index, twins-quadruplets, fetal-age tables, and fetal weight formulas and ratios.

Pie is a subsidiary of the Esaote group, which in turn is part of the Bracco Group in Genoa, Italy. Pie Medical USA shares facilities with Biosound Esaote in Indianapolis.
