"Optimal treatment of PE is still poorly understood and there is a need for a coordinated institutional approach to this complex, life-threatening problem," said Kenneth Rosenfield, M.D., study co-lead principal investigator and section head, Vascular Medicine and Intervention, Division of Cardiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. "The lead investigators of the trial are pleased to collaborate with the PERT Consortium, which is committed to evidence-driven therapy and is proud to take part in the HI-PEITHO study, aiming to advance the care of patients with PE."

On April 30th, SonoScape received the CE-marking, the product’s “Passport to Europe“, for its linear-array echoendoscope EG-UC5T. This further expands SonoScape’s endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) portfolio in the international market.

Reaping the benefits of decades of ultrasound technology know-how, SonoScape’s EUS product line officially debuted in September 2019, when its 360° radial-array echoendoscope EG-UR5 obtained the CE Marking, leaping to the 4th company in the world to master the core technology of EUS.

EG-UC5T is characterized by its large, 4.0-mm instrument channel and its short rigid distal end, pushing the boundaries of therapeutic excellence. With the arrival of the linear-array echoendoscope EG-UC5T, SonoScape users are not only able to perform the adequate tissue sampling, but also various therapeutic interventional endoscopic procedures under the sonographic guidance. This is a true “best of the two worlds”, a golden key to reveal what’s behind the GI tract mucosa and to unlock the growing possibilities of advanced endoscopy.

“SonoScape’s EUS portfolio will certainly extend the company’s path into more and larger hospitals. This again underpins the company’s leading role in the global digestive endoscopy market.” said Steven He, Sales Director of Endoscopy Division at SonoScape: “We have achieved great results with our current gastrointestinal endoscopes, and I am confident that the new linear-array echoendoscopes will set us to a higher success.”

The last 25 years have witnessed a major expansion of EUS to various applications, both diagnostic and therapeutic, as noted in Friedberg SR, Lachter J, World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (2017).  Focused on delivering high quality products, SonoScape continues to bring significant value to the world of endoscopy.
