Superior Performance, Ultimate Flexibility The Elite is a configurable, ultrasound Doppler used to detect the fetal heartbeat and to assist in monitoring peripheral arterial and venous blood flow. Weve taken over 30 years of Doppler experience and created a product that excels in every facet of performance. The Elite has a comfortable probe shape that makes finding a signal easier than ever before. It combines extreme sensitivity and incredibly clear, static-free sound into a compact, pocket-sized package. Proven Obstetric Reliability The comfortable shape of the Elite probe is easy to hold and features broad-beam technology, making it very easy to find and lock onto the signal of interest. Our probe technology has been tested in obstetric applications for years and is effective in detecting fetal heartbeats as early as 8 weeks in most pregnancies. The Nicolet Elite obstetric system comes with your choice of a 3 MHz probe for early fetal heart beat detection or a 2 MHz probe for use in later pregnancy or with larger patients. Superior Vascular Performance The pre-angled crystals, broad-beam technology and large probe face of our 5 MHz probe allow you to quickly locate vascular signals. There is no need to angle the probe, simply align it along the vessel of interest. For more specific vessel assessment, the Elite offers a traditional pencil-style 8 MHz probe. The vascular probes allow the user to locate both superficial and deep vessels quickly and provides a clear signal.
