60 years of Innovation, Quality, and Proven Excellence

At Hitachi Aloka, all of our resources are devoted to ultrasound. We are the largest dedicated ultrasound company in the world, and we have been “The Innovator in Ultrasound” for almost 60 years.

In 1960, we developed the world’s first commercially available diagnostic ultrasound system. In 1980, Hitachi Aloka started development of a two-dimensional blood flow imaging technique (Color Doppler) for the real-time imaging of blood flow. In 1983, Hitachi Aloka released the world’s first cardiovascular Color Doppler system and two years later, the world’s first intraoperative and abdominal Color Doppler system.

Hitachi Aloka’ product range has small compact, portable systems as well as powerful consoles designed for the medical center environment. Hitachi Aloka has developed the most versatile, most complete ultrasound solution available today. This system - ProSound - was first introduced in 1996. Since that time we have made numerous innovations, and delivered more than 12,000 ProSound systems worldwide.

Hitachi Aloka’s high-performance and user friendly ultrasound systems are renowned for reliability and are manufactured to highest industry standards by a dedicated workforce.

Whatever your ultrasound requirement, Hitachi Aloka has a system available to meet your needs.


What our customers say

Cardiovascular : e-Tracking
Until today it has not been possible to evaluate stiffness parameters by means of vascular machines, which required specific competence and organization. eTRACKING, developed by Hitachi Aloka, overcomes these limitations because the soft-ware is implemented into the normal echo-equipment and the parameters are obtained by a normal vascular transducer with a frequency of 10 Mhz. The technique is not time-consuming and the parameters can be obtained in a routine examination of the neck vessels.
