ECHELON Smart with SynergyDrive

The speed of the system is enhanced with three technologies: SynergyDrive, IR-RAPID, and AutoExam.

The content on this page is intended to healthcare professionals and equivalents.

Major features and advantages
Constant system monitoring

The Sentinel server monitors the system status 24 hours a day.

Automatic notification feature

When the Sentinel server detects either a malfunction or a lowered performance of the system, an alert is automatically reported to our service site. This helps to prevent the occurrence of a malfunction. Furthermore, a corrective measure is quickly taken in case of malfunction.

Direct connection feature

This feature provides service via direct connection of the service site and your system. To track down the causes of a malfunction, we check artifacts and abnormal images, check image data before reconstruction (raw data) and run test programs on the system.


Such features as encryption of communication data and communication based on mutual authentication are available to protect patient information. Furthermore, the specification does not allow recognition of personal information included in Patient Lists and images (such as an patient's name, sex, weight, age, and date of birth) on the Sentinel server and the Service Site.
