Elite 5600

From: $1,990.00 From: $1,791.00

The Number 1 Choice of Dog Breeders

  • Quality images at an affordable price
  • Capable of pregnancy confirmation and SO MUCH MORE
  • From one of the industry’s most established manufacturers
  • Convex probe INCLUDED
  • Microconvex probe option available for small-medium breeds

There’s a reason why the Elite is so popular- you won’t find another machine at this price with this level of image quality or possibility of application. It’s that simple.

Why Pay More?

Are there cheaper options out there? Sure… But can they boast the same image clarity? NO. Do they come with the probe included in the price? NO. Do they have additional  probe options to suit your needs? NO. Do they come with a 2 year warranty in addition to FREE LIFETIME SUPPORT from masters qualified sonographers? NO!


Wait. What!?

Yes, you read that right; when you buy an Elite 5600 or any other ultrasound machine from ScanX, you will receive troubleshooting support 7 days a week from sonographers that actually use the equipment we sell. What’s more, our professional staff have over 25 combined years in the ultrasound industry, so you’re in the safest hands possible every step of the way.

Do I Need To Select A Different Probe?

A convex probe is included in the price of the machine and is a great choice to stick with if you’re on a budget or scanning giant dog breeds and larger species (such as most goat breeds and bigger). All you have to do is go straight to check out and you will receive your machine with the convex probe by default and you’re ready to go!

However, if you’re scanning medium to tiny breeds, then your best option is to select the Microconvex probe in the drop down menu. A Microconvex will elevate the clarity of your scan images to a whole new level and be much easier to use on most dog breeds and small species. So, if you can afford it, the upgrade is definitely worth the investment.

To summarise: for most goats and large dogs, we recommend sticking with the convex probe. For small-medium sized dogs and Nigerian Dwarf goats, we recommend the microconvex probe.

A 6.5MHz linear rectal probe is available for equine reproductive scanning.


Quality Made Simple

Product Features

About the KX5600 Ultrasound Scanner

  • High resolution 64 channel multifrequency transducer, made with superior quality matching and backing layers for minimum beam width (higher resolution on all planes) and maximum noise reduction for a high signal-to-noise ratio.

  • 10.4″ high resolution colour LED backlit display, for a stunning high-contrast making obtaining diagnostic images easier than ever.

  • Backlit keyboard for use in dark rooms.

  • Adjustable screen brightness.

  • Weight: 4.5kg, Dimensions: 256x150x326mm

Technical Specifications
  • Adjustable depth, up to 236mm (also dependent upon choice of transducer). This is important because some structures may be close to the skin surface, but others a lot deeper.

  • Gain 0-127dB.

  • Contrast 27-90dB.

  • Grey Scale: 256. The wide range of grey scale and contrast settings allows you to have a high contrast image or a large range of greys, depending on your preference and the application. For abdominal scanning, for example, it is often advantageous to use a wide range of greys in order to discern subtle differences in texture. In echocardiography, a higher contrast image is often desirable. In early pregnancy detection in canine or feline patients, high contrast can allow the quick and easy identification of small pregnancy sacs, whereas a wider range of greys in later pregnancy gives a much more rich and detailed image.

  • 8 TGC levels, for optimising your gain settings to perfection. Useful when scanning fluid-filled structures (to cancel out acoustic enhancement distal to the fluid), such as when looking below the bladder in pregnancy scanning or when scanning cysts and other masses.

  • Frame rate: 30fps, avoiding a laggy, delayed image. Particularly important when imaging moving fast-moving subjects such as foetesus and the heart.

  • B, 2B, 4B, B/M, M-mode. M-Mode is still very popular in veterinary medicine for echocardiography, and in human medicine for specific applications such as looking at the foetal heart or the collapse of the adult inferior vena cava on inspiration.

  • 8 pseudo colour options. In some instances, the human eye can pick out certain details better in colour. This can be useful, for example, in early pregnancy detection in dogs or for better endocardial definition in basic heart scanning.

  • 256 frame Cine loop, with roller ball to be able to scroll back through the clip after freezing the image.

  • Image storage: extra large 4GB hard disk for permanent storage of ~5000 images.

  • Needle guide function with adjustable on-screen guide lines, perfect for performing biopsies.

  • Measurement package includes all standard measurements including distance, area, volume and perimeter.

  • Calculation packages for basic cardiac (suitable for cardiac screening only – not for quantifying complex pathology), gynaecology, obstetric (gestational age estimation, amniotic fluid measurement, crown-rump length), urology (residual urine volume, prostate volume).

Standard Configuration
  • KX5600 Ultrasound Unit

  • 3.5MHz Convex Transducer

  • Two probe sockets

  • Power adaptor

Optional Extras
  • Li Battery

  • 6.5MHz microconvex probe

  • 7.5MHz linear probe

  • 7.5MHz linear rectal probe

Please note that a battery is NOT included as standard with this portable ultrasound machine. Many beginners believe this to be a necessity, but you will soon find that it is generally defunct, as all premises have their own power supply. Even in the farm environment, a generator will invariably be available.
