The iU22 is phenomenal - very easy to use. One caveat - make sure you clean your filters and back-up/delete patient info on a regular basis. Keep the hard drive under 60%.
The Zonare was nice as well but we were fortunate (in Beverly) to get the iU22.

to remove some of the limitations for availability of this test. For instance,
eliminating the Welcome To Medicare requirement and making the screening
available to anyone 65-75 as a one-time beneft, and allowing women without
family history to be eligible.
