April 28, 2016 — Konica Minolta introduced the latest version of the Sonimage HS1 compact ultrasound system, enabling improved image quality, streamlined workflow and new cardiac functionality for the point-of-care ultrasound market. The system delivers the performance of a high-end ultrasound in a hand-carried system, making it an ideal point-of-care solution for rapid and confident evaluations at the bedside and in the exam room.
Sonimage HS1 now features Tissue Doppler Imaging, Anatomical M-Mode, a cardiac reporting package and a sector probe to enable cardiac imaging capabilities. Additional enhancements include Simple Clear Flow (SCF), which detects low flow velocities in superficial and deeper structures, and the broadband frequency L18-4 linear probe with advanced harmonics that allows for improved resolution in deep structures.
The system combines advanced digital signal processing with broadband transducer technology to support superior image quality in a hand-carried system. Smart technology ensures logical workflow in an easy touchscreen design, while quick keys bring the most common functions to the user’s fingertips. Intuitive gesture controls and focused exam presets minimize the user learning curve, with no need to navigate a knob-cluttered keyboard.
