Improved Image Quality, Streamlined Workflow and New Cardiac Functionality With Version 3.0 Release for SONIMAGE HS1

WAYNE, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 28, 2016) - Konica Minolta introduced today 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 SONIMAGE HS1 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.

"With the release of Version 3.0, Konica Minolta is strengthening the capabilities of the SONIMAGE HS1 as a shared service system, providing facilities with enhanced economic value," says Joan Toth, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, the Americas, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging.

The SONIMAGE HS1 combines powerful 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 touch screen 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. Superior image quality, streamlined workflow and ease of use make the SONIMAGE HS1 a perfect choice for point-of-care ultrasound environments.
