Hand-carried ultrasound system designed for you
The SONIMAGE HS1 is a Point-of-Care portable ultrasound system designed to support a wide range of applications and patient types. The system's advanced technologies ensure superior image quality and efficient workflow.
Designed with your help
Streamlined Console and Intuitive Operation
The simple console and intuitive touchscreen increase flexibility for different user preferences and workflow situations. The console has been streamlined to include trackball plus only the eight most frequently used keys. The result is improved workflow efficiency.
See beyond your expectations
By combining an originally developed the ultra-wide band high frequency probe and the newly image engine, Konica Minolta have succeeded in transmitting and receiving Differential Harmonic /Additional Harmonic / Harmonic chords that come into the band.
This advanced technology features allow improved image detail and contrast resolution for precision diagnosis and better patient outcomes. The high frequency linear probe “L18-4” provides exceptional image quality with an advanced level of Tissue Harmonic “T2HI”, and it is particularly ideal for superficial.
Improve Image Quality
Konica Minolta's Dual Sonic Technology uses a unique algorithm that enables the transmission of two waveforms, according to the focusing depth. In combination with T²HI technology, it forms a high quality THI signal around the center of ultrasound beam in the receiving area. As a result, it suppresses the acoustic noise and ensures the optimum image from deep area to superficial.
Simple Needle Visualization (SNV) improves the detection of the needle tip in both "In plane" and "Out of plane" approaches.
Also, a new function "Auto" of SNV Steer automatically detects the insertion of the needle and adjusts the beam accordingly.
A wide range of applications
Auto IMT (intima-media thickness) calculation is an advanced quantification application to assess arterial health. This non-invasive method to evaluate cardiovascular risk contains an IMT measurement, calculates a Vascular Age and Framingham Risk Factors.
Voice activation of The SONIMAGE HS1 allows for handsfree operation during interventional procedures
- Simple and accurate voice activation
- Handsfree system operation
- No need to break the sterile field
- Focus more on the patient
- Enhance diagnostic efficiency
The SONIMAGE HS1 voice control operation feature fosters user comfort and proper operator ergonomics at the point-of-care.
This is a unique real-time qualitative imaging method that calculates and displays the relative stiffness of tissue.
It also provides further clinical information for assessment of superficial lesions.
