Konica Minolta Medical Imaging has launched its high-end, handheld Sonimage HS1 ultrasound system at RSNA 2014.
The portable system has advanced transducer and tissue harmonic imaging technology, according to the company. The system's high sensitivity and broadband linear probe features multilevel matching layer, optimized component materials, and nanofabrication technology. It also uses a five-level wave control algorithm to generate separate harmonic signals that cover the entire receive spectrum of the system.
The system also has digital signal processing, and clinicians can visualize structures as small as several hundred microns. The customizable touchscreen means users can program quick keys and image acquisition with a one-button touch, the firm said.
In addition, the system provides ease-of-use and workflow efficiency with connectivity to Konica Minolta's ImagePilot workstation and Informity, an automated cloud-based backup and image sharing system.
