Unlike conventional beam-steering technology, SONIMAGE HS1 incorporates an algorithm that utilizes two techniques—in-plane and out-plane—to improve needle visualization; this is especially important in steep angle approaches. The result is depiction of the needle tip that eliminates the need to position the ultrasound probe perpendicular to the needle, which is not always attainable due to patient positioning requirements or demanding clinical environments. The resulting needle conspicuity helps enable effective procedures.
The Flow Pixel Counter (FPC) provides the information of proportion of blood flow signals presented within a region of interest (ROI) as a general measurement for 2D-mode. FPC can be used to calculate the ratio of a specific ROI to the area of specific blood flow signals presence. As such, it is a useful tool for evaluating new blood vessels within a tumor or inflammation of the synovial membrane in rheumatoid patients.
The best-in-class L18-4 linear transducer provides the high image quality required for penetrating deep tissue to view the muscles, tendons, and nerves for musculoskeletal evaluations or pain management applications. The unique, lightweight design is big on image quality for fast and clear depiction of structures, enhancing clinical confidence at the point of care.
A keen focus on ergonomic design combined with ease of use and flexibility to enhance patient management. The SONIMAGE HS1 is built for virtually any healthcare environment—it can be used on a cart or desktop.
A sleek, compact, and a simple click interface for data distribution provides exceptional economic value across a variety of healthcare environments—from the clinic to the bedside. With seamless connectivity via DICOM to the ImagePilot or other information systems, the SONIMAGE HS1 provides an array of workflow options to meet your current needs and allow for future growth.
