Konica Minolta Sonimage HS1 Ultrasound
The SONIMAGE HS1 provides best-in-class image quality with the ease-of-use and workflow efficiency you expect from Konica Minolta. From bedside to the procedure room, the HS1 delivers high-end ultrasound imaging capabilities in a portable design. Clinicians can visualize structures as small as several hundred microns, making it ideal for detailed tissue visualization and differentiation that increases clinical confidence and productivity. This ultrasound system brings the performance of a high-end ultrasound system in a compact design. Advanced digital signal processing further elevates the high resolution imaging for exceptional detail.
The SONIMAGE HS1, with its high sensitivity and broadband linear probe, features several advancements in transducer technology, such as a multi-level matching layer, optimized component materials, and nanofabrication technology. The HS1 uses a five-level wave control algorithm to generate separate harmonic signals that cover the entire receive spectrum of the system. As a result, the HS1 overcomes many common trade-offs between resolution and penetration, providing the right balance for optimum, best-in-class image quality.
Intuitive Design For Ease Of Use
The SONIMAGE HS1 ultrasound simplifies fast image capture. You can program quick keys for those used most often, and optimize images with a one button touch for an efficient workflow that enhances patient comfort and management. An ergonomic design makes it easy to maneuver around the most difficult environments. The sleek and compact HS1 offers the flexibility needed for high clinical confidence and economic value anywhere and at any time.
Workflow needs to be efficient and seamless, especially at the point of care. That’s why SONIMAGE HS1 works effortlessly within existing networks to share imaging data. Boost clinical efficiency with one-click access and data distribution by connecting SONIMAGE HS1 to Konica Minolta’s ImagePilot workstation and Informity, the most complete and automated cloud-based backup solution. Informity automatically creates a redundant copy of images, patient data, and system settings of your SONIMAGE HS1 / ImagePilot system and securely stores it off site, helping to fulfill HIPAA security and privacy requirements.
Designed For Improved Workflow
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.
|Flow Pixel Counter|
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 presents. As such, it is a useful tool for evaluating new blood vessels within a tumor or inflammation of the synovial membrane in rheumatoid patients.
|High Resolution Probe|
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.
|Simple Needle Visualization|
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.
