KONICA SONIMAGE HS1
The SONIMAGE HS1 delivers the superior image quality and needle visualization required for confident patient care decisions across a variety of MSK environments – orthopedics, sports medicine, physical medicine, and pain management.
The KONICA SONIMAGE HS1, with improved signal penetration, increased color flow sensitivity, and enhanced resolution, is capable of detailed tissue differentiation, detecting structures as small as several hundred microns. In combination with beam-steering technology, the HS1 incorporates an advanced algorithm that utilizes both the in-plane and out-of-plane methods to increase needle visibility, especially in steep angle approaches. The resulting clarity of the needle enables extended accuracy in needle placement, making the portable system an ideal solution for pain management guided injections.
The UltraAdjust image optimization feature allows imaging parameters to be changed by simply adjusting depth. Various imaging parameters such as trapezoid setting, contrast enhancements, SI filter, and focus position are automatically optimized “with the touch of the depth button”
• Improved Workflow.
• MSK presets linked to anatomical structures are optimized when depth is adjusted.
Voice activation of the KONICA SONIMAGE HS1 Ultrasound System 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 HS1 System voice control operation feature fosters user comfort and proper operator ergonomics at the point-of-care.
The panoramic view is an imaging process that produces a panoramic image that provides both qualitative and quantitative information. Panoramic imaging stitches a series of images to give one long image in order to:
• Assess larger lesions.
• Construct a cross-section image of a structure.
• Show the relationship of two structures in a single image.
Panoramic imaging technology widens the field of view for precise clinical diagnosis and interventional procedures.
Strain Elastography is a real-time qualitative and quantitative imaging software feature that calculates and displays the relative stiffness of tissue. The image is generated from strain generated by the pressure of the transducer on the tissue. Use elastography to visibly assess changes in tendon and ligament elasticity.
