November 17, 2015 — Konica Minolta introduces version 2.0 of its Sonimage HS1 hand carry ultrasound system at the 2015 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Version 2.0 combines features of the first-generation system with new enhancements to image quality, ease-of-use and wireless connectivity to provide a more streamlined approach for radiologists treating at the point-of-care.

The system includes better differentiation, allowing clinicians to view subtle variations in the far field of the image to provide more accurate care for the patient. Additionally, due to an increase of sensitivity to color flow in the next generation of the Sonimage HS1, physicians will now have the ability to more clearly see the blood flow within a specific area of the body. An added benefit includes better sensitivity to simple needle visualizations, which allows radiologists to visualize the needle more clearly within the tissue even at deep angles, enabling safer and more efficient procedures.

The next generation of the Sonimage HS1 also gives physicians a wireless hand carry ultrasound that will help in workflow efficiency during diagnosis and treatment when hardwire connection is not possible. Based on feedback from customers and Konica Minolta's specialty ultrasound R&D team, version 2.0 also includes optional features, such as the triple transducer port, keyboard kit, three-pedal foot switch, and has reduced keystrokes to just one touch of a button on many operations to speed workflow and improve patient experiences.

In addition, the cloud backup solution will automatically create a mirror image of the Sonimage HS1/ImagePilot system, including images, patient demographics and system settings.
