Konica Minolta Healthcare Announces UGPro Solution for Ultrasound-Guided Procedures

August 7, 2018 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. announces UGPro Solution, a new initiative that provides complete solutions for ultrasound-guided procedures (UGP) and therapies. By acquiring complimentary products and developing distribution agreements, Konica Minolta Healthcare is expanding its product and service portfolio vertically in the MSK specialty. The company is taking a novel and comprehensive approach by providing solutions that unite advanced ultrasound technology, such as the Sonimage HS1 and Sonimage MX1, with the latest minimally-invasive procedural technologies in regenerative medicine and robust, skills-based education to provide musculoskeletal (MSK) clinicians with a better way to provide care.

Ultrasound-guided procedures are an important therapy option that can improve the patient experience and clinical outcome across an expanding range of MSK conditions and procedures in orthopedics and regenerative medicine. The new UGPro Solution initiative from Konica Minolta enables MSK practitioners to expand clinical options for their patients and deliver a more accurate diagnosis and precise treatment. For example, the company’s recent distribution agreement with HydroCision combines the HS1 System with the TenJet Percutaneous Tenotomy System, an all-in-one tool for needling, debridement and lavage of diseased tissue under ultrasound guidance.

In addition, Konica Minolta is sponsoring hands-on education and training for UGP in a variety of settings — from a clinical practice to regional workshops in Anaheim, Calif., Atlanta, Chicago and at the company’s corporate headquarters in Wayne, N.J. Konica Minolta will combine its technical and clinical expertise with curriculum and skills-based learning to provide clinical education designed to meet the specific proficiency needs of MSK practitioners.

A key component of the comprehensive UGPro Solution initiative is the incorporation of Sonimage HS1 and Sonimage MX1 ultrasound systems, featuring advanced MSK functionality and superior image detail and contrast resolution. Both systems support needle guidance for interventional procedures and treatment management at the point-of-care.
