December 9, 2013 — Konica Minolta Medical Imaging announced the launch of the Sonimage P3 hand-held ultrasound device. The Sonimage P3 brings advanced imaging capabilities to the patient or bedside. It can help clinicians visually assess a patient efficiently and immediately for a rapid diagnosis that can improve health at an affordable price. Konica Minolta showcased the Sonimage P3 at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013) in Chicago.
  
Sonimage P3 is an easy-to-use personal ultrasound device that can be carried in a lab coat or worn like a stethoscope for real-time patient diagnosis at the point of care — in triage situations, outpatient/office or on any hospital bed floor. Providing high image quality, this durable, palm-sized device weights less than 14 ounces and offers B-mode, M-mode, Doppler and simple to access presets.
 
Ideal for a broad range of applications including fetal/pregnancy assessments and abdominal, lung and pelvic examinations, the Sonimage P3 can be used as a stand-alone ultrasound system or plugged into a Windows-based PC, laptop or tablet for the flexibility of a larger display. All Sonimage P3 devices come standard with Sonimage View software for online imaging and offline review and storage.
 
The device also features a high-resolution touchscreen, choice of interchangeable transducers and a 4GB data card that stores 10,000-plus images. As with many of Konica Minolta’s solutions, the Sonimage P3 is upgradeable for investment protection.
