Konica Minolta Launches Sonimage MX1 Portable Ultrasound System

June 28, 2018 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. introduced the Sonimage MX1 portable ultrasound system, optimized for musculoskeletal (MSK) and orthopedic practices, interventional guidance and outpatient centers. Sonimage MX1 delivers the power, ease-of-use and portability that physicians need to make a confident and efficient diagnosis at the point-of-care. Designed for MSK, anesthesia and pain management exams, the new ultrasound system provides high-resolution image quality and simplified workflow with an intuitive touchscreen interface.

Developed with the MSK practitioner in mind to shorten the system learning curve, the easy-to-use MX1 System features one-touch image optimization to simplify operation. Multiple imaging parameters, such as frequency, focus and compounding, can be changed automatically by just adjusting the depth. The result of these customized settings, according to the company, is exceptional image quality and resolution reliably and repeatedly, enabling physicians to make a confident diagnosis, provide therapeutic needle guidance and monitor rehabilitation.

An intuitive touchscreen with focused point-of-care exams and a five-button console further improve clinical workflow and ease-of-use. The new Dual Sonic Technology controls ultrasonic noise and enhances ultrasonic transmission efficiency to deliver clear delineation of structures as small as hundreds of microns in diameter.

Konica Minolta offers transducers that are compatible with both the Sonimage MX1 and the Sonimage HS1. The portable MX1 System is available immediately with a five-year warranty.
