November 1, 2016 — Konica Minolta announced it will be introducing a series of new ultrasound accessories and technologies at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, Nov. 27-Dec. 2 in Chicago.

Among the new introductions will be:

  • The HL18-4 hockey stick linear transducer for musculoskeletal (MSK) and pain management applications. The hockey stick probe reaches difficult-to-access areas easily with its small footprint and maneuverability. The clinician can evaluate joints in the fingers and ankle more readily with the probe’s angulation, improved control and greater contact with the anatomy. The high-frequency probe provides excellent resolution in the near field for tissue differentiation and visualizes color flow with outstanding Doppler sensitivity, according to Konica Minolta;
  • The SONIMAGE HS1 Rheumatology report package is an efficient way to track and organize ultrasound images. Still images along with real-time clips can be stored and assigned to each joint. The RA protocol is integrated and customizable. It can be operated from a foot switch, allowing the user to move rapidly through the exam without taking their hands off of the probe; and
  • The SONIMAGE HS1 Simple Needle Visualization (SNV) feature incorporates an advanced algorithm that utilizes both the in-plane and out-of-plane methods to improve needle visibility, especially in steep angle approaches. The resulting clarity of the needle enables increased accuracy in needle placement, making the portable ultrasound system an ideal solution for pain management guided injections.
