Mindray North America Brings Innovative Ultrasound Technologies to Cincinnati Children's Hospital

Global developer of next-generation medical devices and software brings industry-leading Resona 7 Ultrasound System to one of the top three children's hospitals in the nation


Mindray announced its partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, one of the top children's hospitals in the United States

November 13, 2019 – Mindray announced its partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, one of the top children's hospitals in the United States, according to U.S. News and World Report 2019-2020. For nearly 30 years, Mindray has built a reputation for manufacturing high-quality, cutting-edge medical technology and delivering unparalleled customer support.

"Today's healthcare environment, more so than ever before, requires clinicians to be incredibly scrupulous when evaluating new vendor relationships," said Wayne Quinn, President of Mindray North America. "Each day, the teams at Cincinnati Children's have a responsibility to provide industry-leading care to children and their families, and, as their partner, we have the responsibility to provide excellence in service, development and innovation to support their mission. We believe in collaborations that shape progressive outcomes and contribute to our vision of better healthcare for all, and I am extremely pleased to be partnering with an organization that is so similarly aligned."

Mindray's Resona 7 Ultrasound System with second-generation Ultra-Wideband Non-Linear (UWN+) Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) imaging uses both harmonic and fundamental signals to improve contrast and temporal resolution during CEUS studies. Enabled by ZONE Sonography Technology+ (ZST+), the system's Advanced Acoustic Acquisition uses large zones to acquire 90 percent more echo data, at speeds up to 10 times faster than conventional systems, which enables fast frame rates that can improve scanning efficiencies with the most restless pediatric patients. From skin line to deepest depth, dynamic pixel focusing creates a perfectly focused image every pixel, every frame, every time, while HD Scope analyzes the received channel data to improve spatial and contrast resolution for various tissue types, especially the smallest of lesions.

"Their efforts to understand our ultrasound needs, interests, and desired future directions made all the difference in our decision to partner with Mindray," said Brian D. Coley, M.D., radiologist-in-chief at Cincinnati Children's. "The advancements they have made in pediatric imaging are groundbreaking and will allow us to further our mission of improving child health and transforming the delivery of care, and their five-year warranty and investment protection will ensure me, my team, and our patients are at the forefront of ultrasound technology today and in the future."

Ultrasound is the imaging modality of choice for safe diagnosis and treatment in pediatric radiology. A clear image with consistent, rapid frame rates is crucial when diagnosing the youngest of patients. The Resona 7 Ultrasound System with ZST+ and newly designed pediatric transducers provides the ideal platform for pediatric imaging.
