October 27, 2016 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. announced in September that the New York School of Regional Anesthesia (NYSORA) has chosen the SonImage HS1 as the exclusive ultrasound system for its workshops focusing on anesthesia and pain management.

NYSORA provides training and education to more than 1,000 physicians annually in the United States and internationally in regional anesthesia, pain management and peri-operative medicine. The clinicians who attend NYSORA conferences and workshops frequently use ultrasound during needle guidance procedures to improve accuracy.

SonImage HS1 has the ability to deliver the performance of a high-end ultrasound unit in a hand-carried system, making it an ideal point-of-care solution for rapid and confident evaluations at the bedside and in the exam room. The system provides enhanced visualization for guidance during therapeutic procedures including pain management. In addition, the broad frequency linear probe, L18-4, is ideal for both deep and superficial structures, according to Konica Minolta.

"The Konica Minolta ultrasound system provides everything a clinician needs. It's highly accurate, provides outstanding image quality, is convenient to use, and has a small footprint in the peri-operative point-of-care applications," explained NYSORA Director Admir Hadzic, M.D., Ph.D. "Our workshop educational programs are always sold out and we're increasing the number to meet demand. To fulfill our educational requirements, we needed high-quality, transportable and cost-effective equipment that also provides excellent image quality and that's the SonImage HS1."
