Visicoil MR: Enhanced MRI Visibility

The new Visicoil MR is a helically-wound, flexible linear fiducial marker. The Visicoil MR hollow core design and multiple sizes mitigates the CT artifact often created by traditional gold seeds, offering you clearer visualization of the tissue to aid in faster and more accurate contouring. Visicoil MR's linear flexible design fixates and remains stable in soft tissue, giving you the confidence in accurate marker localization. Visicoil MR is available in some of the smallest needle sizes available for fiducial markers, including 21g and 22g needles. The benefits of smaller needles are improved patient safety and comfort during implantation. The smaller needles may also allow for faster CT sim after implant and ultimately treatment for your patients. The new Visicoil MR with enhanced MRI visibility allows you to see the marker more easily in MRI, both in T1 and T2. This makes for easier and faster MR/CT fusion.

Resona 7 Premium Ultrasound System

The next generation of ZONE Sonography Technology (ZST) has arrived and its living technology continues to evolve. Leveraging ZONARE’s revolutionary ZST and Mindray’s rich repertoire of workflow and user interface features, the Resona 7 is poised to become the new industry leader in premium ultrasound imaging platforms. The Resona 7 presents crystal clear B-mode imaging capabilities with unrivaled detail resolution and image uniformity across all radiology applications. Ultrasensitive Doppler modes and high-speed digital signal processing permit accurate display of hemodynamic states from skin line to depths up to 40 cm without compromising frame rate. An intuitive, customizable gesture-powered touchscreen enables logical and efficient workflow and enhanced user experience.

At its core, ZST provides unique imaging advances for the Resona 7 such as Advanced Acoustic Acquisition which renders superb imaging by using large zones to acquire up to 90 percent more acoustic data per frame and at speeds of 10 times faster than conventional technology. Dynamic Pixel Focusing creates a perfectly focused image every pixel, every frame, in every patient and in every application. Sound Speed Compensation enables a one button touch that automatically calculates the true speed of sound in a specific soft tissue and recalibrates the imaging system to optimize spatial and contrast resolution.

Finally, ZST provides Total Recall Imaging which is powerful software that allows manipulation of raw acoustic data from archived and cine images (clips) permitting a broad range of post-processing functions. This eliminates the need for repeat scanning which, in turn, aids in increasing patient throughput.

ZST is a constantly evolving software-based “living technology.” It is Mindray’s approach to providing customers with easily upgradeable ultrasound enhancements. These upgrades secure product investment protection by ensuring that ZST systems remain at the cutting-edge of imaging performance excellence throughout the system’s entire life cycle.

In summary, coupling premium imaging with advanced workflow features and user-directed ergonomic design, the Resona 7 advances premium level ultrasound imaging into the next generation.
