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.

EIZO Celebrates 45 Years of Expertise

EIZO is proud to be entering into its 45th year of expertise, meeting hospital demands worldwide in over 80 countries. This year we are excited to unveil a few never-seen before, brand new products.

Our newest release is the RadiForce RX660, a 30-inch 6 megapixel monitor ideal for multi-modality applications. With this monitor we’re introducing the new “Work-and-Flow” that benefits radiologists today in creating an efficient and cleaner workspace.

With the Work-and-Flow, you have access to two great features:

The “Hide-and-Seek” function enables users to easily hide the Picture-in-Picture window eliminating the need for an extra monitor while still being able to access reports, patient charts, and other information.

In another feature called the “Switch-and-Go”, users can move across two workstations.

The RX660 uses the DisplayPort 1.2 Daisy Chain Connectivity for a tangle-free, easy, single cable management – this means eliminating excess wires.

Also new this year, is the RadiForce GX550, a 21.3-inch 5 megapixel, FDA approved-monitor for viewing detailed digital breast tomosynthesis and mammography images. Like the RX660, this monitor also features EIZO’s ergonomic design features.

In our CuratOR surgical solutions area, we are featuring two new products that complement our industry leading operating room video management system that allows quick access to multiple image sources and flexible arrangements across different monitors. Different workflow scenarios can be pre-defined and recalled on demand with the simple touch of a touchscreen.

Our EIZ1000 mobile large monitor tower is a turnkey large monitor mounting alternative to costly ceiling suspensions. Its sleek design and easy maneuverability enables use in multiple surgical suites. The EIZ1000 can be installed with little to no downtime, and is the optimum solution for hospitals that do not have the infrastructure to support complex ceiling suspension. 

We are also expanding our OR portfolio with the release our new line of CuratOR surgical panels. These digital viewing systems consist of one or more integrated monitors – as well as IT and video management components that function as the central console in the operating room. Integrated into the hospital’s IT structure, it is ideal for work performed by operating room or nursing staff.  

Finally, we are showing our CuratOR SP2-24-49 HIS/PACS configuration for viewing images and documentation. This configuration contains a 24-inch touchscreen and a 49-inch monitor forming a space-saving combination of HIS and PACS station. Different applications are covered by just one device. The polished and sealed design allows for easy cleaning.

Conserus Workflow Intelligence From McKesson Helps Improve Quality and Efficiency

A value based care mindset calls for a value based care toolset. Conserus Workflow Intelligence helps radiologists demonstrate their value to the rest of the enterprise. It’s a rules engine that helps you get information and tasks to the right people at the right time. With this automated solution in place, you can match demand to supply and use your available resources and talents most effectively.

This solution is flexible, configurable and vendor-neutral. It consolidates a radiologist’s entire set of everyday tasks into a dynamic worklist and uses up to 99 levels of priority to determine which ones should be read first. The user interface is color coded so users can easily see which studies are the most urgent. It’s also dynamic, so a study’s priority level automatically adjusts and it moves to the top of the list as it becomes more urgent. It can even be configured to send alerts if studies aren’t read within your defined time period. It helps you close communication loops between departments and facilities

Whether your healthcare system involves one facility with a single PACS, or is a complex, distributed environment, Conserus Workflow Intelligence can help you make impactful, measurable improvements in areas like turnaround times and case prioritization. And once you’ve measured your progress, you can easily reconfigure your rules so your workflows can get more efficient.

Conserus Workflow Intelligence helps you improve quality and efficiency, all within your regular PACS workflow. To learn more about how it can help you improve communication and turnaround times in your health system, watch this brief video.
