  • Improved Workflow
  • MSK presets linked to anatomical structures are optimized when depth is adjusted

Voice Control

Voice activation of the SONIMAGE® HS1 Ultrasound System allows for handsfree operation during interventional procedures

  • Simple and accurate voice activation
  • Handsfree system operation
  • No need to break the sterile field
  • Focus more on the patient
  • Enhance diagnostic efficiency

The HS1 System voice control operation feature fosters user comfort and proper operator ergonomics at the point-of-care.

Panoramic View

Panoramic view is an imaging process that produces a panoramic image that provides both qualitative and quantitative information. Panoramic imaging stitches a series of images to give one long image in order to:

  • Assess larger lesions
  • Construct a cross-section image of a structure
  • Show the relationship of two structures in a single image

Panoramic imaging technology widens the field of view for precise clinical diagnosis and interventional procedures.
