See more clearly
The HS1 System, with enhanced signal penetration, increased color flow sensitivity, and improved resolution, is capable of detailed tissue differentiation, detecting structures as small as several hundred microns.
The UltraAdjust image optimization feature allows you to change imaging parameters by simply adjusting depth. Various imaging parameters such as trapezoid setting, contrast enhancements, SI filter and focus position are automatically optimized “with the touch of the depth button”.
- Improve your workflow
- MSK presets linked to anatomical structures are optimized when depth is adjusted
Enjoy the ease of handsfree
Voice activation of the SONIMAGE® HS1 Ultrasound System allows you to operate handsfree 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
Increasing your comfort, the HS1 System voice control operation features proper operator ergonomics at the point-of-care.
Panoramic view is an imaging process that produces an image that provides both qualitative and quantitative information. Panoramic imaging stitches a series of images to give you 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.
Assess changes easily
Strain Elastography is a real-time qualitative and quantitative imaging software feature that calculates and displays the relative stiffness of tissue. The image is generated from strain generated by uniform pressure of the transducer on the tissue. You can use elastography to visibly assess changes in tendon and ligament elasticity.
Deep and superficial scanning
Unique nanofabrication technology combines both material and machining expertise to produce the SONIMAGE HS1 L18-4 linear transducer. This broad frequency linear probe offers both high sensitivity as well as greater penetration, allowing you to scan both deep and superficial joints and structures.
Access difficult areas
The HL18-4 hockey stick linear transducer for musculoskeletal (MSK) and pain management applications reaches difficult to access areas easily with its small footprint and maneuverability. You can evaluate joints in the fingers and ankle more readily with the probe’s angulation, improved control and greater contact with the anatomy. The high frequency probe provides excellent resolution in the near field for tissue differentiation and visualizes color flow with outstanding Doppler sensitivity.
Increased needle visibility and accuracy
The SONIMAGE HS1 Simple Needle Visualization (SNV®) feature incorporates an advanced algorithm that utilizes both the in-plane and out-of-plane methods to improve needle visibility, especially in steep angle approaches. The resulting clarity of the needle, both tip and shaft, enables increased accuracy in needle placement, making the portable ultrasound system an ideal solution for pain management guided injections.
Track and organize ultrasound images efficiently with the SONIMAGE HS1 Rheumatology report package. Still images, along with real time clips, can be stored and assigned to each joint. The RA protocol is integrated and customizable. It can be operated from a foot switch allowing you to move rapidly through the exam without taking your hands from the probe.
