  • Mobility

Clinical Benefits through Innovation

Through the most innovative technological solutions implemented in this compact ultrasound system, we would like to highlight 3THI (Triad Tissue Harmonic Imaging) and real 18 MHz imaging, supported by Konica Minolta’s Micro Multiple Matching Layer Technology. This technological combination, unique in this class of systems, guarantees an extraordinary image clarity and resolution through the whole picture, from shallow to deeper areas.

The innovative approach of its user interface, combining the advantages of a simplified console (with the most frequently used functions always at reach) and the Touch screen technology implemented on its 15” IPS LCD monitor, make Sonimage HS1’s premium performance easily accessible for a large variety of ultrasound users; from general practitioners to MSK specialists, from hospital departments to private praxes.

SNV Simple Needle Visualization

We care about operators’ confidence during interventional procedures and have developed the Simple Needle Visualization (SNV) technology. SNV is an extraordinary tool that, without any loss in the B mode image quality, highlights the visibility of the needle shaft and tip.

  • Dedicated solution for interventional procedures
  • Enhances the needle on the ultrasound image, so you can see it more clearly
  • Supports both in-plane and out-of-plane procedures

Seeing the needle tip clearly enables safer and more efficient procedures

Rheumatoid Arthritis Workflow

Based on the DAS28 protocol, Konica Minolta has implemented the Rheumatoid Arthritis Workflow: the unique integrated software tool supporting rheumatologists for clear and thorough ultrasound-based assessments.

Made in Japan

Sonimage HS1 and its state-of-the-art transducers are proudly designed and manufactured by Konica Minolta in Japan. We continuously strive to develop cutting-edge technologies and realize our mission of providing you with the highest performance and reliability.
