Finding the Right Device for Ultrasound Diagnostics
Choosing the most suitable system for performing ultrasound scans at medical practices isn't always easy. When purchasing a new ultrasound scanner various aspects need to be considered. It is important to take into account which organs and tissues are going to be examined with the ultrasound machine as not every sonography device is suitable for every type of examination.
The number of transducer slots and the availability of specific ultrasound transducers, such as vaginal probes or linear probes, are important factors to consider. Furthermore, before purchasing an ultrasound device one should think about whether the device is for stationary or mobile use. In addition to classic mobile ultrasound scanners with integrated carrying handles, such as the Mindray DP-10, you can now buy extremely small, portable ultrasound machines that can be connected to a smartphone or tablet.
New and Modern: Portable, Wireless Ultrasound Devices
Handheld ultrasound machines are particularly convenient for use in the emergency services or on home visits. These light-weight and practical ultrasound systems can be connected to a smartphone or tablet and offer great flexibility.
We stock the Portable Ultrasound Machine "SonoEye" which is an especially affordable model. It is available with either a linear, convex or phased array transducer, depending on the main clinical application. Alternatively, you can purchase the "Youkey Q7" which is the most high-end device among the mobile ultrasound systems that we offer. This waterproof ultrasound device is optionally available as a black & white or colour ultrasound system and offers maximum versatility thanks to the exchangeable ultrasound heads.
Tips for Buying a Sonography Device
- An alphanumeric keyboard saves time when entering patient data
- Backlit keyboards make it easier to work in darkened rooms
- Units with multiple transducer slots are particularly practical when different examinations are to be performed in succession
- Quick keys are practical and save preparation time during ultrasound examinations
- Check the availability of compatible accessories (additional transducers, compatible printers, equipment trolleys, etc.)
Sonography Devices in Comparison
Once you have decided on a device class (wireless, mobile or stationary) it makes sense to compare similar diagnostic devices. Features such as the picture quality of the ultrasound images, user guidance, the availability of compatible accessories, and the price should be taken into account.
Additional functions, such as an integrated colour Dopplers, an image storage system, measurement software or a zoom function, can also aid in decision-making. After all, different attributes are needed depending on the medical speciality. For example, an angiology or cardiology practice is more likely to opt for a sonography device that includes an integrated colour Doppler, while for internal medicine reliable measurement software is particualrly important.
