Take a closer look at SonoSite’s new edge Ultrasound System

The Edge® ultrasound system is SonoSite’s fifth generation of point-of-care ultrasound. The screen is noticeably larger so you can see the ultrasound image from across the patient or across the room. Enhanced image quality aids your diagnostic confidence. Rapid boot-up takes you from power-on to scanning in less than 20 seconds. A magnesium shell with a solid aluminium core drop-tested at 91.4 cm/3 feet helps to protect your investment for the long term. And a splash resistant silicone keyboard makes cleaning and disinfecting that much easier. With the Edge ultrasound system, you have access to a new generation of point-of-care visualisation.

Edge Technology from SonoSite
SonoHD2™ Second Generation Imaging Technology – provides a new series of image enhancement algorithms that reduce speckle noise and image artifacts to give the Edge ultrasound tool a new standard in point-of-care visualisation image quality.
SonoADAPT™ Tissue Optimisation – eliminating complicated manipulation of multiple controls.
SonoMB® Multi-beam Imaging – increasing resolution of small structures and enhancing border delineation.
Advanced Needle Visualisation – aiding needle visualisation while maintaining striking image quality of the target and surrounding anatomy.
ColorHD™ Technology – increasing colour performance, sensitivity and frame rates for more diagnostic information.
