How are ZST+ Powered Ultrasound Machines Superior to Other Diagnostic Imaging Systems?


What can an ultrasound machine exam detect?


ZONE Sonography® Technology Plus
ZST+ is the most premium and innovative ultrasound platform, evolving with powerful processing architecture and enhanced channel data processing based on ZONE Sonography*. It is:
"The next industry-standard method of generating ultrasound images. Two generations ahead of traditional digital beam formation technology" - Frost&Sullivan Research Report, November 2011


Core Technology

The channel data-based ZST+ is an extraordinary innovation, representing an ultrasound evolution. Transforming ultrasound metrics from conventional beamforming to channel data-based processing, ZST+ is more powerful and flexible to integrate the latest innovative OB/GYN imaging technologies and deliver a higher level of imaging performance in 2D, 3D/4D, and even the coronal plane image.


Core Technology of ZST+
New Waves of Ultrasound Innovation
Besides the userfriendly ergonomic features, the Mindray difference from all other competitors is the unique, innovative, software-based next-generation technology ZST Plus Platform. The outdated line-by-line technology of conventional ultrasound systems is slow and inefficient with suboptimal imaging quality that´s limited by hardware components. Mindray's unique patented Zone Sonography Technology PlusTM (ZST+) is the future industrial estate in ultrasound imaging since it overcomes many limitations of traditional, digital Beamformerprocess.

Key Features

The powerful platform of ZST+ enables advanced features for both daily practice and clinical research purposes. It covers various applications, including Radiology, Vascular assessment, and OB/GYN, which offers more tools for physicians to make confident diagnoses. Tools like V Flow, Fusion Imaging, RIMT, and CEUS are making the differences between other systems and ZST+ powered machines.


ZONE Intelligence

Thanks to the innovative, software-driven ZST+ platform, Mindray ultrasounds are continuously evolving with the leading-edge technologies to meet the most challenging diagnostic demands. More importantly,it is designed with the understanding that the wisdom of experts is always precious, and you need a more intelligent partner for enhanced speed and confidence.


The Core Benefits of the Zone Sonography Plus Platform are:

Software-based image former. Modular Ultrasound, fast start of system, easy and flexible updates.

Zone Acquisition in 1/10 of time compared to conventional beamformers. Reduction of motion artifacts, improved temporal resolution, and high contrast resolution. No physical focus to adjust.

Calibration on Patient by Sound Speed Compensation.  Improved contrast and lateral resolution. Excellent image uniformity.


Transforming ultrasound metrics from conventional beamforming to channel data-based processing, ZST+ is able to deliver multiple imaging advances: Advanced Acoustic Acquisition, Dynamic Pixel Focusing, Sound Speed Compensation, Advanced Image Processing, and Total Recall Imaging.

Advanced Acoustic Acquisition
By transmitting and receiving a relatively smaller number of large zones, Advanced Acoustic Acquisition extracts more information from each acquisition, 10 times faster than a conventional line-by-line beamforming method.

Dynamic Pixel Focusing
Dynamic Pixel Focusing technology allows Mindray ultrasounds like the MX7 and Resona 7 to achieve extreme uniformity in pixel level through the whole field of view. Therefore, there is no longer the need to frequently adjust the focal positions to achieve uniformity across patient exams.

Advanced Image Processing
By multiple and retrospective channel data processing, it makes the best use of acoustic information for image improvement.
HD Scope: higher definition image within ROI.
Coherent Spatial Synthesis: further improved image quality.


Total Recall Imaging
As ZST+ captures and stores the complete acoustic raw data set, Total Recall Imaging allows the user to retrospectively
modify numerous imaging parameters and optimize clinical information.
