Official global unveiling of the industry\'s most-advanced laptop-style Doppler system
At the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna last week, Mindray launched the M9, its premium-level portable ultrasound system.
ECR 2014 president, Professor Valentin Sinitsyn, unveiled the M9 to a large audience at the congress, representing the official global launch of the industry’s most-advanced laptop-style Doppler system.
Commenting on the launch, Sarah Li, general manager of Mindray’s ultrasound business unit, said: “The M9 is based on a completely new and highly-innovative platform, including its advanced CPU hardware, its multi-channel HDR flow signal processing with improved transmission, and its faster calculations and enhanced control. Furthermore, Mindray’s patented 3T technology is now more powerful than ever in the M9 thanks to a single crystal which enables deeper penetration and enhances the diagnostic experience.”
Proving that users no longer need to sacrifice performance for portability, the M9 combines advanced features formerly only found in heavy cart-based systems. Despite its compact size, the M9 boasts technologies such as Echo-Boost, LVO with Stress Echocardiography, TTQA, UWN+ contrast imaging and Natural touch elastography. The M9 has the added advantage of providing all these features at the bedside, making it an ideal shared-service solution for use within multiple clinical settings.
The M9’s ergonomic profile provides user comfort and improved procedural efficiency while reducing repetitive actions. A user-centric interface including a 15-inch LED high-definition monitor and integrated adjustable-height trolley enables logical and efficient workflow ensuring the most-convenient operation.
For cardiologists, the M9’s premium capabilities enable LVO (left ventricular opacification) with stress (exercise- or pharmacologicaly-induced) echocardiography. This enhances the discrimination between myocardial tissue and blood pool, providing better visualisation of the endocardial surface. The Stress Echo package is supported by a flexible reporting system that can be optimised for individual needs. M9’s portability makes it an ideal solution for ventilated patients in intensive care because of patient positioning and compliance.
David Yin, Mindray international general manager, who was present at the launch, said, “We were honoured to have ECR president unveiling our M9 portable ultrasound. Rich in innovation, the M9 addresses the most-critical issues faced within ultrasound scanning and shows how Mindray’s technologies can raise industry standards to a whole new level.”
