Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. is partnering with 7Dimaging to offer the mskNAV Education Tool. According to Konica Minolta officials, mskNAV is a portable, tablet-based educational resource that helps users enhance their ultrasound scanning skills in musculoskeletal (MSK) procedures. Konica Minolta is also providing on-site training and education in the area of MSK ultrasound.

The partnership allows Konica Minolta to distribute 7Dimaging’s mskNAV interactive ultrasound training software with its portfolio of ultrasound products. The mskNAV education tool will complement the educational continuum already offered by the company for physicians to perform confident examinations and ultrasound-guided injections.

“Konica Minolta is excited to be partnering with 7Dimaging to deliver such a well-developed educational tool to enhance the learning process for physicians adopting ultrasound into their practices,” says Brian Noyes, senior vice president and general manager of Konica Minolta’s ultrasound division. “The feedback we’ve received from physicians on the mskNAV software has been overwhelmingly positive and Konica Minolta recognizes the importance of delivering top-notch educational resources in addition to our portfolio of ultrasound systems.”

7Dimaging CEO Cliff Gronseth, MD, also spoke out about the partnership, commenting: “7Dimaging appreciates Konica Minolta’s drive to bring high-quality MSK ultrasound education to its customers,” adds. “MSK ultrasound can be easy to master if you have the right tools. Our accelerated learning system and Konica Minolta’s easy-to-use ultrasound systems make a powerful combination.”
