Konica Minolta Healthcare has entered into a partnership with Mindray to bring exclusive musculoskeletal (MSK) portable ultrasound solutions to the market. Such a deal is in line with Konica Minolta’s commitment to providing physicians with technologies that assist with more accurate assessment and treatments of musculoskeletal ailments, company officials say.

“The unique relationship with Mindray further underscores Konica Minolta’s commitment to being a market leader in MSK ultrasound,” says Brian Noyes, senior vice president and general manager of Konica Minolta’s ultrasound division. “Mindray’s dedication to improving patient care complements Konica Minolta’s cutting-edge technologies and award-winning customer satisfaction.”

Glen McLaughlin, chief product officer of Mindray Ultrasound, also spoke out about the deal, commenting: “It’s important to place excellent technology in the hands of MSK experts who can support orthopedists, sports medicine physicians, rheumatologists, podiatrists, and beyond.” He adds: “Konica Minolta has extensive experience in this field and is a longstanding provider of MSK solutions to this group of specialists.”

The partnership with Mindray addresses the need for cutting-edge ultrasound technology in out-of-hospital settings like MSK, and demonstrates Konica Minolta’s commitment to develop strategic relationships, Noyes points out. “By working together, industry experts bring value to musculoskeletal providers by giving them the best tools at the point of care,” he says.
