Mindray, Mahway, N.J., announced the launch of its ME8 Ultrasound System. With a weight and thickness of just 6.6 pounds and 1.7 inches, respectively, the ME8 System’s main unit is one of the lightest and thinnest laptop-based machines in the industry, according to the company. In addition, this compact, durable, and powerful system houses advanced software and hardware built to maximize performance in all applications.

“Since its founding, Mindray has been dedicated to developing innovative and accessible ultrasound solutions for the point of care environment,” says Wayne Quinn, president of Mindray North America. “Given the continuous evolution of the healthcare industry as a whole, and the ongoing fight against COVID-19, we are proud to be able to provide state-of-the-art solutions like the ME8 that address the pressing challenges of today, while supporting our partners’ long-term goals.”

The ME8 Ultrasound System has been thoughtfully designed to overcome the obstacles clinicians face in today’s challenging healthcare environments. With a sealed user interface for ease of cleaning and disinfection and software-based Zone Sonography Technology+, the ME8 Ultrasound System combines best-in-class image quality with an intuitive and customizable user experience to help ensure reliable and efficient diagnosis during the most challenging exams.

Using AI-powered smart tools (Smart B-Line, Smart VTI, Smart IVC), this portable ultrasound system can help assess volume status and fluid responsiveness in critically ill patients. With groundbreaking technologies like eSpacial Navi and iNeedle+, the ME8 offers the most advanced suite of needle guidance and enhancement technologies. Additionally, when used with the U-bank, the ystem provides up to eight hours of battery life, allowing for all-day scanning.

“As point of care ultrasound continues to break through barriers in a variety of clinical settings, it is our responsibility here at Mindray to continue to push ultrasound technology forward,” says Maher Elhihi, director of marketing, Ultrasound. “At the end of the day, our goal is to provide greater access to leading-edge imaging technologies that enable better patient care, and we are confident that the ME8 System addresses these evolving needs.”
