The New York School of Regional Anesthesia has selected Konica Minolta’s Sonimage HS1 as the exclusive ultrasound system for its workshops on anesthesia and pain management. Providing training and education to more than 1,000 physicians each year in the United States and throughout the globe, the New York School of Regional Anesthesia focuses on regional anesthesia, pain management, and perioperative medicine.

Delivering the performance of a high-end ultrasound unit in a hand-carried system, the Sonimage HS1 is a point-of-care system for exams captured at the bedside and in the exam room. The Sonimage HS1 provides enhanced visualization for guidance during therapeutic procedures such as pain management, and its broad frequency linear probe is suitable for deep and superficial structures alike.

“[New York School of Regional Anesthesia] chose the Konica Minolta Sonimage HS1 ultrasound system over other competitive systems because of its image quality and streamlined workflow,” says Joan Toth, senior product marketing manager at Konica Minolta. “The long-term investment in Konica Minolta ultrasound further validates the quality of our system and the growth of our ultrasound division as a major segment within the medical imaging market.”

Explaining further, Admir Hadzic, MD, PhD, director of the New York School of Regional Anesthesia, says: “The Konica Minolta ultrasound system provides everything a clinician needs. It’s highly accurate, provides outstanding image quality, is convenient to use, and has a small footprint in the perioperative point-of-care applications. To fulfill our educational requirements, we needed high-quality, transportable, and cost-effective equipment that also provides excellent image quality, and that’s the Sonimage HS1.”
