Mindray has introduced a new premium compact ultrasound system at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) annual meeting in Chicago, October 27-30, 2014. The M9 point-of-care ultrasound system includes broad general imaging and cardiac applications for use in a fast-paced emergency department setting.

“Mindray is already a leader in point-of-care ultrasound solutions, but the introduction of the M9 responds to the demands of physicians at the most challenging points, in the emergency department and critical care,” said George Solomon, president of Mindray North America. “The integrated package with its premium image quality has received very positive feedback from physicians, as it helps ensure diagnostic confidence while also containing costs.”

The system’s single crystal transducer with 3T technology is designed to provide deeper penetration and sharper image quality while improving cardiac tissue tracking for real-time quantitative assessment of myocardial function. A 7-second start-up time and more than 3 hours of battery life, combined with a narrow ergonomic cart, help enable enhanced mobility for bringing service directly to the patient. Additional features include Echo Boost cardiac image optimization, High Dynamic Range color flow Doppler, and a 15.6-inch, high-resolution HD monitor.
