Konica Minolta Launches New Handheld Ultrasound Device


Optimized for musculoskeletal assessment, needle guidance and vascular access, the PocketPro H2 wireless ultrasound unit reportedly provides 90 minutes of high-quality continuous scanning for point-of-care applications.

Combining ease of use features, strong compatibility with existing systems and robust image quality, Konica Minolta has launched the handheld, wireless ultrasound device PocketPro H2.

The ultrasound device reportedly facilitates rapid soft tissue assessment of ligaments, muscles, cartilage, inflammation, and joint instability, according to Konica Minolta. The company said clinicians can also employ the PocketPro H2 ultrasound for vascular access and needle guidance applications.

In addition to color and pulsed-wave Doppler capabilities and M-Mode functions, the PocketPro H2 offers an ergonomic design and customized imaging presets that promote ease of use.

The company noted a downloadable app allows wireless connection of the PocketPro H2 to the majority of iOS and Android smart devices and viewing of images at the point of care. Fully DICOM-compatible, the PocketPro H2 can also be linked to any PACS platform, according to Konica Minolta.

“Ultrasound has been called the new stethoscope of the 21st century and this advanced, wireless handheld unit helps clinicians do more with ultrasound at the point of care,” noted Joan Toth, a senior product marketing manager of ultrasound at Konica Minolta Healthcare.
