Mindray recently featured a new upgrade for its premium Resona 7 ultrasound system at the Radiological Society of North America annual conference. The new upgrade is based on the system’s core ZONE Sonography Technology (ZST+), which enables software upgrades for new applications such as contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), Sound Touch shear wave elastography and 10 new transducer options. Other imaging, software, and calculation enhancements include fetal CNS “Smart Planes,” “Smart Pelvis” and a dedicated pelvic congestion syndrome package. The new transducers include C6-2GU interventional/intraoperative; C11-3U microconvex; P10-4U and P7-3U phased pediatric cardiac; P7-3TU adult transesophageal; L16-4HU; SC6-1U and DE10-3WU (3D). There are also two new CW transducers, CW2S and CW5S, for the support of shared service. The new upgrade is expected to be available to Resona 7 customers early next year.
