Konica Minolta Medical Imaging and SonoSim Partner to Deliver Ultrasound Training for SONIMAGE P3
Wayne, NJ, July 10, 2014 – Konica Minolta Medical Imaging, a world-class provider and market leader in medical diagnostic Primary Imaging Solutions, announced today a partnership with SonoSim to provide an integrated ultrasound training solution for the SONIMAGE P3 hand-held ultrasound system. The SONIMAGE P3 brings advanced imaging capabilities to a patient’s bedside. It lets clinicians rapidly assess patients with sonography and make accurate, and cost-efficient diagnoses.
The SonoSim® Ultrasound Training Solution makes learning point-of-care ultrasonography easy and affordable for physicians, nurses, and students. It also enables educators to provide consistent and uniform training. SonoSim trains users to utilize their personal ultrasound machines for real-time patient diagnosis at the point of care—in triage situations, outpatient/office, or on any hospital bed floor. SonoSim can be easily used anytime-anywhere to enhance ultrasound learning, benefiting any clinician who may utilize the SONIMAGE P3 hand-held ultrasound device.
“Konica Minolta Medical Imaging is committed to providing innovative Primary Imaging Solutions that help enhance clinical confidence at the point of care,” says Diane Hunt, Vice President of Marketing, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging. “Our hand-held SONIMAGE P3 ultrasound is designed to be carried by a clinician—much like a stethoscope—and users may include primary care physicians, nurses, and other non- radiology professionals. Our partnership with SonoSim will provide an educational and
training forum for all types of clinicians, so they can efficiently utilize this point-of-care device to enhance patient diagnosis.”
“SonoSim is committed to supporting the increasing adoption of ultrasonography to help reduce costs and improve patient outcomes,” said Derek McLeish, President SonoSim International. “We are pleased to be working with Konica Minolta Medical Imaging to train clinicians and support this effort.”
