Product Features


Sonimage HS1 is Konica Minolta’s Powerful and Portable Ultrasound System.

Thanks to its state of the art platform and its innovative interface concept, Sonimage HS1 is a true Premium point-of-care system with intuitive approach; the ideal imaging solution for the most demanding clinical environments.

Premium Portable Ultrasound

Image quality means clear identification of the sonoanatomy and higher diagnostic confidence for you; this is why the highest image quality is always the first priority in Konica Minolta’s products.

Thanks to the advanced technological solutions implemented in the main unit and the transducers, Sonimage HS1 delivers best-in-class image quality on its large high-performance IPS LCD monitor.

3THI Triad Tissue Harmonic Imaging

Sonimage HS1 implements the technology for transmission and reception of information based on the maximum use of bandwidth of the ultra-broadband transducers.

By utilizing the transmission of more than one frequency component after synthetizing them, Sonimage HS1 delivers premium quality of the entire image, from the superficial to the deeper areas.  



Konica Minolta's Transducers

Sonimage HS1 transducers are proudly designed and manufactured by Konica Minolta in Japan. 

Thanks to our specific know-how in probes development, Konica Minolta's Ultra-Broadband transducers deliver clear and high resolution images in both superficial and deeper regions together with enhanced Doppler sensitivity. 

 High sensitivity and broadband transducers

  • Low attenuation acoustic lens
  • Multi-layered accoustic matching layer
  • Micro processing technology

Real Ease of Use

Operating Sonimage HS1 is really easy due to its intuitive user interface, which combines the advantage of the touchscreen technology with a simplified console, with only eight physical buttons and an integrated trackball. 

This way all the commands and functions are always easy to identify and quickly accessible. 

Thanks to this innovative concept you will immediately feel confident working with the system, speeding up the integration of  this premium imaging solution in your daily practice.



Quick Access

Point-of-Care enviroments require a reliable imaging solution that can be promptly operated at the patient's side. Due to its compact design and integrated battery, Sonimage HS1 can easily be carried to the point of care and is ready for use in less than 15 seconds.

Sonimage HS1 provides premium ultrasound support anywhere, anytime.

  • Portable solution with integrated battery
  • Boot-up in less than 15 seconds from standby
  • Mobile solution on cart with up to three probe connectors



Simple Needle Visualization


Konica Minolta cares about operators’ confidence during interventional procedures and has developed the Simple Needle Visualization (SNV) technology. SNV is an extraordinary tool that, without any loss in the B mode image quality, highlights the visibility of the needle shaft and tip.

  • Dedicated solution for interventional procedures
  • Enhances the needle on the ultrasound image, so you can see it more clearly
  • Supports both in-plane and out-of-plane procedures



Rheumatoid Arthritis Workflow


Based on the DAS28 protocol, Konica Minolta has implemented the Rheumatoid Arthritis Workflow, integrated in Sonimage HS1: a unique tool supporting rheumatologists for clear and thorough ultrasound-based assessments.

  • Supports the examination via dedicated protocol for Rheuma
  • Provides quick and clear overview within the examined joints
  • Helps and speeds up the workflow thanks to dedicated and automatic annotations


Strain Elastography is an advanced real-time qualitative imaging method displaying the relative stiffness of tissues. Next to the premium B-mode image and high-sensitivity Doppler standard delivered by Sonimage HS1, Elastography is an additional powerful tool providing further clinical information, in the assessment of soft tissues and superficial lesions.

Made in Japan
