Sonosite M Turbo Ultrasound Machine

  • Sonosite M Turbo Ultrasound Machine

The Sonosite M Turbo, this ultrasound system is a versatile, digital, and software-controlled device.

This portable and innovative system has numerous configurations and features sets used to obtain and display real-time, high-resolution ultrasound images used for abdominal, nerve, superficial, vascular, cardiac, venous access, and pelvic views. However used, the SonoSite M-Turbo can optimize the image resolution for high-quality exams. With its clear and sharp contrast, the M Turbos is known for its image quality. These features improve the visual detail to help differentiate structures, vessels, and pathology.

The M-Turbo Ultrasound has been optimized for real-world environmental challenges. Using its increased processing power the user can get high-quality images for up to 60-seconds. This Ultrasound has a quick boot-up time, backlit keyboard, and is lightweight. It can be carried on site which is ideal for a variety of ultrasound applications. Even though the M Turbo is a portable laptop ultrasound, it has a 2-hour battery life, depending on the imaging mode and display brightness. The system makes data management easy with a streamlined user-friendly design. It has 2 high-speed USB ports and is Mac and PC friendly.
