Sonosite MicroMaxx Ultrasound Machine

  • Sonosite MicroMaxx Ultrasound Machine

The SonoSite MicroMaxx is a portable, software-controlled, ultrasound system using all-digital architecture. The system has multiple configurations and feature sets used to acquire and display high-resolution, real-time ultrasound images. The MicroMaxx has the following modes: 2D, color power Doppler (CPD), Color Doppler (Color), Tissue Harmonic Imaging (THI), M Mode, pulsed wave (PW) Doppler, and continuous wave (CW) Doppler. The system has cine buffer, pan zoom, labeling, biopsy, measurements, calculations, a connection for image transfer, image and clip storage, image review, printing, recording, the ability to archive Doppler with audio output to a videotape, and DICOM connectivity.
