to be held during

.(RSNA Booth: 7235, North Hall). The DC-8 v1.5 enhancements are designed to increase system performance in a wide variety of diagnostic imaging clinical applications.
"Mindray continues to innovate and provide unsurpassed economic value to our customers," said
, Vice President of Ultrasound Sales, Mindray North America. "The v1.5 release expands the DC-8's ability to simplify and enhance the clinical experience with easier image acquisition and superior image quality. Focusing on advances in 3D and general imaging capabilities, we believe the DC-8 system has the potential to improve patient management, increase ease of use, and enhance users' overall level of confidence."
One of the new enhancements to the DC-8 ultrasound system is the Multi-Slice feature, which allows the display of multiple 2D images, derived from one 3D volume data set, on one page for easy viewing. This improves 3D image analysis and creates a similar workflow to traditional review of CT exams. In addition, iPage allows users to view slices on any reference point on a 3D plane.
Not only does the DC-8 now support measurements on 3D MPR images and 3D color, it also uses Mindray's Multi-Beam Parallel Imaging Technology™, which integrates advanced imaging technologies to produce optimized images with minimal user involvement. When combined with the system's echo-enriched beamformer, the DC-8 produces excellent images. Its ergonomic solutions address every part of the user's body that interacts with the device, improving procedural efficiency and reducing repetitive actions. A new user interface enables logical and efficient workflow while ensuring a more convenient operation. For example, iWorks is a powerful protocol management system beneficial for an experienced sonographer, a student or visiting physician, allowing the user to focus on the patient and spend less time on operational steps and keystrokes.
