  • Ports for two ultrasound probes
  • One-button image optimization capabilities

Description

SonoScape S8 Ultrasound

The SonoScape S8 is a complete full-body ultrasound machine that has more features than any other in its price range. For less than the cost of a used ultrasound machine with similar functionality, you can buy a new SonoScape S8 with a 2-year warranty, excellent image quality, and extreme versatility.

It is a fully shared-service portable ultrasound machine with a full array of applications and probes. The features and capabilities found on the SonoScape S8 are typically only found on full-size console machines.

For image quality, the SonoScape S8 employs the latest image optimization technologies, such as speckle reduction, compound imaging, tissue harmonics, Automatic optimization, and panoramic imaging.

For 4D imaging, the SonoScape S8 serves as an excellent budget 4D portable ultrasound machine, although those seeking to perform solely 4D ultrasound imaging, they may want to consider a higher-end 4D ultrasound machine that is built specifically for 4D imaging.

Expert Review:

The SonoScape S8 ultrasound is one of the best price/performance deals on the ultrasound market today. 

It impressed us with its image quality and has quickly become a top-seller and customer-loved product at Providian Medical. It creates a solution for many practices that can’t find a good full-body ultrasound for a reasonable cost. The SonoScape S8 truly is a breakthrough for versatility, size, price and performance in a portable ultrasound machine.

We are particularly surprised to find how many different applications and transducers were available on the SonoScape S8. From Urology to Cardiology, it has the transducers and packages to perform nearly every ultrasound exam. Additionally, the 4D real-time 3D imaging has good image quality.
