Portable SonoSite M-Turbo

Portable SonoSite M-Turbo Ultrasound

See How Versatile Ultrasound Can Be

The SonoSite M-Turbo portable ultrasound is SonoSite’s nost versatile system for abdominal, nerve, vascular, cardiac, venous access, pelvic, and superficial imaging. The M-Turbo ultrasound tool comes with SonoGT and SonoHD imaging technology, enhanced color flow, optional SonoRemote control.

The M-Turbo has 16x the processing power of our previous generation and still weighs under 7 pounds. As always, it comes with an unparalleled 5-year warranty.

Below is a generalized description of this systems technology, specifications, features, and options. The below may not reflect the features and options available on units in our inventory.

SonoGT™ Global Targeted Technology
SonoGT™ Global Targeted technology, an advance that capitalizes on the power of the M-Turbo platform to drive a new level of color flow imaging, wireless connectivity and workflow integration for anesthesia, emergency medicine, critical care, and other acute point-of-care markets.
ColorHD Technology
ColorHD Technology – A proprietary, color Doppler algorithm available on all transducers, ColorHD™ technology works in parallel with multiple M-Turbo algorithms, including SonoHD™ imaging technology, to provide increased diagnostic information and better visualization of color flow, particularly in low flow states.
SonoRoam Technology
An option using 802.11b/g technology, SonoRoam™ technology enables wireless image transfer from the M-Turbo system to a PACS system via DICOM® and to a personal computer via SonoSite’s SiteLink™ so that clinicians can quickly retrieve the information from any location.
