Konica Minolta · United imaging Healthcare participated in '34th Korea International Medical & Hospital Equipment Show (KIMES 2018)' at COEX from March 15 to 18 and showed off innovative medical devices.
Quick-DIP by Konica Minolta is a bone density measuring system using CR and DR that has improved accuracy by using bone density measurements and analysis data from 100,000 Asian people in a clinical trial for a decade. Inspection and diagnosis results may be verified within 10 seconds. It is easy to operate and can be used without professional knowledge. It also saves space because it does not require an exclusive use of BMD devices. If it has existing X-ray equipment, it is also economical to check bone density.

'SONIMAGE HS1', the ultrasonic image diagnosis device is based on the 150-year technique and know-how of Konica. As of 2016, it took 52 percent of the Japanese musculoskeletal system ultrasonic market. The touchscreen's innovative design and compact body enable medical care in all environments, and its simple needle visualization (SNV) feature makes the needle look blue so that it makes needle visible when diagnosis. In particular, the combination of probe technology and unique imaging techniques provides clear picture quality with high contrast and spatial resolution in the high frequency area.
