Hitachi HI VISION 8500 Ultrasound System

Powerful, flexible and fast, the HI VISION™ 8500 diagnostic ultrasound scanner combines leading edge technologies with user-oriented operation for exceptional imaging and functionality. The integrated SONO MR package consists of advanced techniques for image enhancement and control, including HI COMPOUND multi-angle spatial compounding, Wideband Pulse Inversion, tissue harmonics, HI RES adaptive imaging technology and Raw Data Freeze. These features can be selected separately or in various combinations to optimize B-mode, Color and Doppler images.

The Hi Vision 8500 also offers Sono IQ one-touch image optimization, real-time archiving with on-the-fly recording, a DVD rewriteable drive making even large dynamic clips manageable, and SonoElastography. Available exclusively on the HI VISION 8500, SonoElastography provides a completely new perspective on the physical properties of tumors and masses by determining and displaying the relative stiffness of tissue.

With leading edge features and options, including a wide variety of specialty and application-specific transducers, the HI VISION 8500 can be tailored to meet almost any clinical requirement.
