The Mindray Vetus 50 veterinary ultrasound machine is a game-changer for entry-level color Doppler imaging in veterinary medicine. In our expert review, we highlight the features, benefits, and applications that make the Mindray Vetus 50 stands out as a top contender for veterinary systems in 2024.


High-quality imaging starting at the foundation:

The Vetus 50 includes Mindray's famous ZST+ platform. Shifting from traditional beamforming to channel data-based processing, the ZST+ platform paves the way for exceptional image quality across all veterinary imaging solutions. In conventional beam-forming technology, acoustic data is gathered line by line and then concentrated using a digital beamformer, utilizing only a fraction of the available data. However, with ZST+, a larger portion of the returning acoustic data set is captured and employed. This innovation brings several advantages, including expedited image processing which means significantly enhanced temporal resolution. Additionally, it ensures uniformity in image quality across the entire field of view, alongside improved spatial and contrast resolution. These advancements in imaging technology translate to superior-quality images and ultimately contribute to better diagnostic outcomes for your patients. In addition, the Vetus 50 includes ComboWave transducers with 3T technology. Mindray's special transducer technology utilizes a new type of composite piezoelectric material to optimize the acoustic spectrum while reducing acoustic interference. Overall, this technology allows for better image resolution and uniformity.
