The RS80 looks and acts like a premium machine, but its price is surprisingly low.
As far as bargains go for radiology ultrasound, this is an excellent option. Samsung has grown tremendously over the years to become a true competitor to the major manufacturers (GE, Siemens, Philips).
The Samsung products are more and more prevalent each year, and products like the RS80 are examples of the best ultrasound machines for the price. We recommend the RS80 because of its advanced capabilities for the best value.
S-Vision is Samsung’s latest beamforming and imaging engine designed for industry-leading resolution.
An S-Vue transducer uses a higher bandwidth with higher resolution than its standard, previous generation transducers.
Clear Track helps you perform more accurate injections/biopsies by providing a simulated path for the needle.
QuickScan is an image optimization function with a touch-of-a-button.
Hybrid Beamforming uses new hardware and software to create a more omnidirectional view of an image.
