The refurbished SonoSite S-Series of ultrasound machines are “mountable” systems that are designed for very specific uses. Image quality is what you would expect from the SonoSite M-Turbo, and it runs the same transducers as found on the SonoSite Edge products.
The S-Series consists of the following systems: SonoSite S-Cath for radiologists, S-Fast for Emergency Medicine physicians, S-ICU for Intensive Care, S-MSK for musculoskeletal pathology, S-Nerve for anesthesiologists, and S-Women’s Health for Breast Surgeons and women’s health clinicians.
The refurbished S-Series of ultrasounds do not have keyboards and can be mounted to a mobile cart, a wall, or even ceiling-mounted. They have a limited user interface, no keyboard and are ultimately designed to provide great images with minimal ease-of-use. The price of the S-Series of ultrasounds is also more budget-friendly than buying a full M-Turbo ultrasound system.

A refurbished S-Series portable ultrasound machine is not for everybody. As each system’s name implies, they’re designed for a specific use in a specific setting. You won’t be making many measurements or offering much input, which allows it to keep a clean, uncluttered user interface that is intuitive and simple. It’s a good design for physicians looking to buy an ultrasound to assist in their procedures. Easy, fast, great images.
Yes, the S-Series of portable ultrasound machines have has DVI out, S-Video in and output, and composite video output for connection to external recording or printing devices.
Yes, the SonoSite S-Series can connect via Ethernet or WiFi to export images and they have options for DICOM Store and Modality Worklist.
“Point of Care” ultrasound machine refers to the rapidly growing group of clinicians performing and interpreting ultrasound at the bedside. This includes surgery, emergency medicine, Intensive Care (ICU) and musculoskeletal care. “Point of Care” ultrasounds provide rapid diagnosis, visualization of tissue, and needle visualization for procedures at bedside. Some medical schools are providing ultrasound machines to their students to carry around during their clinical rotations.
This improves your ability to see a needle in tissue. Ultrasounds designed for needle guidance use a beam-steering technology to steer ultrasound beam perpendicular to the needle, thereby improving visualization of the needle.
Yes, we sell a lot of refurbished SonoSite systems to physicians using a portable ultrasound for needle-guided procedures.
No, any ultrasound can do this, however, every bit of optimization technology that can be used is helpful in guiding a needle.
SonoMB on SonoSite ultrasound machines is also known as compound imaging. It allows the ultrasound transducer to see from multiple lines of site at different angles, as opposed to the standard line-of-site that’s perpendicular to the transducer lens. The result is a better-defined image with reduced artifact.
SonoADAPT is an automatic tissue optimization feature, which automatically adjusts gain and other imaging controls, which increases image quality and improves efficiency.
This is most commonly known as a speckle reduction imaging enhancement package offered on ultrasound machines. It uses a special software algorithm to enhance tissue definition and eliminate artifact (speckle) within the image.
