The refurbished SonoSite SII is the second-generation point-of-care ultrasound in the SonoSite S-Series of portable ultrasound machines.
The used SonoSite SII design departs slightly from the previous S-Series ultrasound machines by its size and user controls. It is about 3 inches taller than the original S-Series and 2 inches thinner. It adds 4 pounds of weight (12.6 lbs) and has more intuitive controls. The SII is completely flat-panel and has an overall different look and feel than the original S-Series ultrasounds. As with the original S-Series, the SII can be mounted as a zero-footprint machine with mounting hardware.
Imaging modes include 2D, M-Mode, tissue harmonics, velocity color Doppler, color Power Doppler and it includes SonoSite’s advanced image processing technologies such as SonoADAPT, SonoHD2, can colorHD.
The SII is designed for bedside/point-of-care ultrasound use. It includes a wide variety of imaging presets for optimal imaging, and also includes calculation packages for cardiac, OB/GYN/Fertility, and arterial exams.

Overall the image quality is improved over the original S-Series, and it is designed to be more intuitive with a better user interface. It’s larger than the original series and a bit heavier. However, on a cart or wall-mount, this is not an issue. SonoSite continues to serve the needs by designing excellent point-of-care products.
The SII is overall larger and heavier than the original series. This is generally not a problem because it is not a handheld machine. It is designed for use on a cart or wall-mount. Additionally, image quality is improved, it’s more versatile, and considered more user-friendly.
The SonoSite SII is excellent for mobility, image quality and ease-of-use. On a stand, it is transported easily from Emergency, ICU, Anesthesia or other departments. It has a wide variety of new transducers that are designed specifically for point-of-care applications.
The SII is specifically designed to be easily cleaned and disinfected. The lack of a keyboard or other controls make it very easily to quickly clean and disinfect the ultrasound machine.
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.
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.
