The SonoSite Edge is a durable, shared service ultrasound machine. The Edge’s portable handled-design is reminiscent of its predecessors- the SonoSite Titan, M-Turbo, and MircoMaxx. Compared to its predecessors, the Edge provides a sturdier clamshell design, a larger display, and a bigger (and backlit), splash-resistant silicone keyboard.
The controls and user interface of the SonoSite Edge are almost exactly the same as earlier models from SonoSite. These similarities make the learning curve short for clinicians already experienced with SonoSite’s interface.
The imaging is markedly improved, and from an imaging feature standpoint, the Edge delivers SonoMB MultiBeam Imaging, Advanced Needle Visualization, Color HD, and SonoHD II. SonoHD II is SonoSite’s tremendous speckle reduction algorithm, while color HD provides excellent color clarity with minimal user adjustments.
