Award Winning ZONE Sonography® Technology (ZST) Enables Superior Image Quality and Feature Rich Capabilities

Claremont, New Hampshire – January 30, 2018 – Valley Regional Hospital (VRH), a leading New Hampshire healthcare provider, announced the recent installation of a premium Resona 7 ultrasound system from Mindray, a global developer of healthcare solutions. Based on ZONE Sonography® Technology (ZST), the system provides excellent quality imaging along with feature rich capabilities in addition to a robust service and update guarantee. VRH is the first healthcare facility in New England to provide Resona 7 system imaging.

“We conducted reviews of five different vendors during our due diligence,” said Jesse Zabski, lead ultrasound technologist with VRH. “We chose Mindray because we believe the image quality is top notch, providing our patients with state-of-the-art technology. The five-year service and update guarantee is also impressive and unusual in this industry.”

VRH will use the Resona 7 system to meet all the general ultrasound needs including abdominal, obstetrics, gynecology, thyroid and breast imaging. The hospital also purchased a small footprint, high frequency transducer (L20-5) in order to provide orthopedic physicians with the ability to image musculoskeletal structures in the diagnoses of joints and muscles, such as torn rotator cuffs and other issues due to injury. Zabski also believes the detail provided by the system will greatly improve breast imaging, which when combined with the hospital’s 3D-mammography system, could aid in reducing unnecessary biopsies and procedures.

“The Resona 7 is being set up to be the workhorse of the ultrasound department,” said Zabski. “In addition, there are some key features on the system, which can significantly reduce scanning time especially on restless patients like small children. With the wireless capability, I can send images immediately to the radiologist for review and avoid multiple trips to retake images if additional views are needed. We believe this is yet another step to ensure excellence in patient care.”

“We could not be more proud to be the first in New England to offer such advanced ultrasound innovation.”  Says Peter J. Wright, FACHE

President & Chief Executive Officer of Valley Regional.  “It allows us to provide state of the art images to our local community, which is at the cutting-edge of ultrasound capabilities.
