I am a housecall physician, moving from one Medicare-housebound patient to another in a small van. I would like to start doing ultrasounds at the bedside (I'm a former trauma surgeon, and did lots of FAST scans and US-guided breast biopsies). I need a lightweight, durable unit with excellent image quality. The most likely diagnoses are pleural effusions, pericardial effusions, urinary obstruction, cholecystitis/cholelithiasis/choledocholithiasis, and sequential measurements of abdominal aortic aneuysms. Price is of course important, since I only see the Medicare housebound. Where do I start?

We are looking for a GE LOGIQ Book XP for a South American client. Where do we start? Do we go to GE or are there larger suppliers out there we can turn to who can help us source it?

Hi Dr. Singh,

I have only had one service issue with any of the Mindray products I've sold and it was a minor battery issue. I've had Mindray systems in the field for more than 2 years and the service record has been better than any other. Apparently Mindray makes its own parts. Although it's a Chinese company, I've found nothing cheap about them. Granted, however, I did not recommend some of the early iterations of the M5 because of its color Doppler, but the quality is excellent and they haven't broken down on me yet.

Hello Emilios,

Sorry, my original response apparently did not get posted. I would not consider the DC-7 a "High End" system such as the Philips IU-22, GE Logiq e9, or the Siemens S2000 systems. Those systems have higher-end technologies that you would typically find in a specialized environment, research environment, or hospital that would typically see more difficult patients and more rare cases.

For OB/GYN use, the high-end systems would be most often found in perinatology, or other specialized environments that may require the highest frame rates or imaging technologies to help in more difficult environments.

The fact is, most mid-range systems today provide image quality that is more than adequate. We have many OB/GYNs who are happy with older ATL HDI 3000 units, GE Logiq 400s and other systems that haven't been around for many years.

The Mindray DC-7 would be most comparable to the GE P5 or the Siemens X300 system. Probably better than the Philips HD11, but that's a fairly subjective comment.

I hope that helps.

Emilios Grigoriadis

Hello Brian,
I would like your opinion as an expert if you classify the DC-7 in the high-end systems, especially in ob/gyn use. What is your opinion upon the features of this system and which other systems is it comparable to.
Tnx in advance
