ZONE Sonography® Technology

ZONE Sonography® overcomes limitations of the traditional beamformer process, as well as expands the current and future possibilities of patient-friendly modular ultrasound. This constitute

a fundamentally new software image formers,

the zone-wise detection of the echo data,

a long-term storage of original probe information as well as

the implementation of commercially available, ever-increasing processing power

the technological bases for the following example already with Zone Sonography® realized industry novelty:

Ultrasound with Responsibility

Everyone is different. Concerning an improved diagnostic accuracy, the system takes this into depiction with ZST+. Instead to assume from the conventional default standard (1.540 m/s), the technology is now for the first time able to use the individual patient-dependent speed of sound for imaging.

Transforming ultrasound metrics from conventional beamforming to channel data based processing, ZST+ is able to deliver multiple imaging advances: Advanced Acoustic Acquisition, Dynamic Pixel Focusing, Sound Speed Compensation, Advanced Image Processing and Total Recall Imaging.

Advanced Acoustic Acquisition

By transmitting and receiving a relatively smaller number of large zones, Advanced Acoustic Acquisition extracts more information from each acquisition, 10 times faster than a conventional line-by-line beamforming method.

Dynamic Pixel Focusing

Dynamic Pixel Focusing technology allows Resona 7 to achieve extreme uniformity in pixel level through the whole field of view. Therefore, there is no longer the need to frequently adjust the focal positions to achieve uniformity across patient exams.

Sound Speed Compensation

By retrospectively analyzing complete channel data stored in channel data memory, the Resona 7 is able to intelligently choose the optimal sound speed to improve image accuracy even with tissue variation, allowing for adaptive tissue-specific optimization.

Advanced Image Processing

By multiple and retrospective channel data processing, it makes the best use of acoustic information for image improvement.
HD Scope: higher definition image within ROI.
Coherent Spatial Synthesis: further improved image quality.

Total Recall Imaging

As ZST+ captures and stores the complete acoustic raw data set, Total Recall Imaging allows the user to retrospectively
modify numerous imaging parameters and optimize clinical information.

V Flow

A novel visualization of blood flow, in which in which color arrows are displayed, instead of the color map of a conventional Doppler ultrasound image.

Conventional method

New method


Extremely high frame-rate flow imaging over 600 frames per second

Both the velocity and direction of the blood flow can be clearly displayed

Laminar, vortex, secondary, and retrograde flows can be illustrated in complex flow imaging

Intuitive display dynamically shows the flow process with color arrows

Quantitative measurement of velocity and direction at an arbitrary location


  V Flow

Applications above

Jugular vein and carotid bifurcation where the CCA, ICA and ECA are shown in one image. Detailed hemodynamic is lacked in CFM, while in V Flow it not only shows flow direction intuitively, but also the flow velocity change in Jugular vein and carotid.

iFusion with Respiration Compensation

Improve the accurcy of fusion imaging to a new level and improve the precision of interventional diagnoses  and treatments.


Application 1

iFusion during intervention procedure

Application 2

Comparison of before and after respiration compensation (the left is pre-compensation and the right is post-compensation)


Establish the model of liver motion along respiration accurately, remedy the respiration-induced fusion errors effectively

Markedly improve the fusion accuracy of full respiration cycles

Provides remarkable clinical values with ease of use, supporting various ultrasonic modes at the same time and providing target markers and safe margin

More timely and effective postoperative evaluation of the treatments


IMT is a worldwide-recognized, economic and repeatable medical method to detect CVDs. But traditional IMT detection have some limitations. RIMT is based on Radio Frequency data, and provide the user extreme accurate IMT measurement.

The difference between RIMT and Traditional IMT

  Rimt case

RIMT(1)~RIMT(6): The maximum value in every heart cycle

RIMT(M): mean value of RIMT(1)~RIMT(6)

SD: standard deviation

ROI W: The width of ROI


RIMT is good complement to traditional IMT Compare with traditional IMT can be applied on CCA,ECA, ICA and Bulb, RIMT can only be applied on CCA. But RIMT has higher accuracy when be applied on CCA, and it can be use together with ECG to detect intima-medium thickness in real time.

RIMT has more potential application and value to be explored. Since RIMT can measure the intima-medium thickness of every frames in a complete heart cycle, in the future, we can use RIMT together with ECG to detect intima-medium thickness in the same time of every heart cycle.

Improve early diagnosis of CVDs

Improve the effectiveness of pharmacy treatment follow-up

Reduce dependence on operator and image quality


CEUS enables the Resona 7 to detect and utilize both 2nd harmonic and non-linear fundamental signals, generating significantly enhanced images, resulting in greater sensitivity of minor signals and longer agent duration with lower MI.
