Mindray DC-70 Ultrasound Machine


Share it:

The Mindray DC-70 is a mid-range Color Doppler Ultrasound System which is specialized in shared-service application, especially in advanced 3/4D in OB/GYN. The Mindray DC-70 is also designed to cover a wide range of applications including abdominal, pediatric, small organs, neonatal cephalic, adult cephalic, trans-rectal, trans-vaginal, MSK (conventional, superficial), urology, adult cardiac, and peripheral vessel.

 

The Mindray DC-70 integrates their latest 128-channel Imaging Engine which provides support for high performance hardware such as a 19″ LED monitor, an angle adjustable 10.4″ LED touchscreen, 4 active probe ports, 500GB hard disk, gel warmer, and dedicated endocavity transducer holder. The Mindray DC-70 is available for a wide selection of transducers: 8 curved array transducers(including C5-1E high density and performance convex, V11-3WE 213 degree wide angle endocavity, CB10-4E bi-plane urology dedicate option), 4 volume transducers strongly supporting advanced OB/GYN exams (D7-2E economic 3D transducer option, D6-2NE, D6-2E, DE10-3E), 4 broad bandwidth linear array transducers(including high density and performance L14-6NE(192 elements) and L14-6WE(256 elements), 6 dedicated cardiac transducers(including P7-3ETE for TEE, SP5-1E single crystal sector transducer, P4-2E economic solution for adult echo, P7-3E for pediatric, and P10-4E for neonate, and CW5S for vascular). These transducers effectively cover a wide array of clinical requirements, thanks to their low-to-high bandwidth frequency coverage.

 

The Mindray DC-70 provides unique and outstanding workflow options, more than any other competitors’ mid-range products. Smart Track is the function that automatically optimizes both Color/Power and PW, including Color box position & angle and PW sample volume position, angle & size, for more intelligence during real time scanning.
The Smart Track enables to reduce repetitive, time-consuming steps; speed and simplify the vascular exams.

 

The iWork function is an Auto Workflow protocol that lowers repetitive workload and improves scanning efficiency by having pre-installed settings by each clinical environment protocol. With the Raw Data function, a physician can use the stored image and cine for re-preprocessing such as optimization, measurement, and adding comments. In addition, the Mindray DC-70 is also capable of exporting iOS file formats; compatible with IOS devices.

 

The Mindray DC-70 has rich functionality at its price point and product positioning. As a fully-functional ultrasound solution, the Mindray DC-70 provides strong GI features: UWN Contrast imaging for 2nd generation contrast imaging, Natural Touch Elastography for stiffness evaluation, iNeedle for Needle Visualization Enhancement, iScape for panoramic imaging with power mode, IMT for Auto IMT measurement and Smart Bladder for auto liquid volume measurement. The Mindray DC-70 is more powerful in features for advanced OB/GYN care with conventional 4D iLive functions for amazing, realistic view of fetus, iPage for volume data with multiple parallel 2D images; STIC for fetal vascular circulation diagnosis, Smart OB for auto measure of most frequently used items, and dedicated IVF package and Smart NT for auto measure of NT. The Mindray DC-70 enables to support full cardiac packages for adult, pediatric and neonate applications. In addition, Stress Echo, CW mode, complete TDI modes and TDI quantification are available.

 

For a competitively advanced OB/GYN care solution, following OB/GYN options on the Mindray DC-70 are critical. iLive, the same as Samsung’s Realistic Vue and GE’s HDlive, is a virtualized rendering tool to obtain the amazingly realistic view of fetus; and the angle of the light source can be adjusted freely. The iPage function provides multiple slices of 2D images from a 3D volume image, similar to CT or MR Imaging. The Smart OB is an auto measurement tool that provides the 5 most frequently used measurements of OB such as BPD/HC/FL/AC/OFD. At last, Smart NT is another automatic measurement function that measures and displays max NT result by the industry standard method of “in to in.”

Review

Mindray DC-70 Review:

The Mindray DC-70 1.0 launched in April 2016, and the new Mindray DC-70 2.0 has been released with more advanced options and premium transducers in Nov, 2016. Like other Mindray ultrasound systems, the Mindray DC-70 has feature-rich products both hardware and software. In addition, Since Mindray launched its premium grade product, Resona, premium user interfaces and options have been migrated to lower grade products, such as the Mindray DC-70. For the last decade, the major market focus of Mindray products was general imaging with strengths in multi-purpose systems structures and rich features. In terms of completeness of each feature, Mindray has been made a great step. Those achievements and benefits have been nicely integrated to the Mindray DC-70 too. The Mindray DC-70 2.0 transplants the same innovative Resona volume-rendering algorithm to achieve innovative 3D/4D performance, faster rendering speed, and higher quality imaging processing for more vivid rendering results.

Although the Mindray DC-70 is a mid-range system, it gives various options for the system work better; the high quality and density linear transducers are one of those that L14-6NE and L14-6WE are a great selection to have better 2D resolution and PW sensitivity. In addition, with 2.0 of DC-70, higher end transducer solutions are available. For deeper penetration in GI for C5-1E, the lower frequency linear option for L9-3E, expanding dedicate cardiac exams for SP5-1E, P10-4E, and P7-3TE(TEE), and bi-plane transducer CB10-4E for urology. Besides those additional options, 2nd generation contrast imaging and 2D tissue tracking are outstanding options too, which are not available at mid-range, but is only available to the Mindray DC-70. While presenting the Mindray DC-70 to customers, full screen image (iZoom) with needle visualization, touchscreen working with gesture, 30 degree steerable Color angle, and Echo boost enhancing endocardium margin definition are favorably received.
