Buyer’s guide for pre-owned portable ultrasound machines



If you’ve made the decision to buy a pre-owned portable ultrasound machine as opposed to a console system, then you still have to decide which model is best for you. In recent years there have been many more portable ultrasound machines introduced to the marketplace, and now many of them are available as refurbished portable ultrasound machines. Some of the more popular models include the Acuson Cypress, Sonosite MicroMaxx and GE LOGIQ. Of course there are other models as well, and with the increase in supply it’s really a buyer’s market now for used portable ultrasound machines.

If you are looking for a small but powerful system, the Acuson Cypress is an excellent choice. Checking in at less than 20 pounds, this machine is very lightweight and portable, but it is also extremely versatile and can produce images just as good as a machine weighing hundreds of pounds. It features color 2D images and can be used for vascular, cardiac, pediatric, emergency room and more.

Another good choice is the Sonosite MicroMaxx, which is even smaller at less than eight pounds. With the ability to be powered up in less than 15 seconds, this machine takes portability and speed to another level. And despite its small size, it packs a big amount of toughness and is durable enough to tackle the toughest jobs out in the field.

The GE LOGIQ line of portable ultrasound systems is also a very popular choice and there are several models to pick from. GE has been a leader in the ultrasound industry for decades and their reputation for quality and reliability is unmatched. In particular, the GE LOGIQ Book XP is popular because of its exceptional power compared to some other portable machines.
