Samsung

The Samsung R7 was launched in 2011 as the Medison SonoAce R7. When Samsung purchased Medison later that year it continued developing the R7 and continues to produce it to this day in an improved form. The Samsung R7 is an economy level diagnostic ultrasound system focused on women’s health applications and features good 4D performance for the price. The SonoAce R7 was designed on the same platform as the SonoAce R5 but not only is the image quality much better than the R5 in 2D it also offers good 4D performance not available on the R5. The Samsung R7 also offers several midrange features such as the 19” monitor and Elastography that are not typically found on economy priced ultrasound machines.

Overview

Advanced Samsung R7 transducers

The Samsung R7 offers four 4D probes including three 4D convex probes, the nearly identical [ 4 – 8 MHz] VN4-8 and 3D4-8 and the [ 2 – 6 MHz] 3DC2-6. The VN4-8 and 3DC2-6 are lower cost options to the similar 3D4-8.. The [ 4 – 9 MHz] 3D4-9 4D endocavitary probe for the SonoAce R7 is especially useful in this price category for it’s ability to show the coronal view of the uterus, something impossible with a 2D transducer. Most ultrasound machines in the economy price range do not offer a 4D endocavitary probe. Also excellent for women’s health on the Samsung R7 is the L5-12/50 2D linear probe with a wide 50mm scan head that makes it more efficient for breast scanning.

Popular SonoAce R7 Transducers

The [ 4 – 8 MHz] VN4-8 is the most popular 4D convex transducer for the Samsung R7 and is a lower cost alternative to the 3D4-8. The C2-8 [ 2 – 8 MHz ] is the most popular 2D convex while the [ 4 – 9 MHz ] ER4-9 is the most popular endocavitary probe for the Samsung R7 because its straight shaft is preferred to the angled version on the EVN4-9 by many sonographers in the women’s health field as an ergonomic preference.

Competitors

Medison R7 comparison with other Samsung systems

The Medison SonoAce R7 was launched in 2010 before Medison was purchased by Samsung. It was released soon after the SonoAce R5 but improved upon the R5 in every way. Image quality, features and ergonomics on the R7 are all superior to the R5 in significant ways. When Samsung took over it made significant improvements to the R7 while lowering its price. The Samsung Medison R7 has replaced the R5 as the entry level Samsung ultrasound system. Samsung then launched the midrange H60 that provides a huge step up above the R7.

Other brands competing with the Samsung Medison R7

The closest competitor to the Samsung Medison R7 from GE is the Logiq P5 premium that has a similar price, or the Voluson P8 that is at a much higher price point. The Medison R7 has a broader application set than the Voluson P8, but is not a true shared-service ultrasound machine like the Logiq P5. The R7 has 4D image quality superior to the Logiq P5 but a much more modest set of probes and optional features. Both are light and compact though the 19” monitor on the Samsung Medison R7 is far larger than the 15” on the P5. The Philips ClearVue 550, like the Logiq P5 is a shared service machine with a very limited set of transducers. The Samsung Medison R7 meanwhile has more transducer options, especially 4D transducers though the workflow on the Philips unit is superior. The Samsung Medison R7 is best for medical practices that are focused on OB/GYN and want strong 4D, but don’t want to pay the premium for the Voluson P8, whereas the Logiq P5 and ClearVue 550 fit better in practices that need a wide variety of applications or Radiologist who need the most efficient workflow.

SonoAce R7 technology definitions

SCI: Spatial Compounding Image™ is a technology on the SonoAce R7 that improves signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and enhances contrast resolution via electronic ultrasound beam steering. This provides greater control. SCI compounds numerous scan lines to deliver significantly clearer definition in soft tissue planes, with reduced speckle and other interference.

3D XI:3D eXtended Imaging™ on the Samsung SonoAce R7 is a suite of three imaging applications: Multi-Slice View™ transforms ultrasound data into a series of sequential images while Oblique View™ enables examination of 3D data in a wide range of planes. Finally, the Volume CT™ function allows coronal, sagittal and axial imaging. The combined result is complete control of 3D and 4D volume data manipulation from various perspectives to ensure diagnostic accuracy and confidence.

Auto IMT: This feature provides measurement of the intima-media thickness of the carotid artery wall. Samsung’s Auto IMT™ on the SonoAce R7 provides information such as the Framingham Score, risk factors and a user graph. In addition, a comprehensive set of settings including Mean, Max, Standard Deviation and Quality Index measurements are instantly available at the touch of a single button.

e-Motion Marker:This feature displays the direction of the transducer’s beam plane on the SonoAce R7’s screen and provides reference information to assist in diagnosis. The position of the uterus and ovaries can be expressed easily and intuitively.

ElastoScan: A diagnostic ultrasound technique for imaging elasticity, ElastoScan on the SonoAcr R7 detects the presence of tumors in breast and cervical tissues and converts the tissue stiffness into color images that assist in guiding biopsies, and interventional treatments as well as initial diagnosis.

Strain: Strain function quantitatively displays cardiac motion using motion vectors and diagnoses cardiac dyssynchrony. On the SonoAce R7 Strain can detect radial speckle tracking easily and obtain trajectory along with strain information.

Stress Echo: The SonoAce R7 provides a package for pharmacological Stress Echo, diastolic Stress Echo, and exercise Stress Echo. The programmable features of each Stress Echo study give you a streamlined workflow to fit your needs. Stress Echo supports a flexible reporting format that can be individually optimized for your workplace environment.
