RSNA: Sony to debut compact, color ultrasound printer
Sony (Booth # 8316) will introduce its UP-D25MD digital color dye sublimation printer optimized for ultrasound applications at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference.

The new UP-D25MD replaces the UP-D23MD, offering a smaller footprint and upgraded features, according to the Park Ridge, N.J.-based company. The printer will utilize the same print media as the previous model, and adds an optional laminated media model with resistance to water and fingerprints.

The compact medical device delivers 423 dpi resolution prints in less than 20 seconds and integrates into a medical cart with its slim 8-3/8-inch wide form factor, Sony said. The printer’s front-panel design offers menus, two user pre-set color options and color adjustment. The device provides flashing LED notification of data transmission and the print cartridge status.
