M8 Portable Ultrasound


The Mindray M8 is a premium portable ultrasound system with exceptional image quality and depth penetration in a robust magnesium alloy case.

The M8 is suited to more advanced abdominal and cardiac imaging in small animals. It is ideally suited to the clinic that is currently using ultrasound on a frequent basis (e.g., for abdominal scans, focused exams and heart assessments) and wishes to upgrade and advance the standard of ultrasound examinations without breaking the bank.

The M8 is also suited to equine internal medicine or orthopaedic applications. Elastography is likely to become the new standard for the assessment of tendon and ligament injury healing in horses (Tamura, 2017; Lustgarten 2014). To date, elastography has been highly dependent on user technique. Natural Touch elastography on the M8 reduces the dependence on user technique, improving inter-operator reproducibility for higher clinical accuracy.

The M8 can be configured with a UMT-500 Trolley, giving you the features of a cart-based system, without sacrificing on portability.

M8 Image enhancements

The M8 boasts image enhancements due to its’ powerful mQuadro platform and new ComboWave Transducers. These transducers utilise a new type of composite piezoelectric material which results in the following:

  • Optimised acoustic spectrum
  • Reduced acoustic impedance

The result is improved penetration without the typical trade-off with resolution.

Ease of Use

As with all Mindray products, the workflow is intuitive and efficient.

  • The M8’s workflow is the same as the popular M9 platform.
  • The functions of some keys can be customised by the user to increase efficiency.
  • The ultra-quick boot-up time of just 28 seconds from the first touch means that you can rapidly turn on and scan in emergencies.


  • The M8 is highly portable with a slim laptop-style design.
  • The magnesium alloy frame adds robustness while keeping the M8 lightweight.
  • The machine can be cart-mounted for use in the clinic or transported in its carry case for ambulatory scenarios.
  • Can be battery operated providing up to 90 minutes of scanning time.
