What We ❤️ Love about The Mindray Elite 8
Hands-down,The Mindray Elite 8 is the best value ultrasound on the market and has an easy-to-use, streamlined workflow, with tons of features for in-clinic or mobile use.
Optimal Workflow- This is a very easy to use machine. Mindray 8 has optimal imaging, even in large dogs (in our opinion, as heavy ultrasound users, where 'the rubber meets the road' in veterinary sonography). The Mindray Elite 8 has a strong advantage over other ultrasound machines in this area. 

Flawless Veterinary Images – Dr. Eric Lindquist, DVM, DABVP, Cert. IVUSS, Founder, and CEO of SonoPath.com, has more than 20 years as a clinical sonographer, performing ultrasound, reading ultrasound images, and teaching ultrasound techniques, has had the unique opportunity to evaluate every ultrasound machine available in the veterinary marketplace. This gives Dr. Lindquist an unparalleled level of insight into the many machines available. After years of searching, Dr. Lindquist feels the Mindray Elite 8 provides very high quality imaging on a wide variety of patient sizes and species (even exotics).
Mindray is an excellent option for mid-high-level users looking for improved imaging, and workflows, and clinician provided support. 
High Resolution – The Mindray Elite 8 has the highest resolution and largest screen in this price range, making this an incredibly well priced machine, with imaging capability to match (or better!) more high-end machines costing twice as much.
