I apologize in advance if this is a covered topic, I did not find adequate info, but my hospital is on a tight budget, and I have been asked to find a cost effective ultrasound machine for MSK/interventional, I went to a course last week and they were using a Sonosite M turbo that seemed decent to me, any other suggestions? Thank you in advance

pros:
small, portable, affordable, good support, good superficial resolution, can swap probes

cons:
image quality not adequate for publishing (if you're academic), less potent deep resolution, not tweakable (no harmonics, not much compounding, limited focal zones), transducers are less durable and tend to have less options (phased arrays etc), limited upgradability, not sure if it has dopplers

others:
philips, biosound, GE, siemens

bump!

Any experience from people impressed with ultrasound machines they've used for either regional or MSK/chronic pain? Anyone used Ezono machines?
