Chison Buyers 9 Guide text graphic

The Chison SonoBook 9 portable ultrasound machine offers premium imaging quality, great workflow, and advanced technologies at a reasonable price. It is the top choice of many sonographers and clinicians across the US for OB/GYN, GI, and cardiovascular applications.

Chison’s ultrasound machines are on par with other leading manufacturers, such as GE, Philips, and Siemens. However, several ultrasound technologies between brands use different names. This can make it difficult to determine if a particular Chison model meets all the same specs as a model from a different brand.

To help you determine if the Chison SonoBook 9 has all the features and technologies you need for your practice, continue reading this detailed guide.

Chison SonoBook 9 Features

The Chison SonoBook 9 has versatility, allowing it to integrate into most hospital departments, OB/GYN clinics, cardiovascular practices, and more. Here are its top features and benefits.

Lightweight and Portable

The Chison SonoBook 9 is a compact, portable ultrasound machine. It’s easy to move from one room to another and take on the go for off-site patient appointments. The machine itself is just 2.75-inches thick and only weighs 21 pounds.

Fast Boot-Up Speeds

The SonoBook 9 has one of the fastest startup times in the portable ultrasound market. Once turned on, you can begin scanning patients in just under a minute. This is beneficial in emergent situations where every second counts.

120º Rotatable Display

A large monitor is essential for sonographers performing many diagnostic examinations. The Chison SonoBook 9 has a 15” LED display that rotates up to 120º. This makes it easy to show patients their images and explain the findings.

Virtual HD 4D Ultrasounds

The Chison SonoBook 9 offers high-quality 4D ultrasounds. The machine uses special software to create images that look like they’re in high definition (HD). This allows for a more detailed examination, particularly of babies in the womb and chambers of the heart.

Sonographers can obtain clear images of different fetal structures, such as the heart, brain, and spine. The machine’s 4D imaging capabilities also help identify twins and pregnancy issues. You can also use the Chison SonoBook 9 to perform fetal echocardiograms (heart ultrasounds). This non-invasive test assesses how well the heart functions and looks for any congenital heart defects.

Deep Penetration for Cardiac Exams

In addition to 4D imaging, the Chison SonoBook 9 also offers deep penetration for cardiac applications. This helps sonographers obtain clear images of the heart, even in obese patients. Depending on the transducer you use, you can perform scans at a maximum depth of 30 cm.

Stress Echo and Tissue Doppler Imaging

The SonoBook 9 has unique tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) capabilities. This technology helps assess blood flow velocity and direction in the heart. TDI is useful for detecting abnormal heart rhythms, valvular disease, and more.

In addition, the machine offers stress echocardiography (stress echo) capabilities. This type of cardiac ultrasound is performed while the patient is exercising on a treadmill or bike. The stress echo helps assess blood flow and identify any areas of decreased blood flow (ischemia). It’s also helpful in evaluating heart function before and after surgery.


Elastography is a special ultrasound technology that uses sound waves to assess tissue stiffness. This helps sonographers identify areas of abnormal tissue, such as tumors. The Chison SonoBook 9 offers elastography for both liver and thyroid examinations.

Real-Time Panoramic Imaging

Another unique feature of the Chison SonoBook 9 is its real-time panoramic imaging (RTPI) capabilities. This technology helps sonographers obtain complete and clear images of larger structures and organs. Sonographers commonly use it for abdominal, vascular, and small parts examinations.

Super Needle Visualization (SNV)

The Chison SonoBook 9 also offers super needle visualization (SNV) capabilities. This special technology helps sonographers see and guide needles during biopsies and other interventional procedures. SNV uses color Doppler to display the position of the needle in real time. It also shows the path of the needle and the surrounding tissue.

Auto-Tracing for Follicles

The Chison SonoBook 9 has a built-in auto-tracing function for follicles. This unique tool helps sonographers measure and track ovarian follicles during fertility examinations. The machine automatically calculates the number, size, and position of follicles. It also displays all of this information on the screen in real-time.

Compatible with Multiple Clinical Applications

In addition to the features mentioned above, the Chison SonoBook 9 is compatible with multiple clinical applications. These include cardiology, gynecology, obstetrics, GI, and more. That means that you can use the machine for a wide range of examinations. Plus, its compatibility with different applications makes it an excellent choice for busy clinics and hospitals.

SSD Storage for Efficient Image Management

Another great feature of the Chison SonoBook 9 is its SSD storage. This helps sonographers manage images more efficiently. They can store, view, and share images quickly and easily. And compared to HDDs, SSDs are much less susceptible to data loss. So you can be sure that your images are always safe and sound.


The Chison SonoBook 9 is a state-of-the-art portable ultrasound machine that offers a wide range of features and capabilities. With its fast boot-up time, large monitor, and real-time panoramic imaging, the SonoBook 9 is ideal for sonographers who need a reliable and easy-to-use machine. Plus, its compatibility with multiple clinical applications makes it an excellent choice for busy clinics and hospitals.
