Workflow Solutions for Ultrasound Examinations | SonoSite
The SonoSite® Workflow Solutions (SWS™) software streamlines the management of ultrasound examinations performed with the SonoSite M-Turbo®, S Series™, NanoMaxx®, and MicroMaxx® ultrasound systems by enabling clinicians to easily access, review, and manage the ultrasound examination data files.
SWS software also supports ultrasound systems made by other vendors.

The SWS software can support up to 100 user accounts, is compatible with PC and Mac® platforms, and provides flexibility for auditing user log-in activity.
