Sonosite Portable Ultrasound System

Choose an amount to donate


Sonosite is a brand of portable ultrasound systems used in medical settings, and at Grand River Hospital, these ultrasound systems play an important role in kidney care. The kidneys are the body’s filtration system, and when the kidneys begin to fail, whether from physical injury or diseases like diabetes, our bodies needs help. Dialysis helps patients by cleaning their blood and removing potentially harmful waste, water and chemicals.

In kidney care, a portable ultrasound system helps staff ensure the proper placement of dialysis needles at the start of every dialysis treatment. Ultrasound systems are a non-invasive and painless way to create images of internal structures in the body using high-frequency sound waves, and using this type of ultrasound system to guide and insert dialysis needles is best practice.

The hospital is currently in need of three additional Sonosite portable ultrasound systems for its kidney care program. All donations exceeding our fundraising goal for parent suites will support the highest priority needs of the Kidney Care care area.
