3D/4D Imaging Aids Diagnosis in Busy OB/GYN Environment

ACUSON S2000

February 3, 2010 - The demanding nature of maternal-fetal medicine requires medical imaging and workflow solutions to help streamline the busy environment. Dedicated women’s imaging systems and applications in OB/GYN imaging presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s (SMFM) 30th Annual Meeting held Feb.1-6, in Chicago, will focus on new advances in the delivery of care.

Innovations in ultrasound technology for OB/GYN imaging step into the next generation of technology, offering 3D/4D imaging packaged with 3D vision stereoscopic glasses create a 3D/4D view of the fetus.

Siemens Healthcare will show the Women’s Imaging and ACUSON X300 ultrasound system, premium edition (PE) – Women’s Imaging, Siemens Healthcare (booth #813) at the show. The ACUSON S2000 ultrasound system – Women’s Imaging is optimized for 2D, Doppler and 3D/4D imaging for the demanding requirements in maternal-fetal medicine. The system features Siemens-exclusive knowledge-based workflow applications, such as eSieScan workflow protocols, enhancing examination processes and increasing the consistency of exams, while at the same time reducing keystrokes to enable shorter exam times and improve patient throughput.
 
The ACUSON S2000 system – Women’s Imaging also features Fetal Heart STIC (Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation) imaging, which captures data over multiple heart cycles and creates a 3D fetal heart volume, allowing sonographers to view the fetal heart in multiple planes.
 
Compact and portable, the ACUSON X300 PE – Women’s Imaging offers is a OB/GYN imaging solution with B-mode, color Doppler, PW Doppler, and 3D/4D imaging. Offering Dynamic TCE tissue contrast enhancement technology and TGO tissue grayscale optimization technology, the system provides one-button optimization of B-mode images to shorten exam time and provide greater consistency between users. fourSight 4D imaging technology is designed to enable streamlined, intuitive workflow and advanced acquisition, data rendering, and post-processing functionality for trans-abdominal and endovaginal 3D/4D exams.
 
One of the highlights of the ACUSON S2000 system – Women’s Imaging and the ACUSON X300 system PE – Women’s Imaging includes syngo Auto OB measurements, an advanced clinical tool that automates routine biometry measurements of the fetus.
 
The syngo Auto OB measurements eliminates this time-consuming manual process of doing biometry measurements, saving up to 75 percent of the keystrokes in routine fetal measurements freeing users from repetitive tasks, says the manufacturer.
 
The application also addresses the challenges related to user-dependence and variability, as well as consistency and reproducibility in fetal biometry. Measurements are automatically saved into the patient’s report and include the biparietal diameter (BPD), head circumference (HC), abdominal circumference (AC), femur length (FL), crown rump length (CRL) and the humerus length (HL).
 
Siemens will also be showcasing the new syngo.fourSight Workplace, currently a work-in-progress, image management software, which uses NVIDIA 3D Vision stereoscopic glasses and NVIDIA Quadro FX high-end professional graphics solutions to create vivid 3D/4D images of the fetus. The clinical images, obtained with the ACUSON S2000 system, are further enhanced using Amnioscopic Rendering, a Siemens-exclusive technology that produces photo-realistic 3D images. While conventional 3D ultrasound technologies use two-dimensional monitors for the evaluation of 3D images, utilizing NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, users can experience 3D images in real 3D.
