ACUSON S2000 Reportedly First Multi-Use, Automated Volume Breast Ultrasound

November 26, 2008 - Siemens Healthcare will highlight at RSNA 2008 the ACUSON S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS), reportedly the first multi-use, automated volume breast ultrasound system.

The system is 510(k) pending and not available in the U.S.

The ACUSON S2000 ABVS system automatically and quickly acquires full-field sonographic volumes for comprehensive review and diagnosis of the breast streamlining workflow and reducing operator dependence and variability. The system also features the intuitive, anatomical coronal plane, not available using conventional ultrasound. This view provides a more understandable representation of the global anatomy and architecture of the breast, according to the company. Semi-automated reporting and comprehensive BI-RADS reporting capabilities further enhance the clinical workflow.

The ACUSON S2000 ABVS reportedly has an innovative, mobile in-suite design combining the advanced ACUSON S2000 ultrasound system with a transducer specifically designed for automated ultrasound breast volume imaging. To further optimize high-volume patient care, the system also supports innovative breast imaging applications, such as fatty tissue and eSie Touch elasticity imaging.
