Next-Generation Ultrasound Imaging to Consume Less Power

Siemens Accuson S2000

September 20, 2010 – A wide-ranging strategic alliance has been formed to advance ultrasound technology, creating ultrasound imaging systems that produce enhanced image quality and advanced 3-D/4-D imaging capabilities, while consuming less power.

The alliance between Siemens Medical Solutions USA Inc. and National Semiconductor Corporation brings together Siemens’ leadership in ultrasound technology with National’s energy-efficient analog semiconductor capabilities. National will provide leading-edge power management, signal path and transducer solutions while working closely with Siemens. Based on the companies’ collaboration, Siemens’ ultrasound systems will be able to provide next-generation imaging quality and ground-breaking new applications while at the same time, be more energy efficient. Working together, the end goal is to provide medical ultrasound systems that change the game in workflow efficiency, diagnostic reliability and ease of scanning.
