Pocket Ultrasound Package Offered by Siemens

The ACUSON P10 is a pocket ultrasound system that weighs 1.6 pounds and reportedly fits easily into a lab coat pocket.

Intended for complementary initial diagnostic care and triage, the ACUSON P10 system offers applications in other medical specialties, such as obstetrics, where it can be used in labor and delivery. The system can be used by physicians and medical personnel in intensive care units, ambulances and medevac helicopters and can also be used to detect conditions that may be clinically significant, but have previously required expansive or invasive diagnostic testing in asymptomatic patients, according to its manufacturer.

Also featured at RSNA, the X-class includes the new ACUSON X300 all-purpose ultrasound system, which is capable of performing vascular age assessments using the syngo Arterial Health Package (AHP) for cardiovascular risk assessment. The technique renders a combined risk score that includes factors such as a measurement of the carotid intima-media thickness, Framingham risk index assessment and comparison with the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) database.

syngo AHP reportedly combines all of that information to estimate vascular age, enabling physicians to predict a person’s risk of coronary heart disease. Also part of the X-class, the ACUSON X150 ultrasound system delivers a combination of diagnostic performance, ergonomics and scalability. Compact and portable, the system fits busy clinical needs and can support a facility as its patient requirements or clinical applications evolve, according to the manufacturer.

The field upgradeable system allows the user flexibility to add sensitive color and power Doppler capabilities and a cardiac screening application. The ACUSON X150 features 3-Scape real-time 3D imaging for the construction of real-time 3D images during free-hand acquisition. Its 15-inch flat panel display is mounted on an articulating arm providing a wide range of motion to achieve a comfortable scanning position, even when space is tight.
