Samsung Introduces RS85 Prestige for Advanced Diagnostics

New device offers image clarity, increased processing speed and advanced intelligence features

 Samsung announced the immediate availability of the RS85 Prestige, the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of ultrasound systems.

June 11, 2020 — Samsung announced the immediate availability of the RS85 Prestige, the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of ultrasound systems. The RS85 Prestige was designed for scanning performance and delivers consistent image clarity, depth of penetration and sensitivity to perfusion of blood flow.

“Health systems are under increasing pressure to deliver high-quality care, and the RS85 Prestige is a perfect example of a technology that can help meet the high expectations of patients, providers and administrators,” said Dan Monaghan, senior director, Ultrasound at NeuroLogica. “The combination of processing speed, leading software and Advanced Intelligence features and performance makes the RS85 Prestige a beneficial addition to a hospital’s radiology suite.”

At the core of the image quality of the RS85 Prestige is Crystal Architecture, which combines advanced beamforming (CrystalBeam), sophisticated image processing (CrystalPure) and advanced S-Vue Transducers™ to produce clear, uniform, high-resolution images. Additional features include:

ShadowHDR - Designed to suppress shadows and enhance the clarity of detailed grayscale images.

TA, TSI - Provides quantitative tissue attenuation measurement and tissue scatter distribution measurement to assess steatotic liver changes.

LumiFlow - Displays a “3D-like” appearance to 2D color Doppler, enhancing spatial comprehension of blood vessels and aiding in the understanding of vessel boundaries.

MV-Flo - An advanced Doppler technology providing detailed documentation of microvascular perfusion into tissues and organs.

S-Shearwave Imaging™ - Allows for non-invasive assessment of the stiffness for tissue/lesions in various applications such as breast, liver, MSK and prostate.

“I have been incredibly impressed with the RS85 Prestige’s processing power, gray scale and color quality images, and its features like ShadowHDR that allow higher quality scanning in more difficult-to-image windows,” said Ronald Hidalgo, M.D., abdominal radiologist. “It will bring benefits to imaging departments, especially those focused on body imaging, vascular imaging, and other advanced imaging using the built in Advanced Intelligence.”

A 3-D ultrasound system provides an effective, noninvasive way to estimate blood flow that retains its accuracy across different equipment, operators and facilities, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.

Volume flow as a function of color flow gain (at a single testing site). For each row the color flow c-plane and the computed volume flow are shown as a function of color flow gain. The c-plane is shown for four representative gain levels, whereas the computed volume flow is shown for 12–17 steps across the available gain settings. Flow was computed with (solid circles on the graphs) and without (hollow circles on the graphs) partial volume correction. Partial volume correction accounts for pixels that are only partially inside the lumen. Therefore, high gain (ie, blooming) does not result in overestimation of flow. Systems 1 and 2 converge to true flow after the lumen is filled with color pixel. System 3 is nearly constant regarding gain and underestimates the flow by approximately 17%. Shown are mean flow estimated from 20 volumes, and the error bars show standard deviation. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
