March 26, 2018 — Samsung NeuroLogica announced the Samsung RS85A ultrasound system has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and will be unveiled at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) in New York City, March 24-28, 2018. The RS85A is a premium general imaging with superior image quality and usability, according to Samsung NeuroLogica President and CEO Philip Sullivan.
The new ultrasound system features an array of improvements, including:
- MV-Flow: Allows for visualization of slow-flow micro-vascularized structures, which can be difficult to assess with conventional power Doppler ultrasound. It also provides clinicians an additional way to check lesions for indications of cancer or inflammation;
- S-Shearwave Imaging: Provides new indicators for clinical diagnosis by quantifying the elasticity of tissue or lesions via shearwave elastography, which may help increase the accuracy of diagnosis for breast and liver diseases;
- CEUS+: Diagnoses and characterizes lesions in the liver using a contrast agent in adult and pediatric populations; and
- S-Fusion: Enables simultaneous localization of a lesion using real-time ultrasound in conjunction with other volumetric imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT), while expanding its capabilities to the prostate gland for precise, targeted biopsy guidance.
The RS85A was also developed to help decrease user-fatigue and repetitive motions with an enhanced monitor arm and increased range of motion and tilt. These improvements allow the user to position the monitor for optimal viewing and control. Additionally, multi-step actions have been combined into a single step to help reduce keystrokes and repetitive user interface interactions.
The system comes with a five-year warranty standard at no additional cost.
In addition to the introduction of the RS85A at AIUM 2018, Samsung will showcase additional products in their comprehensive ultrasound portfolio, including the WS80A with Elite, its premium women’s health ultrasound system, the HS60, HS40 and the HM70A with Plus.
