Acuson X700 ultrasound system offers advanced image quality, improved cost of ownership for a wide range of clinical applications

November 20, 2012 – With the Acuson X700 ultrasound system, Siemens Healthcare has developed a powerful ultrasound system that offers exceptional image quality, robust technologies, and intelligent workflow solutions at an excellent price/performance ratio. Many advanced imaging technologies that were previously available only on high-end systems are now standard on the Acuson X700 system, which also features workflow technologies that support high throughput and improve the total cost of ownership.

The ACUSON X700 system expands Siemens’ Acuson X Family of ultrasound systems, which are dedicated to providing excellent performance and clinical efficiency across a range of clinical specialties. Siemens migrated many of the technologies on the ACUSON X700 system from its high-end Acuson S Family of ultrasound systems to enhance imaging performance. Advanced SieClear spatial compounding, for example, enhances anatomic border definition and improves tissue contrast. Dynamic TCE tissue contrast enhancement technology also improves borders and reduces speckle/noise, facilitating subtle tissue differentiation. The Acuson X700 system features intelligent workflow solutions to enable the high throughput required by various clinical departments that use the system. For example, TGO tissue grayscale optimization technology provides instantaneous one-button image optimization by automatically adjusting the image brightness to the tissue type being imaged.

Siemens has migrated its patented MicroPinless (MP) transducer connectors from its high-end platforms to the Acuson X700 system. MP connectors offer the highest signal fidelity and improve the signal-to-noise ratio to enhance signal quality. The transducers are compatible with Siemens’ Acuson S Family, Acuson X Family, and Acuson Sequoia ultrasound systems to increase flexibility and investment value for the customer. The Acuson X700 system also features a new, single-solution, 50-millimeter aperture linear array transducer for both superficial and deep imaging. The proprietary Hanafy lens transducer technology provides continuous focusing and image uniformity while delivering superb contrast and detail resolution.

"I am amazed at the image quality, acquisition times, transducer quality, and sensitivity of the system," said Corrie Van Loon-Rosario, RDMS, a sonographer at Central Valley Women's Health Associates, Fresno, Calif., which has been using the Acuson X700 system since August 2012.
"I sometimes scan more than 18 patients a day. I can be more efficient and more productive with the ACcuson X700 system, which is easy to operate.”

The Acuson X700 system offers many features and options to accommodate a broad range of applications and clinical environments. For example, 3-Scape™ real-time 3D imaging and Advanced fourSight™ technology support 3D/4D imaging for abdominal, fetal, and gynecological examinations. Multiple knowledge-based workflow applications support workflow to ensure consistency. For example, the software syngo® Auto OB Measurements draws on a large database of ultrasound images to provide instant, automated biometric measurements of the fetus without manual calculations. Advanced cardiac imaging applications such as intracardiac echocardiography imaging (ICE) support procedure visualization and device placement monitoring. The system’s options and features can be configured individually to support various clinical needs.

The Acuson X700 system features a new design for improved usability, including a 20-inch LED display. An integrated handle with articulating arm enables the user to easily position the monitor for comfortable viewing. Two front-accessible USB ports allow easy, convenient data transfer. The height-adjustable control panel swivels for maximum user comfort.
