Siemens Medical Solutions Launches Pocket Ultrasound System

October 3, 2007 — Siemens Medical Solutions recently announced the launch of the world's smallest and first pocket ultrasound system, the ACUSON P10.
This FDA cleared hand held diagnostic ultrasound system is a little larger than a common PDA, weighs 1.6 pounds, and reportedly fits into a lab coat pocket. It is intended for complementary initial diagnostic care and triage, particularly in cardiology, emergency care and obstetrics.
"Instead of having to rush the patient to the technology, the P10 system brings the technology to the patient. This can save critical minutes, especially when a patient is in cardiac distress or with trauma patients, who have multiple injuries," said Eyal Herzog, MD, FACC, director of the Cardiac Care Unit at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, in New York, and an ACUSON P10 system beta site user. "The application flexibility and portability of the P10 pocket ultrasound system mark significant changes in the way diagnostic and emergency care are administered, changes that could alter the face of the physical exam and, ultimately, lead to better patient outcomes."
