Updated Ultrasound System Improves Quality, Efficiency

June 16, 2010 – An updated ultrasound system announced this week will feature automated measurements, enhanced image quality and improved volumetric imaging. Siemens Healthcare announced the 1.5 release of its Acuson SC2000 volume imaging ultrasound system this week at the 21st Annual Scientific Session of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE).

The Acuson SC2000 system, release 1.5, will feature the eSie Measure Workflow Acceleration package, which provides fully automated measurements for routine echo exams. To streamline exam workflows, eSieScan workflow protocols are customizable according to user or department requirements, allowing for higher reproducibility and quality standards.

The Acuson SC2000 system also features transmit technology pioneered in the Acuson Sequoia ultrasound system. IN Focus coherent imaging enables the user to focus on the entire field of view instead of a single focal zone. In addition, non-stitched, real-time, full-volume imaging captures true physiologic information including color flow and accurate volume quantification for the left and right ventricle.

In addition, the system features the Rapid Stress volume stress echo application, with full-volume acquisition in one single heartbeat per stage and auto-extraction of reference planes for comparison. The resulting volume stress workflow enables the only volume stress echo solution for patients with arrhythmia. Consequently, faster acquisition time and comprehensive review of all wall segments in one single capture leads to potentially improved accuracy and time savings.
