Siemens unveils new ultrasound imaging technology
The new system is designed in a compact notebook format of 15-inches, weighing under 8 kilograms
Singapore: Siemens healthcare has recently launched two new premium ultrasound imaging technologies that can be used for emergency medicine and general imaging. The company said in its recent press release that the technology promises faster and sharper ultrasound images compared to conventional imaging systems.
The new ultrasound system features high performance imaging tools migrated from Siemens' Acuson S Family of premium ultrasound systems such as Advanced SieClear spatial compounding and Dynamic TCE tissue contrast enhancement technology for excellent 2D color doppler image quality.
The company further mentioned that the new system is designed in a compact notebook format of 15-inches (38 cm), weighing under 8 kilograms.The device is equipped with a battery that offers up to 60 minutes of scanning time.
Mr Jeffrey Bundy, CEO of the Siemens Healthcare Ultrasound Business Unit, said, "The compact Acuson P500 system, Frosk edition is ideal for any setting where performance is critical and space is limited-for instance in emergency settings. The combination of our two new motion controlling technologies designed specifically for this platform offer unprecedented image quality and ease of use, meeting the needs of general imaging and point-of-care ultrasound."
Besides emergency medicine and acute care, the new system applies to all usual applications for general imaging, including abdominal, small parts, renal, pelvic, vascular, 2D obstetrics, and gynecology or basic evaluation of cardiac functions.
