The latest member of the Siemens ultrasound product family, the ACUSONS2000(TM) ultrasound system, provides excellent gynecologic and fetal imagingfor both 2D and 3D/4D acquisition, as well as 3D Dynamic TCE tissue contrastenhancement technology -- an industry exclusive -- for enhanced anatomicborder and contrast resolution. In addition, the ACUSON S2000 features acomprehensive set of applications in the arena of volume imaging:
In addition, the ACUSON S2000 features syngo Auto OB measurements that usesophisticated pattern recognition technology in all automatic biometricmeasurements. Especially developed to enhance the workflow in obstetrics, thesoftware delivers increased measurement accuracy and consistency.
Siemens will also showcase its smallest and the world's first pocketultrasound system: the ACUSON P10(TM). A 2008 recipient of Medical DesignExcellence Awards (MDEA), the ACUSON P10 weighs in at only 1.6 pounds and issmall enough to fit in a lab coat pocket. It is intended for use in routineand urgent care settings, particularly in obstetrics, emergency care andcardiology. In labor and delivery, the ACUSON P10 system gives physicians andmidwives a quick overview of fetal positioning, amniotic fluid volume,placental location, abnormalities and miscarriage.
"The system is quickly becoming the assessment tool of choice forclinicians around the world," said Klaus Hambuechen, chief executive officer,Ultrasound, Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. "Instead of having to get thepatient to the technology, the ACUSON P10 system brings the technology to thepatient. This makes additional information available on a patient's condition.In addition, it can save critical minutes, especially when the patient is indistress."
