Siemens has unveiled a new version of its ACUSON SC2000 advanced ultrasound imaging system. Version 1.5 of the popular system that’s specifically targeted at the echocardiography market, now comes with a new 5 MHz transesophageal probe and all the latest applicable Siemens transmission and detection technologies.
To streamline exam workflows both on the user level and in the entire lab, the ACUSON SC2000 system offers eSieScan™ workflow protocols, which bring higher reproducibility and quality standards to the echocardiography workflow. Customizable according to user or department requirements, eSieScan workflow protocols dramatically reduce the need for user interaction and the number of keystrokes during the imaging process.
Building upon Siemens’ patented technologies, the ACUSON SC2000 system improves diagnostic confidence with the superior 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. By using the power of 64 parallel receive beams, this technology dramatically improves image quality at all depths without any user intervention to ideally display the cardiac structure and motion for superior diagnostic volumetric imaging. IN Focus technology drives the imaging power of the 4Z1, 4V1 and the V5M transducer.
Siemens’ Echo in a Heartbeat™ technology delivers vastly more diagnostic information than today’s conventional systems. Easily integrated into a routine adult echocardiography exam, it enables new workflow pathways to improve diagnostic efficiency. Non-stitched, real-time full-volume imaging provides wider access to patients and 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.
