Siemens welcome two new additions to the ‘S’ Class family
9 May 2012 - Siemens Healthcare will be showcasing the ACUSON S3000™ and the ACUSON S1000™ diagnostic ultrasound systems at a special launch event to be held on the 25th June during the UKRC Conference Event in Manchester. It will be the first time the ACUSON S3000™ will be unveiled to clinicians in the UK and delegates will be able to explore the system and speak with Siemens experts about functionality and benefits.
The ACUSON S3000 is Siemens’ ultra-premium ultrasound system and features eSie Fusion™ imaging software and CT and MRI multimodality review capabilities. CT and MR images can be imported rapidly for easy side-by-side comparison for increased diagnostic confidence during clinical analysis. A range of new applications are available for the ACUSON S3000, including Virtual Touch™ tissue IQ, which provides simultaneous displays of colour-coded tissue stiffness and shear wave velocity measurements in a single image. This application allows visual assessment of lesions and stiffness characteristics and supplies simultaneous quantitative evaluation in a simplified process.
The ACUSON S1000 is a cost-effective ultrasound system that confidently handles a variety of disciplines and patient types. It is equipped with a suite of transducers that are capable of performing up to 27 different examination types for ultimate flexibility. It is suitable for a range of purposes from general imaging, gynaecology, obstetrics, paediatric and gynaecology. The ACUSON S1000 also features elasticity imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasound capabilities and can be used for intracardiac echocardiography using the ACUSON AcuNav catheter.
The ACUSON S2000™ with its unique HD Transducer technology completes the ‘S’ Class family and will also be available at UKRC on stand 73, 25th to 27th June in Manchester.
“The ACUSON S1000 and ACUSON S3000 systems are valuable additions to the Siemens ultrasound portfolio,” states Bernadette Leonard, Regional Sales Manager and Clinical Applications Manager, Ultrasound and Echocardiology Products at Siemens Healthcare. “Both are flexible, high performance imaging solutions designed to increase diagnostic confidence and streamline departmental workflow. Clinicians familiar with the existing range of ACUSON systems will appreciate the similar user-friendly capabilities and ergonomic design.”
