Compact ACUSON P300 provides reliable, high quality ultrasound imaging for a variety of clinical settings
The ACUSONTM P300 ultrasound system has been launched into the UK market by Siemens Healthcare at UKRC 2012. The portable unit is designed to meet the diverse imaging needs for a wide spectrum of patients, body types and clinical disciplines – from radiology and general imaging to cardiovascular imaging, from obstetrics and gynaecology, to specialty imaging including musculoskeletal, breast and small parts. It encompasses advanced ultrasound technology and excellent imaging performance in one portable package, thus enabling comprehensive patient care everywhere and anytime.
The P300 offers high image quality for both routine and specialty applications. It offers 13 multi-frequency transducers including specialty laparoscopic and intra-operative probes for interventional procedures. With a frequency range of up to 18 MHz, these multi-frequency transducers allow a selection of several imaging frequencies to meet different scan depth requirements without having to change transducers. The system enables linear, convex, phased array and endocavity transducers to provide scanning solutions for a wide range of clinical cases.
The P300 system also features advanced image optimization tools such as panoramic imaging, speckle reduction and spatial compounding. These optimize the imaging data automatically to improve diagnostic confidence and support efficient clinical workflow. Its design features a small footprint that makes it easy to store and move from room to room. It has a 15-inch XVGA LCD display, integrated power supply and two transducer ports for maximum ease of use.
“The new ACUSON P300 is an excellent solution for any department where space is limited and fast diagnosis is essential,” said Bernadette Leonard, Regional Sales and Clinical Applications Manager Ultrasound and Echocardiology Products at Siemens Healthcare. “The small footprint of this new product, alongside its portability, excellent image quality and broad spectrum of applications, make this system a great solution for almost any clinical environment.”
The ACUSON P300 system is characterised by its comprehensive capabilities, compact and elegant design and demonstrates Siemens’ competitiveness, a goal of the Healthcare Sector’s Agenda 2013 two-year global initiative.
