cid image003 jpg01CF6531SIEMENS, UK, May 1, 2014 - Saint Mary’s Hospital’s ultrasound department sees over 200 patients a day and the hospital delivers up to 9,000 babies a year.

Its latest new arrival is an ACUSON S1000™ from Siemens Healthcare to be used for obstetrics and gynaecology work.

The ACUSON S1000 replaces a previous-generation Siemens system and was chosen for its image quality and excellent ergonomics.

The system has been designed to enhance ease of access for the clinician and it is already reducing Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) in the department.

The S1000 also features the syngo® Auto OB Measurements application, providing the ability to auto-measure six major fetal structures required for routine biometric measurements.

This has been shown to provide up to a 75% reduction in keystrokes, helping to increase the speed of an examination and giving sonographers at the hospital the ability to generate semi-automatic fetal measurements.

Clinicians hope this will lead to a faster examination for the patient and an increasingly accurate procedure.

“We selected the ACUSON S1000 because it offers clear and precise imaging. The fetal heart settings and cardiac presets have been particularly useful in making a fast and accurate diagnosis, increasing staff confidence,” states Lesley Lorimer, Lead Sonographer at Saint Mary’s Hospital, part of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

“Our team have also benefited from the system’s excellent ergonomics, which has made users feel very comfortable performing procedures and has reduced RSI in the department.”

“This is Saint Mary’s Hospital’s first ACUSON S1000, joining an array of other Siemens systems in the ultrasound department. We are delighted that patients and sonographers have been able to benefit from its accurate imaging,” states Richard Evans, Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare.

Saint Mary’s Hospital is a large and modern hospital that deploys the most advanced technologies available in order to provide women, babies and children with the best possible care – we are proud to continue our long term imaging partnership with them.”
