Siemens Introduces Dedicated Ultrasound Solution for Obstetrics and Gynecology

14.09.2009
Acuson X300 Premium Edition (PE) – Women’s Imaging Features Latest Ultrasound Technologies to Improve Diagnostic Confidence and Clinical Workflow

Siemens Healthcare introduces a dedicated ultrasound solution for Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Acuson X300 ultrasound system, Premium Edition (PE) – Women’s Imaging at the International Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG).

The system features exceptional clinical performance across all modes, including 3D/4D imaging. Unique workflow tools such as automated biometry measurements of the fetus streamline the exam process for greater patient throughput. Compact, highly portable, and easy to use, the system accommodates the needs especially for private practices.

The Acuson X300 PE – Women’s Imaging system features syngo Auto OB measurements, a unique workflow tool that automates routine biometry measurements of the fetus. “Syngo Auto OB measurements is a knowledge-based workflow application that eliminates the time-consuming manual process of biometry measurements with a savings up to 75 percent of the keystrokes,” said Norbert Gaus, Chief Executive Officer of Ultrasound at Siemens Healthcare. “Not only does this help to accelerate workflow, this may also help to reduce repetitive stress injury (RSI) among users.”

The application also addresses the challenges related to user-dependence and variability as well as consistency and reproducibility in fetal biometry. Measurements are automatically saved into the patient’s report and include the biparietal diameter (BPD), head circumference (HC), abdominal circumference (AC), femur length (FL), and the humerus length (HL).

Innovative Applications

The Acuson X300 PE – Women’s Imaging system also offers Advanced fourSight volume imaging technology providing a complete 3D/4D solution. It delivers streamlined, intuitive workflow and advanced acquisition, data rendering and post-processing functionality for all examinations. In addition, the system offers syngo Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI) for fetal echocardiography, a sophisticated 2D tracking algorithm which provides insight into fetal myocardial mechanics.

“A comprehensive analysis of these heart functions may help detect fetal cardiac anomalies more easily during routine obstetrical exams,” said Gaus. “The earlier anomalies are detected and referred to a pediatric specialist, the better the clinical prognosis for the postnatal infant.”

To complete the solution, the Syngo fourSight ViewTool technology offers easy offline analysis, remote review, manipulation and storage of 3D/4D volumes, freeing the ultrasound system for additional patient exams.

Increased Diagnostic

ConfidenceThe Acuson X300 PE – Women’s Imaging features a suite of advanced imaging and transducer technologies to support breast, obstetrics and gynecological imaging. Key technologies include SieClear multi-view spatial compounding and Dynamic TCE tissue contrast enhancement technology for improved contrast resolution and border enhancement in subtle tissue textures such as the endometrium. Further image enhancement is achieved through TGO tissue grayscale optimization technology which provides one button optimization of B-mode images to shorten exam time, reduces repetitive motion and provides greater consistency between users.

The unique ErgoDynamic imaging system design of the Acuson X300 PE — Women’s Imaging system includes a number of practical ergonomic features, including an adjustable control panel and articulating flat panel display, providing optimal positioning of the system in tight spaces. Its small, lightweight transducers complete the ergonomic package with advanced features such as Hanafy lens and MultiHertz multiple frequency imaging technologies, which provide excellent penetration with reduced scanning pressure. From a customizable patient entry screen to a 12-second system power-up for fast access, the system is engineered to easily address the day-to-day clinical challenges in Women’s Imaging.

The Siemens Healthcare Sector is one of the world's largest suppliers to the healthcare industry and a trendsetter in medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics, medical information technology and hearing aids. Siemens is the only company to offer customers products and solutions for the entire range of patient care from a single source – from prevention and early detection to diagnosis, and on to treatment and aftercare. By optimizing clinical workflows for the most common diseases, Siemens also makes healthcare faster, better and more cost-effective. Siemens Healthcare employs some 49,000 employees worldwide and operates in over 130 countries. In fiscal year 2008 (to September 30), the Sector posted revenue of 11.2 billion euros and profit of 1.2 billion euros.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
