Saving precious time: Siemens' new ultrasound system for faster imaging

04.03.2015
  • Premium imaging technologies in a hand-carried device
  • Intuitive user interface for easy and fast examinations
  • Reliable results in any clinical environment

ECR 2015: Extension Expo A, Entrance Level, Booth #11

At this year's European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria, Siemens Healthcare introduces its new hand-carried Acuson P500 ultrasound system, Frosk edition. It allows reliable and fast imaging by offering new and time-tested high-end imaging technology in a compact and easy-to-use device, making it particular suitable for the use in the emergency medicine and general imaging.


High imaging performance in a small package

When every second counts, clear image quality means precious time saved. Hence Siemens' newest member in the Acuson P Family of portable ultrasound systems, the Acuson P500, Frosk edition introduces two new premium technologies that continuously provide sharp ultrasound images, regardless of patient and probe motion: Dynamic Persistence and patent-pending Auto Flash Artifact Suppression. Both technologies were specially designed for the new system and work together to detect movements that affect image quality, and automatically reduce noise while simultaneously enhancing color sensitivity for clear images. Additionally, the new ultrasound system features established high-performance imaging tools migrated from Siemens' Acuson S Family of premium ultrasound systems such as Advanced SieClear spatial compounding and Dynamic TCE tissue contrast enhancement technology for excellent 2D color Doppler image quality.

All this comes in a compact notebook format of 15-inches (38 cm), weighing under 8 kilograms. Equipped with a battery that offers up to 60 minutes of scanning time, the new platform can be easily carried and positioned in any clinical environment, helping clinicians make quick decisions even in difficult scanning conditions. With a standard rapid boot-up feature, the system is ready for scanning in less than 30 seconds.

Enhanced ease-of-use due to intuitive touch screen

The Acuson P500 system's clear user interface is easy to learn and operate for users of all experience levels. It features a highly sensitive touch screen display with advanced infrared (IR) technology for accurate gesturing. A dual interface control panel offers flexible use of the touch screen or a traditional control panel based on each user's own scanning preferences, allowing them to spend less time on the system and more time on the patient."The compact Acuson P500 system, Frosk edition is ideal for any setting where performance is critical and space is limited - for instance in emergency settings." says Jeffrey Bundy, CEO of the Siemens Healthcare Ultrasound Business Unit. "The combination of our two new motion controlling technologies designed specifically for this platform offer unprecedented image quality and ease of use, meeting the needs of general imaging and point-of-care ultrasound."

Besides emergency medicine and acute care, the new system applies to all usual applications for general imaging, including abdominal, small parts, renal, pelvic, vascular, 2D obstetrics and gynecology or basic evaluation of cardiac functions.

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
