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: Hamburg and Kiel researchers observe spontaneous occurrence of skyrmions in atomically thin cobalt films

Since their experimental discovery, magnetic skyrmions - tiny magnetic knots - have moved into the focus of research. Scientists from Hamburg and Kiel have now been able to show that individual magnetic skyrmions with a diameter of only a few nanometres can be stabilised in magnetic metal films even without an external magnetic field. They report on their discovery in the journal Nature Communications.

The existence of magnetic skyrmions as particle-like objects was predicted 30 years ago by theoretical physicists, but could only be proven experimentally in...

Im Focus: Physicists create world's smallest engine

Theoretical physicists at Trinity College Dublin are among an international collaboration that has built the world's smallest engine - which, as a single calcium ion, is approximately ten billion times smaller than a car engine.

Work performed by Professor John Goold's QuSys group in Trinity's School of Physics describes the science behind this tiny motor.

Im Focus: Quantum computers to become portable

Together with the University of Innsbruck, the ETH Zurich and Interactive Fully Electrical Vehicles SRL, Infineon Austria is researching specific questions on the commercial use of quantum computers. With new innovations in design and manufacturing, the partners from universities and industry want to develop affordable components for quantum computers.

Ion traps have proven to be a very successful technology for the control and manipulation of quantum particles. Today, they form the heart of the first...

Im Focus: Towards an 'orrery' for quantum gauge theory

Experimental progress towards engineering quantized gauge fields coupled to ultracold matter promises a versatile platform to tackle problems ranging from condensed-matter to high-energy physics

The interaction between fields and matter is a recurring theme throughout physics. Classical cases such as the trajectories of one celestial body moving in the...

Im Focus: A miniature stretchable pump for the next generation of soft robots

Soft robots have a distinct advantage over their rigid forebears: they can adapt to complex environments, handle fragile objects and interact safely with humans. Made from silicone, rubber or other stretchable polymers, they are ideal for use in rehabilitation exoskeletons and robotic clothing. Soft bio-inspired robots could one day be deployed to explore remote or dangerous environments.

Most soft robots are actuated by rigid, noisy pumps that push fluids into the machines' moving parts. Because they are connected to these bulky pumps by tubes,...
