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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
