Siemens Introduces New Workflow Solutions for Ultrasound Systems at AIUM 2006


Off-line Image Analysis Software for ACUSON Antares Ultrasound System, Premium Edition Showcased - New Release for SONOLINE G60 S Ultrasound System Highlighted.

Washington, Mar 23, 2006, Offering solutions with unequaled clinical value, performance and innovative workflow advancements, Siemens Medical Solutions will unveil release 10.0 for its multi-specialty SONOLINE G60 STM ultrasound system at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine meeting, March 23-26, 2006 in Washington D.C., (booth # 307). The company will also showcase the new, off-line image analysis software called fourSightTM ViewTool* for the ACUSON AntaresTM ultrasound system, premium edition, which significantly helps increase patient throughput.

The release for the G60 S system enhances fourSight 4D ultrasound imaging technology for easy 4D volume acquisition and workflow support, enabling reduced exam acquisition and post processing time. Additionally, TGOTM tissue grayscale optimization technology on the G60 S system produces consistent high quality imaging at the touch of a button, and the CH5-2 transducer with Hanafy Lens transducer technology is now available for superb performance in deep abdominal and Ob/Gyn exams.

“The 4D imaging on the newly released G60 S system is remarkable because it is user-friendly and produces outstanding images consistently,” said Fara Tyus, RT, RDMS, chief sonographer, Comprehensive Obstetrics and Gynecology of Granbury, Texas. “The acquisition mode enables us to see the image as we acquire it, resulting in a much improved quality image in less time, and it’s more helpful in diagnosing fetal anomalies compared with traditional 2D imaging.”

The fourSight ViewTool on the ACUSON Antares ultrasound system, premium edition, offers physicians the convenience of reviewing and analyzing 2D and 3D/4D volume data on a PC or laptop running Windows XP Professional®, without interrupting the department’s daily patient throughput. The premium edition delivers a higher level of diagnostic confidence with excellent 2D, 4D, color Doppler and contrast agent imaging, and provides integrated tools for clinical practices and research institutions.

Additionally, the company will introduce its next generation release for the ACUSON CypressTM cardiovascular system, which leverages the power and efficacy of the highly portable system. The feature release includes streamlined workflow through its home-base user design; a high-resolution, 12-inch tilt screen LCD with an integrated design for console or tabletop use; and a comprehensive set of cardiac vascular applications. The new Cypress system release, PLUS, which is designed for both hospital and private office environments, will be available to customers at the end of April 2006.

“It is our goal to provide customers with improved workflow solutions by offering integrated ultrasound system technologies and enhancements, as well as new clinical applications for better diagnostic medical care,” said Klaus Hambuechen, president, Ultrasound Division, Siemens Medical Solutions. “The latest releases for our suite of ultrasound systems leverage the power and efficacy of our technological advancements and significantly improve clinical workflow and outcomes for our customers.”
