New Ultrasound System Now Shipping

March 28, 2008 – Siemens is now shipping the new ACUSON X300 ultrasound system geared for cardiovascular and general imaging applications, reportedly encompassing high-quality color and power Doppler, 2D-mode imaging, steerable continuous wave and pulse-wave Doppler capabilities.

The new ACUSON X300 ultrasound system applies to both general imaging and cardiovascular applications in one package. The system includes capabilities for cardiac assessment, such as syngo Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI) technology for detailed assessment of myocardial mechanics, and syngo Auto Left Heart that uses progressive pattern recognition to measure ejection fraction and volumes of the left ventricle and atrium.

The company’s ACUSON X300 PE features capabilities for comprehensive cardiac assessment: syngo Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI) technology for detailed assessment of myocardial mechanics, and syngo Auto Left Heart with progressive pattern recognition for expert-like measurements of ejection fraction and volumes of the left ventricle and atrium extend routine evaluation. The system also supports comprehensive cardiac imaging applications with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for evaluation of heart valves and chambers, Left Ventricular Opacification (LVO) for LV chamber wall definition, as well as intracardiac procedures with the ACUSON AcuNav ultrasound catheter.
