New Features Enhance Left Ventricular Function Assessment


The Encompass III, the latest in a series of three releases from Siemens Medical Solutions, enhances the ergonomics and workflow features offered on both the Encompass I and II releases for the Sequoia platform. Offering physicians clinical application solutions and workflow features, the Encompass III includes a new means to assess the heart's contraction mechanics using ultrasound information called Axius Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI). With it, clinicians can see a graphical presentation of tissue motion using arrows to display direction and relative velocity of motion in one ventricle, providing them the ability to see a "freeze frame" of motion at any point in the cardiac cycle.
The release also includes Axius Auto EF, a proprietary computer-aided detection technology that automatically calculates ejection fraction without the need for operator interaction. Other features include a set of resynchronization tools based on Doppler Tissue Imaging technology and fourSight real-time 3-D imaging technology for transthoracic applications with a volumetric calculations package.
