Siemens Expands Acuson S Ultrasound for Easier Access to New Innovations

March 12, 2012 — Siemens Healthcare announced shipment of the Acuson S1000 ultrasound system, a premium ultrasound platform. The Acuson S1000 system expands access to imaging performance at a very low cost of ownership. This system encompasses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, stellar imaging performance, and versatile applications to provide better patient care. Featuring a complete suite of transducers and capable of performing 27 different exam types, the Acuson S1000 system accommodates a wide spectrum of patients and body types. The Acuson S1000 system is one of the product solutions of Siemens Healthcare’s Agenda 2013 investment program.

Sharing the advanced system design of the industry-leading Acuson S2000 ultrasound system, the Acuson S1000 system produces a high-fidelity ultrasound signal while seamlessly running multiple real-time applications, improving diagnostic confidence in both routine and complex diagnosis. The system also supports a full range of advanced and proven Siemens ultrasound technologies and features, including strain imaging capabilities with eSie Touch elasticity imaging, contrast-enhanced ultrasound with Cadence contrast pulse sequencing technology, and intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) using the Acuson AcuNav ultrasound catheter. Workflow-enhancing applications such as eSieScan workflow protocols and syngo Auto OB measurements are also supported. The new Acuson S1000 ultrasound system features a robust set of applications ranging from radiology and general imaging, including shared service, to obstetrics, gynecology (OB/GYN), and pediatric imaging.

“Our customers and partners demand easy accessibility to state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, premium image performance and versatile applications at a price point that meets their clinical and budgetary needs,” said Jeffrey Bundy, CEO Siemens Healthcare ultrasound business unit. “The Acuson S1000 system delivers on that customer requirement and will continue to do so for years to come.”

Many of the most powerful, clinically proven innovations and applications migrated from the Acuson S Family have been integrated into the Acuson S1000 ultrasound system. Strain imaging capabilities with eSie Touch elasticity imaging assess relative tissue stiffness, enhance mass detection and visualize disease progression for a more informed diagnosis. Supporting a variety of transducers, clinicians can use this technology on a wider range of exam types. Workflow-enhancing tools such as the eSie Scan workflow protocols improve exam consistency as well as knowledge-based applications to automate fetal measurements (syngo Auto OB measurements) and to trace measurements with area, circumference, linear and volume results (syngo eSieCalcs native tracing software). Contrast-enhanced ultrasound with Cadence contrast pulse sequencing technology1 enhances lesion detection with highly sensitive and specific contrast agent signals. And intracardiac echocardiography with the Acuson AcuNav ultrasound catheter enables physicians to perform a complete ultrasound examination during interventional procedures and before the patient leaves the catheterization or electrophysiology lab.

The Acuson S1000 ultrasound system offers multiple configuration options to support a facility’s clinical needs and budget requirements. It supports a comprehensive suite of transducers and exam types to accommodate a wide range of body types, including difficult-to-image bariatric patients. Users can move easily between the Acuson S Family systems, since no learning curve exists and Siemens transducers are compatible with all Acuson S Family solutions. An upgrade path to Siemens’ ultra-premium technologies is currently available exclusively within the Acuson S Family of products.
