ACC: Siemens releases volume ultrasound
Siemens Healthcare showcased the latest release of Acuson SC2000 volume imaging ultrasound system at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in New Orleans.

The Acuson SC2000 system delivers the same detail resolution across the entire image without sacrificing frame rates, Siemens said. It incorporates In Focus Technology to enable the user to focus on the entire field of view instead of a single focal zone. Its eSie workflow package provides fully automated measurements for routine echo exams, which brings higher reproducibility and quality standards to the echocardiography workflow, Siemens said.

Furthermore, Echo in a Heartbeat real-time full-volume imaging capability acquires the full volume of the heart at a 90-by-90-degree angle and 16-cm depth at up to 40 volumes per second.
