ASE: Siemens demonstrates 3D ultrasound heart imaging technologies
Siemens Healthcare demonstrated its Acuson SC2000 volume imaging ultrasound system at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) meeting in Washington, D.C., this week.

The Acusion SC200 acquires non-stitched, real-time, full-volume 3D images of the heart, according to Siemens. New to the system is the INFocus coherent imaging technology, which delivers full-field transmit focusing and uses the power of 64 receive beams, the company said.

Siemens also showcased its Acuson AcuNav V catheter, a volume 3D intra-cardiac echocardiography catheter that delivers real-time volumetric information from inside the heart.
