The latest version of Siemens Healthcare’s Acuson SC2000 volume imaging ultrasound system has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA and is now commercially available in the U.S.

Release 2.0 of the Acuson SC2000 echocardiography system offers a number of new applications, including the quantification of the 3D proximal isovelocity surface area (PISA) to assess the severity of valvular disease and volumetric color Doppler. The system also supports volumetric intracardiac echocardiography, enabling integration of the Acuson AcuNav ultrasound catheters, according to Siemens.

Acuson SC2000 also enables the production of real-time, full-volume cardiac images in one heart cycle.
