Siemens Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner  
Siemens Healthcare (Booth 993) is presenting a new product portfolio featuring workflow-enhancing applications across portable, point-of-care systems, and the Acuson class of products.
The Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner, which is pending FDA approval, surveys and acquires full-field sonographic volumes for review and diagnosis of the breast. The system features an integrated suite design combining the Acuson S2000 ultrasound system and a column stand with an arm assembly holding a transducer pod.
The company also is highlighting its tissue strain analytics, a new ultrasound application that enables visual or numerical measurements of the mechanical stiffness of tissue. Tissue strain analytics features three applications: Virtual Touch tissue imaging on the Acuson S2000 ultrasound system, allows clinicians to create a relative stiffness map for a region of interest; Virtual Touch tissue quantification, which is an application that provides a numerical value of shear wave speed related to tissue stiffness at an anatomical location; and eSie Touch elasticity imaging, available on both the Acuson Antares and Acuson S2000 systems, enables high-resolution elastography using both superficial and endocavity transducers.
