Siemens introduces compact portable US
Siemens Healthcare has launched the Acuson P300 ultrasound system, a compact portable device designed for various clinical disciplines, including radiology and general imaging, cardiovascular imaging, obstetrics and gynecology and specialty imaging.

The system offers 13 multifrequency transducers and image optimization technologies to support routine and specialty application needs. Its tools include panoramic imaging, speckle reduction and spatial compounding, Erlangen, Germany-based Siemens said.

The Acuson P300 includes laparoscopic and intra-operative probes for interventional procedures. With a frequency range of up to 18 MHz, these multi-frequency transducers allow for several imaging frequencies to meet different scan depth requirements. The system enables linear, convex, phased array and endocavity transducers.

The system also has a 15-inch XVGA LCD display, integrated power supply and two transducer ports.
