Siemens releases new ultrasound system
Siemens Healthcare introduced its Acuson S2000 ultrasound system–Women’s Imaging this week at the 19th World Congress of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) in Hamburg, Germany.

The system has acoustic technologies for 2D, Doppler and 3D/4D imaging requirements in maternal-fetal medicine, OB/GYN and breast applications, including automated breast volume scanning, according to the company. The new ultrasound also features 3D Dynamic tissue contrast enhancement (TCE) technology, which sharpens borders and reduces speckle and noise in the entire volume, the company said. Anatomic border definition and tissue contrast is improved through Advanced SieClear spatial compounding and electronic beam steering, which can acquire overlapping images from different view angles, Siemens said.
