Siemens Debuts Ultrasound System For Affordable Shared Service
Nov 03, 2014
· Cost-efficient ACUSON X600 system features advanced imaging technologies and optimized workflow
Siemens Healthcare announces the availability of the ACUSON X600™ – a cost-effective new ultrasound system boasting advanced technologies migrated from premium Siemens systems and workflow efficiencies for clinical applications in general imaging, obstetrics and gynecology and cardiology.
The latest addition to Siemens’ popular ACUSON X Family™ of mid-range ultrasound systems, the ACUSON X600 system is engineered on a robust system architecture and equipped with advanced imaging technologies such as real-time spatial compounding and tissue contrast technique for artifact reduction and improved border detection, offering improved detail and contrast resolution. Three new volume transducers provide enhanced 3D/4D image quality for clear visualization of complex fetal and maternal anatomy. A suite of syngo® knowledge-based workflow tools simplify measurements and reduce keystrokes and inter-operator variability to achieve a new level of productivity.
“An affordable ultrasound system with advanced technologies designed to reduce exam times and bolster efficiency, the ACUSON X600 system is ideally suited to help customers improve their bottom line in variety of clinical settings,” says Dr. Jeffrey Bundy, CEO, Siemens Ultrasound Business Unit.
Upgradable as needs and budgets change, the ACUSON X600 system will benefit from software and hardware technologies pioneered on higher-end Siemens systems, enabling the ACUSON X600 system to evolve to meet clinical demands in general imaging, OB/GYN and shared service environments for years of critical service.
