Siemens Introduces ACUSON S2000 Ultrasound System, Release 2.0

Malvern, Pa., July 7, 2010 – Siemens Healthcare announces availability of the 2.0 release of its ACUSON S2000™ ultrasound system, a premium performance platform that features powerful imaging performance and penetrating insights to achieve sound diagnosis. The multi-specialty system offers advanced applications, such as Virtual Touch™ HD* technology, the second generation implementation of Acoustic Radiation Forced Impulse (ARFI)* imaging, as well as Cadence™ contrast agent technology** and the most comprehensive 3D/4D imaging capabilities to provide penetrating insight into complex anatomy.

The ACUSON S2000 system represents the pinnacle of innovative technology, workflow-enhancing clinical applications, and state-of-the-art ergonomic design. Covering the entire continuum of care from screening to diagnosis to therapy and follow-up, the new ACUSON S2000 ultrasound system features applications across general imaging, including obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), as well as vascular and cardiac imaging.

Next Generation Tissue Strain Analytics
Similar to a physical palpation exam, tissue strain analytics adds an independent parameter to the existing morphological diagnostic process by interrogating and measuring the mechanical strain properties or stiffness of tissue often correlated with pathology. Siemens’ implementation of ARFI, Virtual Touch™ Tissue Imaging and Virtual Touch Tissue Quantification, have been further optimized on the ACUSON S2000 2.0 ultrasound system to perform in high definition (HD).
