German Based Medical Tech Company Siemens Healthineers recently launched “Acuson Sequoia” a new imaging ultrasound system which enables imaging of different sized patients with unchanging clarity. The newly developed devices provide advanced high-powered architecture Deep Abdominal Transducer (DAX) and other improvements to elastography and contrast-enhanced ultrasound. To enable better diagnosis the device can produce penetration of up to 40cm to offer high-resolution imaging.

Robert Thompson, Siemens Healthineers Ultrasound Head said: “Ultrasound imaging has been messed by variability. Patients’ varied physical characteristics and user-dependent variabilities can impact a clinician’s ability to deliver an accurate diagnosis. With the new Acuson Sequoia, we provide users with a solution that enables real-time imaging for varying patient types, including those with high BMI, without sacrificing image quality and potentially reducing the need for repeat scans and unclear diagnoses.”

 Acuson Sequoia is developed to adapt to ‘BioAcoustic Variations’ of each individual patient with varying stiffness, tissue densities, and absorption levels. The new system removes the need to adapt the focal point of the scan due to its efficiency in providing high-resolution InFocus imaging. The new technology BioAcoustic also magnifies Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) bubble longevity compared to ACUSON Sequoia 512.
