Siemens Healthcare celebrated the grand opening of its new ultrasound systems factory in suburban Philadelphia. The 12,000-square-foot facility will manufacture Siemens’ new ACUSON Freestyle ultrasound.
The new manufacturing site is Siemens’ second ultrasound factory in the US. The company’s Buffalo Grove, Ill, facility houses an assembly line for Siemens’ ACUSON S family of ultrasound systems.
The ACUSON Freestyle system’s wireless transducer technology offers greater flexibility and ease in obtaining accurate transducer placement, and simplifies sterilization in interventional settings. The ACUSON Freestyle system will enable ultrasound technology to be used more readily in a variety of point-of-care applications, including interventional radiology, critical care, anesthesiology, and emergency care.”
