siemens acuson x600Siemens has debuted the Acuson X600, the latest addition to its Acuson X family of mid-range ultrasound systems. The cost-effective system includes technologies migrated from Siemens’ premium ultrasound units, with clinical applications in general imaging, obstetrics and gynecology, and cardiology.

Features include real-time spatial compounding and tissue contrast technique for artifact reduction and improved border detection, as well as three new volume transducers which provide enhanced 3D/4D image quality for clear visualization of complex fetal and maternal anatomy. A suite of knowledge-based workflow tools reduce keystrokes and minimize interoperator variability for improved 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,” said Jeffrey Bundy, MD, CEO of the Siemens Ultrasound Business Unit.

The system will be upgradeable with future software and hardware technologies developed on higher-end Siemens systems. Due to regulatory constraints, not all features may be available in each country. For more information, visit Siemens Healthcare.
