New Siemens ultrasound laptop handles mobile cardiology tasks

Siemens Healthcare Deutschland : 14 November, 2007  (New Product)
Siemens Medical Solutions unveiled its new Acuson P50 laptop-based ultrasound system at Medica in Dusseldorf, Germany for cardiology applications.
The Acuson P50, with integrated echocardiography software, is specially designed for mobile applications in cardiology as well as vascular applications and use in the operating room and anaesthesiology departments.

The P50 can also be used as a standard Internet-enabled PC that also runs common office applications. With an array of transducers, the system lets physicians bring Ultrasound anywhere it is needed.

The system provides superb image resolution in B mode and in colour Doppler mode. The system also includes an integrated stress echo function. The unit can run several cardiology application packages including syngo Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI) and syngo Arterial Health Package (AHP) that can used to determine a patient’s vascular age. Together with syngo Auto Left Heart, these applications turn the P50 into an ideal solution that simplifies and accelerates the workflow in echocardiography and vascular diagnosis.

The Acuson P50 is a Microsoft Windows-based PC equipped with such additional functions as Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office PowerPoint and many other special image viewing programs. The system’s flexible architecture provides for excellent Ultrasound images and gives users a number of tools for image post-processing, for generating protocols or for accessing the Internet for additional research. During the examination, the physician is able to view other images, look at technical papers or clarify abnormalities before he making a diagnosis. This gives physicians more flexibility during the diagnostic process.

The Acuson P50 weighs slightly more than 5kg and is easily transported in a laptop bag. When not connected to the Internet, it has up to two hours of battery life, making it fully equipped for emergency situations. The P50 utilises an Apple MacBook laptop with 2 GB RAM, a 160 GB hard disk. The laptop features a 2.0GHz Intel Dual-Core Pentium M processor. System delivery will begin in December 2007.
