Siemens ultrasound supports medical teams at world-class tennis championships

Siemens Healthcare UK : 20 June, 2008  (Application Story)
While the top seeds, including world number two Rafael Nadal and defending champion Andy Roddick, battled it out for the top prizes at the 2008 Artois Championships at The Queen’s Club in London last week, the Doctors Room was on standby throughout the tournament to assess strains or any injuries.
The Acuson S2000, a newly launched and advanced Ultrasound solution from Siemens was in place to provide imaging assistance and ensure medical treatment could be administered without delay.

During the second day of the tournament, French tennis star Sebastien Grosjean was forced to retire due to a muscle injury in his left leg. He was given prompt medical attention in the Doctors Room where he was scanned on the Acuson S2000.

“The image quality of the Acuson S2000 is perfect, and has allowed us to clearly examine sports injuries throughout the tournament,” said Dr John Gayner, tournament doctor for the Artois Championships. “When Sebastien Grosjean was forced to retire with a left leg injury, we were able to carry out an Ultrasound on site. In the past we would have had to wait for the results of an MRI scan to obtain the necessary images. The capabilities of the Acuson S2000 meant that it could provide an accurate diagnosis immediately.”

“The Acuson S2000 provides superior images and ensures rapid diagnosis at the point of care so that at the tennis championships players had the highest standard of care on site,” said Andrew Pattison, director of diagnostic Ultrasound and women’s health at Siemens. “The Acuson S2000 is a state-of-the-art product recently launched into the UK marketplace and offers versatility inside the traditional hospital environment and outside such as at sporting events or injury clinics.”

The Acuson S2000 Ultrasound system draws together the latest imaging innovations to optimise workflow, simplify examinations and is readily prepared for the future of Ultrasound evolution. The system is suitable for all areas of imaging including musculoskeletal, obstetrics and gynaecology as well as vascular and cardiac imaging. The system provides advanced functionality for clinical diagnosis and is a future proof solution for the imaging arena, offering pioneering strain imaging and quantification capabilities as well as the world’s first implementation of Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse assessment.
