Siemens rolls out ultrasound upgrade

Siemens Medical Solutions has introduced its inMotion upgrade for its Sonoline G50 and G60 ultrasound scanners. The upgrade, on display at this week's 52nd annual clinical meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in Philadelphia, offers imaging performance and workflow improvements, according to the Malvern, PA-based vendor.

The upgrade includes the vendor's fourSight four-dimensional ultrasound imaging technology, which features Siemens' C6F3 fourSight 4D transducer. In addition, the EV8F5 4D transducer is available on the G50 system only, Siemens said. The feature allows for accurate size information to be acquired in 3D, including a measurement tool for 3D imaging, according to the vendor.

Other transducers now available with the upgrade include the BE9-4 biplane endorectal transducer and the VF13-5SP transducer for specialty applications, Siemens said. The upgrade also includes enhanced digital clip capture technology and new connectivity features.

Other purchasable options include Axius automatic OB calipers for standardized biometry measurements and support for DICOM modality performed procedure step (MPPS), according to the vendor. InMotion begins shipping to customers this month.
