Siemens Launches New Ultrasound Systems at ECR 2023
Siemens Healthineers introduced the Acuson Sequoia Crown Edition and the Acuson Sequoia Select Edition at the 2023 European Congress of Radiology in Vienna. According to the company, the products are not commercially available in all countries.
Both are powered by Siemens Healthineers flagship BioAcoustic Imaging architecture that delivers state of the art image enhancement and expanded applications. Each edition includes new advancements in the platform design, display technologies, and improvements in ergonomics and workflows.
The Acuson Sequoia Crown Edition and Acuson Sequoia Select Edition feature a new BARCO monitor, providing highest fidelity from exam room to reading room, as well as improved quality assurance, calibration, and asset management capabilities. The improved ergonomics of both new systems include an enhanced user interface to provide access to innovations in workflow, penetration, and quantitative ultrasound.
The Ultrasound Derived Fat Fraction (UDFF) features are expanded on the Acuson Sequoia’s Flagship Series, offering innovative technology on three abdominal transducers, the 5C1, 9C2 and DAX, to aid clinicians in the early detection of NAFLD for nearly any patient body habitus. UDFF enables the clinician to quickly and non-invasively classify hepatic steatosis with a clear cut-off value of >5%, offering a similar clinical utility compared to MRI-PDFF.
“The Acuson Sequoia Flagship series – the Acuson Sequoia Crown Edition and Acuson Sequoia Select Edition – continues to expand the Ultrasound family of products, demonstrating our continued commitment to innovation and providing access to care to everyone, everywhere,” says Ajay Gannerkote, President of Ultrasound, Siemens Healthineers. “The ability to offer two new editions, from our ultra-premium Acuson Sequoia Crown Edition to a customizable, scalable Acuson Sequoia Select Edition, gives clinicians more value without compromising clinical performance.”
