Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is showcasing its premium diagnostic imaging solutions in ultrasound, digital radiography and mobile computed tomography at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2020 Annual Meeting from November 29 to December 5.
“This year has been a pivotal year for Samsung in moving forward new solutions across a variety of areas. We are looking forward to putting on display our advancements within ultrasound, digital radiography and mobile CT modalities,” stated Yongkwan Kim, Head of Health & Medical Equipment Business at Samsung Electronics and CEO of Samsung Medison. “Our innovative solutions demonstrate Samsung’s commitment to leveraging our innovation engine to better address the needs of healthcare providers and their patients.”
Samsung will showcase the RS85 Prestige, which is designed to deliver outstanding scanning performance with consistent image clarity, depth of penetration and sensitivity to perfusion of blood flow to enhance abdominal and breast examination functionality. Above all, the RS85 Prestige delivers real-time images to clinicians, which is essential in ultrasound imaging.
Additional features deliver simplified workflow and accurate diagnoses:
Samsung is showcasing its premium digital mobile x-ray, the AccE GM85, which delivers unparalleled performance by improving diagnostic confidence and workflow. The AccE GM85, powered by a lithium-ion battery, in particular has demonstrated unprecedented performance during the recent pandemic. The AccE GM85 is suited to general imaging needs, and its practicality during the COVID-19 pandemic is highlighted through its unique feature set.
Samsung will be introducing two new enhanced software options for its line of DR equipment, including:
Featured at RSNA are BodyTom® Elite and OmniTom® – mobile whole-body and head CTs. These mobile CTs can be used at the point of care, whenever imaging is needed to determine the ideal treatment strategy for a patient – without restrictions of physical space and power. Samsung’s NeuroLogica mobile CT devices are used by numerous leading institutions in intensive care units, emergency rooms, orthopedic and neurosurgery rooms, brachytherapy suites and ambulances.
In addition, Samsung will be presenting a Photon Counting Detector (PCD)2 – cutting-edge technology that measures photons emitted by X-rays. The PCD, currently under development, has the potential to allow for dose optimization, allowing the user to reduce exposure while maintaining image quality, or increase the image quality by keeping dose equivalence compared to currently used CT detectors. The PCD is expected to deliver increased data mining capabilities from multiple-energy detection and contribute to the improved utility and efficacy of AI applications. Expanding from this, Samsung is closely collaborating with a major university hospital in the United States.
Samsung will host three Industry Sessions during RSNA:
1 The S-Vue™ outcome is based on limited phantom and clinical study results. Only routine PA chest radiography and abdominal radiography for average adults and pediatric abdominal, chest, skull radiography were studied, excluding pediatric patients under 1 month old. (FDA cleared - K172229, K182183) In practice, the values of dose reduction may vary accordingly.
