The Acuson P10 hand held diagnostic ultrasound system is the smallest ultrasoundsystem in the world. A little larger than a common PDA and only about 700 grams in weight, it fits easily into a lab coat pocket. It is intended for complementary initial diagnostic care and triage, particularly in cardiology and emergency care. Available anytime, anywhere, the Acuson P10 can be used by physicians and medical personnel in a number of environments including intensive care units, ambulances and medevac helicopters, but also for bedside monitoring. In addition to cardiac and emergency care, the P10 pocket ultrasound system offers applications in other medical specialties, most notably obstetrics where it can be used in labor and delivery.

The Acuson X150 system uniquely combines high performance, an easy-to-use design, and flexibility. Designed specifically for use in internal and family medicine, the Acuson X150 also includes special tools for cardiac screening, and is therefore also suited for use in emergency medicine. The system delivers excellent image quality in B-Mode with a penetration depth of up to 28 centimeters, and is characterized by its superior sensitivity in Doppler and Power Doppler modes. Its low weight and compact design make it ideal for mobile use. The Acuson X300 ultrasound system is an ultra-compact, powerful, economic workhorse ultrasound solution. Its Clarify Vascular Enhancement technology allows for an improved display of vessels and SieClear MultiSpatial Compounding ensures the highest possible spatial resolution. Available for the system is the syngo Arterial Health Package (AHP), which features a semi-automated carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) measurement with Vascular Age and Framingham Risk Factors, to help cardiovascular specialists evaluate arterial health. This reliable, noninvasive assessment tool empowers physicians and patients to address atherosclerosis in its earliest stages by optimizing proactive treatment and preventive care. In addition to vascular diagnostics, the X300 features a complete set of applications for everyday routine exams that covers a large variety of clinical specialties including OB/Gyn, Radiology, Internal Medicine and basic cardiac applications.
