The disciplines range from radiology and general imaging to cardiovascular imaging, as well as obstetrics and gynaecology (OB/GYN) to specialty imaging such as musculoskeletal, breast and small parts. ‘The new system integrates high-performance hardware and software and offers 13 multifrequency transducers for high clinical versatility,’ the company explains. ‘It also features advanced image optimisation technologies to support both routine and specialty application needs. Dr Jeffrey Bundy, CEO for Ultrasound at Siemens Healthcare, adds: ‘The Acuson P300 is ideal when a physician needs to obtain a fast diagnosis under difficult conditions – for instance, where space is limited or a mobile solution is needed.’

The firm outlines other attributes: ‘The new system includes advanced image optimisation tools, such as panoramic imaging, speckle reduction and spatial compounding, which optimise the imaging data automatically, thus improving diagnostic confidence and supporting efficient clinical workflow. The system comes with 13 transducers, including specialty laparoscopic and intra-operative probes for interventional procedures. With a frequency range of up to 18 MHz, these multi-frequency transducers allow a selection of several imaging frequencies to meet different scan depth requirements without having to change transducers. The system enables linear, convex, phased array and endocavity transducers to provide scanning solutions for a wide range of clinical cases.’ The Acuson P300 also comes with a 15-inch XVGA LCD display, integrated power supply and two transducer ports for maximum ease of use.
