Siemens launches new Acuson P300 compact portable ultrasound system

Posted by:

The Acuson P300, which will be available in the Middle East soon, is a compact portable device equipped for a wide variety of clinical settings. Integrating highperformance hardware and software, the new system offers 13 multi-frequency transducers for high clinical versatility. The Acuson P300 also features advanced image optimization technologies to support both routine and specialty application needs. Characterized by its comprehensive capabilities and compact and elegant design, the Acuson P300 demonstrates Siemens’ competitiveness, a goal of the Healthcare sector’s Agenda 2013 global initiative.

The portable Acuson P300 ultrasound system is designed to meet the diverse imaging needs for a wide spectrum of patients, body types and clinical disciplines – from radiology, general imaging, cardiovascular imaging and obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), to specialty imaging including musculoskeletal, breast and small parts. Enabling comprehensive patient care with advanced ultrasound technology and excellent imaging performance, the portable solution features a small footprint that makes it easy to store and move from room to room. It has a 15-inch XVGA LCD display, integrated power supply and two transducer ports for maximum ease of use.

“The Acuson P300 is a highly portable and mobile ultrasound system designed for situations where a physician needs to obtain a fast diagnosis under difficult conditions, for instance, where space is limited or where immediate care is required. Providing excellent image quality and a broad spectrum of applications, the Acuson P300 increases accessibility to the provision of healthcare, meeting the increasingly demanding expectations of today’s healthcare environments,” said Waclaw Lukowicz, CEO of Siemens Healthcare, Middle East.

The Acuson P300 system includes advanced image optimization tools such as panoramic imaging, speckle reduction and spatial compounding, which optimize 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 multifrequency 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 is available from July 2012.
