Siemens ACUSON S2000

Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital is benefiting from 2D doppler and 3D/4D imaging following the installation of an ACUSON S2000™ diagnostic ultrasound system from Siemens Healthcare. Ideal for general adult or paediatric imaging requirements, the system is supporting a wide variety of procedures including image guided injections, musculoskeletal and achilles work.

Coupled with high-density (HD) element array transducers, the ACUSON S2000 system is providing Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital with improved image resolution, allowing clinicians to distinguish fine tissue detail. The system is also ergonomically designed – whether seated or standing, the natural and extended reach zones are designed for ease-of-use in busy hospitals and put the most frequently used controls within easy reach.

“The new ACUSON S2000 replaced an old system at the hospital and staff have noticed an improvement in the image resolution already,” said Andrew Redfern, Radiologist at Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital. “The improved image clarity will greatly benefit patients receiving image guided injections or diagnostic musculoskeletal procedures.”

“The ACUSON S2000 system delivers detailed image quality in both B-mode and colour Doppler to improve diagnostic confidence,” said Michael Buchanan, Ultrasound Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare. “The versatility of the system for different clinical procedures is also extremely beneficial, covering a wide variety of procedures in musculoskeletal, women’s health, cardiac, obs/gynae and OR environments.”
