The John Radcliffe Hospital, part of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, has recently taken installation of four new ACUSON S2000™ diagnostic ultrasound systems from Siemens Healthcare. Two of the new systems are located in the Radiology Department, one in the Fetal Medicine Department and a further one in the Neonatal Unit. 

Following a smooth installation process, the two ACUSON S2000s located in the Radiology Department are being used for a range of procedures including gynaecological, deep vein thrombosis analysis, breast imaging, along with handling a general endovascular workload. 


 “The Radiology Department selected its two ACUSON S2000s from Siemens Healthcare after having evaluated a number of other systems on the market,” states Andrea McCulloch, Lead Sonographer at John Radcliffe Hospital. “We decided that the ACUSON S2000 provided excellent image quality and we were already familiar with Siemens technology.”

The ACUSON S2000 is an ideal imaging solution for cardiac and breast work, small parts and vascular imaging, plus deep abdominal penetration. It features high-density (HD) element array transducers and delivers clear image resolution, allowing clinicians to distinguish fine tissue detail.
