Aintree University Hospital has recently updated imaging capabilities in its Breast Clinic with the installation of an ACUSON S2000TM from Siemens Healthcare.
The system, based in the Breast Clinic, was chosen to provide greater image quality. It is used both by the multi-disciplinary breast team and also the general ultrasound department thanks to its ergonomic design. In addition to routine breast examinations, the S2000 has enabled the hospital to perform breast elastography procedures for the first time. eSie TouchTM elasticity imaging uses gentle compression to provide a high-resolution elastogram depicting relative tissue stiffness. In addition, Advanced SieClearTM spatial compounding technology is helping to provide excellent tissue detail, contrast resolution, border definition and speckle reduction.
“Following a smooth installation process, we are all very pleased with the ACUSON S2000’s performance,” states Samantha Davis, Principal Radiographer at Aintree University Hospital. “The system’s excellent image quality, advanced features and innovative probes have allowed us to expand the services we offer to include breast elastography, and assisted sonographers in making a swift and accurate diagnosis,”
