Siemens S2000 Adds New Feature: Aids in Breast Cancer Detection

Women with dense breast tissue have been termed a technically-difficult patient in the past, but with the new Siemens S2000 ABVS scanner, this is no longer the case.  The innovative device is attached to the ultrasound system and is the world’s first device of its kind, capturing three-dimensional volume images of the breast, including a coronal view, which has not been available with conventional ultrasound.

The system is well-versed in completing a comprehensive breast exam from physician palpation, to scanning with elastography, to capturing 3D volume images, to conducting biopsies.  Siemens S2000 ABVS user, Dr. Frank Stöblen, has stated “The system application is extremely flexible. I can immediately follow-up with a manual examination after an automatic image acquisition or use the system for a biopsy if necessary.”

Advances in technology and in this case, conducting breast screening exams, decreases patient anxiety and increases turn around time for diagnoses.  Patient care is improving when the coronal display of the breast Volume images provide an even better overview of the anatomy and architecture of the breast tissue than earlier techniques. These 3D images are now able to display the coronal view of the breast (from the nipple to the breast wall) in slices. This view simplifies and accelerates the diagnosis.

Reach Out and Grab Your 3D Baby Face

RSNA update #1

Although trolling at RSNA, somehow I missed seeing this in action, and I’m from Acuson/Siemens, shame on me!      Actually, I think it was demonstrated during a scientific meeting.   Copying and pasting from the press release, sorry….


Utilizing technology that has its roots in immersive 3D movies, the new Siemens ultrasound fourSight Workplace image management software uses NVIDIA 3D Vision stereoscopic glasses and NVIDIA Quadro FX high-end professional graphics solutions to create the most stunning 3D/4D images of an unborn baby.

The clinical images, obtained with the ACUSON S2000 ultrasound system, are further enhanced using Amnioscopic Rendering, a Siemens-exclusive technology that produces photo-realistic 3D images of the fetus. While conventional 3D ultrasound technologies use two-dimensional monitors for the evaluation of 3D images, utilizing NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, users can experience 3D images in real 3D, vastly improving the overall ultrasound experience.

“Imagine the absolute thrill of an expectant mom and dad putting on 3D glasses and being able to really see what their baby looks like in vivid, high-resolution detail,” said Jeff Brown, general manager, NVIDIA Professional Solutions. “NVIDIA Quadro technology enables our partners like Siemens Healthcare to make the impossible possible — offering remarkable 3D visual experiences that are also cost-effective for physicians.”

“This technology takes 3D/4D ultrasound imaging to the next level,” said Barbara Del Prince, Global Segment Manager, Obstetrics and Gynecology at Siemens. “Our fourSight Workplace, combined with the NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solution and 3D Vision technology, offers a truly remarkable experience that’s rewarding for parents and their doctors, while also delivering practical benefits in medicine.” This quality improvement may provide additional information to the physician and assist in communication with surgeons and patients or to aid in treatment or surgical planning.
