Samsung HS70A FAQs:
The noise reduction filter improves edge enhancement and creates sharper 2D images in order to deliver an optimal diagnostic performance. The integration of a technologically advanced Samsung product brings about a notable improvement in the quality of images. In addition, ClearVision provides application – specified optimization and advanced temporal resolution in live scan mode.
The ordinary harmonic technology is able to provide greater image clarity from near to midfield, while also reducing signal noise. Combined with S-Vue transducers and S-Vision imaging engine, the S-Harmonic overcomes the technology limitation of the ordinary Harmonic technology, and improves the quality of the image from near to far field.
This is a diagnostic ultrasound technique that is able to display elasticity by converting the stiffness into color images, while detecting the presence of solid masses in tissues.
• Auto IMT
Auto IMT is a screening tool that is able to analyze a patient’s potential risk of cardiovascular disease. It allows easy measurements for intima-media thickness of both the anterior and posterior wall of the common carotid by one click. This simple procedure enhances exam productivity and adds diagnostic value.
• S-Vue transducers (CA1-7AD, CA2-9AD, PA1-5A, CV1-8AD)
Retaining an innovative single crystal design, S-Vue™ transducers provide more efficient piezoelectric properties. This results in wider bandwidths that enable better penetration and higher quality resolution on even challenging patients.
Upon clicking a suspicious lesion, the S-DetectTM draws the lesion borders, suggests the characteristics of the lesion and gives a hint whether the lesion is benign or malignant. S-Detect™ uses the Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS®) scores for standardized reporting and classification of lesions.
The E-BreastTM is one of ElastoScanTM’s method for displaying a color image that is superimposed on the B-mode image, which represents the elasticity of the tissue. E-Breast™ technology calculates the strain ratio between the selected target and the surrounding fatty tissue. Unlike conventional ultrasound elastography, E-Breast™ requires only one ROI to be selected by the user.
The ElastoScanTM displays a color image superimposed on the B-mode image, which represents the elasticity of the tissue. The E-ThyroidTM uses the pulsations of the adjacent common carotid artery (CCA), which eliminates the need for manual transducer compression while offering greater consistency in the ElastoScan™ image. E-Thyroid™ provides an elasticity contrast index that is calculated by comparing the elasticity of the lesion and the normal tissue within the ROI.
The ElastoScanTM displays a color image superimposed on the B-mode image, which represents the elasticity of the tissue. The E-CervixTM displays the strain ratio between internal and external orifices of the uterus, while utilizing the minute vibrations by the natural physical movements. This technology could increase reproducibility and reduce inter-observer variance by using the sum of 50 elastographic images that are acquired over 3.5 seconds.
• Quick Preset
With one touch, the Quick Preset shows the four most commonly used transducers with each combined preset. The Quick Preset provides maximum efficiency by changing the transducer and preset, and by reducing unnecessary repeated keystrokes.
The EZ-Compare™ allows corresponding views in a side-by-side display for patients who have previously taken exams. Moreover, EZ-Compare™ automatically matches the image settings, annotations, and body markers from the prior study.
• EZ-Exam ™
The EZ-ExamTM enables users to build or to use predefined protocols. It transforms the ultrasound investigation into a streamlined process. EZ-Exam ™ ensures that the full investigation is performed and eliminates the risk of forgetting an image or loop capture.
• Measure Navigation
The Measure Navigation is a function that zooms in on the starting point of the caliper cursor in order to increase accuracy of measurements by providing a zoomed in target area image.
• 5D Follicle™
The 5D Follicle™ is an automated 3D measurement function that identifies and measures multiple ovarian follicles for rapid assessment of follicular size in 3D and status. The 5D follicle is a great assisting tool that is able to increase the efficiency and success ratio of the in-vitro fertility procedure.
• 5D NT™
The 5D NT™ is an automated 3D measurement function that allows the user to obtain the true mid-sagittal plane automatically. This can happen by rotating and auto-zooming the 3D volume image in order for the operator ton obtain the accurate NT measurement. 5D NT™ can lower the operator dependency and increase reproducibility.
• 5D CNS ™
The 5D CNS ™ is an automated 3D measurement function that provides 6 measurements (BPD, HC, OFD, Cerebellum, Posterior Fossa, Atria lateral ventricle) from three transverse views that are generated from a single volume of the fetal brain. 5D CNS ™ can lower operator dependency and increase reproducibility.
• Realistic Vue™
The Realistic Vue™ is the same feature as the GE HDlive, which provides the user with a movable light source and with calculations of the propagation of light through the skin and tissue. The user can freely position the light at any angle, relative to the ultrasound volume images that illuminate areas of interest. The Realistic Vue™ helps increase depth perception, reveal hidden details, and provide a deeper understanding of relational anatomy.
• Wide angle endocavity transducer
The wide-angle endocavity transducer (E3-12A) offers a 210-degree field-of-view, which allows greater visualization of the pelvic anatomy. It is possible to visualize the entire cervix and uterus through normal anatomy as well as viewing from a left-right symmetry in the transverse plane.
• Arterial Analysis
The Arterial Analysis detects changes in vessels and provides measurement values such as stiffness and intima-media thickness. Since functional changes occur before morphological changes, this technology provides the diagnosis related to heart vessels at an early stage.
Strain is a quantitative tool for the global and segmental wall motion of the left ventricle (LV). In Strain , three standard LV views and a Bull’s Eye are displayed in a Quad screen for an easy and quick assessment of the LV-function.
