ACUSON NX3 ultrasound system delivers high performance with intuitive interface

At Medica 2015, Siemens Healthcare will present the Acuson NX3[1] and Acuson NX3 Elite[1], two new ultrasound systems designed specifically around the way clinicians work. Both mid-range systems offer a simple, intuitive interface combined with innovative imaging solutions for examinations primarily in general medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics and neurology.

The Siemens Acuson NX3 features a new way of scanning with three times more customizable keys and faster workflow with 28% fewer keystrokes[2]. The customizable control panel and touch screen combined with Siemens innovative workflow innovations make it possible to perform certain routine anatomical measurements up to 76 percent faster[2] than traditional solutions. The Acuson NX3 systems are equipped with a LED monitor[2] (21.5“) and a touch screen2 (10.4”) which are among the largest in their class, improving time to report.

To make daily routine examinations easier, the Acuson NX3 systems feature advanced ultrasound innovations from Siemens, including Clarify™ Vascular Enhancement technology. This Siemens exclusive technology provides multiple levels of clarification to optimize tissue contrast resolution and definition of both tissue and vessel walls.

Higher image resolution is enabled with the 16 MHz transducer from Siemens, which is especially suitable for breast and musculoskeletal imaging. Another exclusive solution is the 220-degree endocavity transducer, which offers up to a 75 percent larger field of view than standard probes[2].

Susan Black, Program Director and Senior Sonographer at Mercy Medical Center, in Canton, Ohio, USA, notes the Acuson NX3 is easy to learn. “The Acuson NX3 from Siemens is easy to use, easy to learn, and this helps when I’m training staff because I don’t have to spend a lot of time teaching them how to use the system. We can get patients in and out a lot quicker, and it helps us to be more efficient.”

Siemens provides users of the Acuson NX3 ultrasound systems with a wide range of services, including access to Siemens’ 24-hour remote service with its selection of online services. Optional add-on applications give healthcare providers more flexibility and safeguard their investment over the long term.
