Siemens Healthineers launched ACUSON Redwood at the 4th National Congress of Vietnam Society of Ultrasound for Medicine (VSUM 2020), which took place in Da Nang on January 11 and 12.

ACUSON Redwood is a new ultrasound system built on the company’s new platform architecture and features advanced applications for greater clinical confidence, AI-powered tools for smart workflow, and shared services cardiology features used by different hospital departments. These features, along with a portable and lightweight design, offer clinicians an affordable and efficient high-performing imaging solution.

“We are truly proud to introduce ACUSON Redwood at VSUM 2020,” said Mr. Pedro Vilaca, General Manager of Siemens Healthineers Vietnam. “The new ultrasound system is designed to deliver premium image quality, exceptional performance, and greater workflow efficiency.”

ACUSON Redwood’s advanced applications, including Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) and Shear wave Elastography, are available for the first time from the company in this segment and support precise lesion detection and characterization as well as potentially reducing the need for invasive procedures.

A full portfolio of high-performance transducers, including compact micro-pinless technology and single crystal transducers, support superb image quality. With our coherent image formation (CIF) technology, ACUSON Redwood maintains B-mode image quality performance even in complex modes and the system’s UltraArt Universal Image Processing provides several image choices right on the touch screen, avoiding manual adjustment of multiple image parameters.

With a suite of AI-powered tools, ACUSON Redwood delivers smart workflows for greater efficiency. Designed to go beyond the radiology department and bring precision imaging to more patients and being lightweight and portable with 13 transducers, it is easy to move and delivers premium imaging capabilities to the various clinical departments within an organization, such as radiology, cardiology, and OB/Gyn.

ACUSON Redwood is a comprehensive shared services cardiac solution. In this environment it is crucial to address the needs of a broad range of cardiac assessments, which is why the system includes applications such as syngo Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI) technology, an advanced 2D quantitative tool for assessment of global and regional myocardial motion and mechanics, stress echo with a complete wall motion scoring analysis package and Left Ventricular Opacification (LVO) mode to enable cardiac contrast agent imaging.

With ACUSON Redwood, Siemens Healthineers enhances its portfolio of systems built on the new architecture platform, joining the flagship ACUSON Sequoia and the high-performance ACUSON Juniper.
