Siemens Healthineers Unveils New Cardiology Applications for Acuson Sequoia Ultrasound System

Siemens Healthineers has recently announced new cardiology applications enhanced with artificial intelligence for the Acuson Sequoia ultrasound system, along with a new 4D transesophageal (TEE) transducer for cardiology exams. These advancements establish the Acuson Sequoia as a comprehensive ultrasound system suitable for regional hospitals as well as radiology and vascular clinics operating under a shared service model. This model utilizes a single ultrasound system for radiology, obstetrics/gynecology, and cardiology exams, eliminating the need for both a general imaging system and a dedicated cardiology system.

“Siemens Healthineers is committed to pioneering ultrasound technology that transforms clinical care and improves patient outcomes,” said Daniel Frisch, global head of Radiology Ultrasound at Siemens Healthineers. “Adding these cardiology applications with artificial intelligence-powered features and our new 4D TEE transducer to the Acuson Sequoia will benefit clinicians who need the highest level of performance in nearly every clinical scenario.”

The new AI-powered cardiology features include AI Measure, which automates the detailed measurements required for routine echocardiography exams, a task traditionally time-consuming and labor-intensive. AI Measure can perform up to 120 AI-powered calculations, significantly reducing the time needed for routine echo exams. The 2D HeartAI feature leverages AI to enhance exam efficiency and workflow during cardiac strain imaging, which measures myocardial deformation. It offers auto view detection and auto contour placement with or without an electrocardiogram, and simplifies the diagnostic processes for ejection fraction evaluation and cardiac strain analysis, thus reducing unnecessary follow-up exams.

Additionally, new software enables clinicians to generate wall motion scoring reports for stress echo exams. These scores help assess cardiac function under various stress levels, aiding in presurgical cardiac evaluations and minimizing unnecessary follow-up exams.

The new Z6T 4D TEE transducer supports biplane imaging, allowing clinicians to view multiple scan planes simultaneously for quicker and potentially more accurate diagnoses. This transducer is designed for preoperative assessments and provides interventional guidance for advanced cardiac procedures requiring high volume rates to assess moving structures and high resolution for evaluating cardiac anatomy. Furthermore, the redesigned 5V1 transthoracic transducer (TTE) addresses the challenges of imaging patients with a high body mass index. It supports comprehensive echocardiograms, enabling the detection and diagnosis of cardiac dysfunction or abnormal pathology by physicians and sonographers.
