Pediatric patients present unique challenges in diagnostic imaging that requires specialized equipment to deliver diagnostic confidence across patient sizes and indications.
ACUSON Sequoia is designed to address these unique challenges with dedicated pediatric transducers, measurement packages and advanced tools. ACUSON Sequoia scans faster and delivers more image quality than conventional ultrasound to deliver the highest levels of diagnostic accuracy in the premature neonate to the adult-sized teenager.
Ultrasound’s advantages in pediatric imaging include the lack of ionizing radiation, reduced need for sedation, and real-time imaging. Advanced tools such as contrast enhanced ultrasound, elastography and liver fat quantification expand these advantages to new use cases.
ACUSON Sequoia’s exceptional performance in contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and exclusive innovations such as Auto Point Shear Wave Elastography (Auto pSWE) and Ultrasound Derived Fat Fraction (UDFF) improve diagnostic accuracy through quantification and characterization of tissue.
