Eigenschaften & Vorteile

InFocus Imaging

The ACUSON Sequoia system's powerful architecture eliminates the need for a conventional focal zone to create beautiful fully focused images. InFocus uses synthesized, retrospectively focused transmit beams throughout the field of view that focuses at all depths. More information is harvested from the usual transmit sequence, using massive overlapping multibeam groups rather than individual or close parallel beam lines as in conventional systems.

Custom Tissue Imaging​

The ACUSON Sequoia speed of sound correction technology changes the speed of sound per the body type or pathology for improved focusing, spatial resolution and contrast resolution

UltraArt Universal Image Processing​

UltraArt is a novel approach to allow users to select their preferred image parameter by choosing from one of four imaging options displayed on the touch screen. UltraArt can work in both real time and post-processing to achieve the desired image without the need for changing multiple parameters.​

Modality Compare

Modality compare allows the user to easily compare images from other imaging modalities for simultaneous viewing alongside real-time ultrasound images. This provides fast and easy comparison of previously identified organs or pathologies.

Color Technologies

Color Flash Suppression​

The ACUSON Sequoia speed of sound correction technology changes the speed of sound per the body type or pathology for improved focusing, spatial resolution and contrast resolution.​

Clarify Vascular Enhancement Technology​

Clarify Vascular Enhancement Technology reduces artifacts frequently seen in vessels and fetal heart chambers, improves boundary detection in vessels, improves contrast resolution within an organ and between organs, and dramatically improves visualization of micro- and Microvasculature.​

Slow Flow State​

Slow flow employs sophisticated smart filters, which extract flow from clutter by motion filtering, adaptive signal enhancement and flash suppression. These smart filters can detect and label slower flow signals that would otherwise be mixed in with the clutter and excluded by conventional Doppler velocity cutoffs.​
Dynamic MultiHertz Technology​

Dynamic MultiHertz Technology​

A smart technology automation tool that automatically adjusts color frequency based on the users color box position.​

InTune Transducer Technology​

The ACUSON Sequoia system’s InTune transducer technology was developed to produce the best acoustics for each clinical use case. With advanced materials, simulation, manufacturing and testing, the acoustic matching between transducer and patient were optimized; this, together with the electrical signal path between transducer and system, results in the highest signal fidelity throughout.​

Additionally, several of the ACUSON Sequoia system’s transducers feature a unique sensor technology called gesture-detection. This allows users to tap anywhere on the transducer to quickly activate and start scanning.​

Virtual Touch Elastography​

The ACUSON Sequoia system was purpose-built with design elements to advance the state of elastography and deliver rapid, reliable, reproducible results. Dedicated hardware in the dual linear transmitter provides sustainable Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) imaging technology push energy over a deeper range. Robust tracking of stronger, more uniform shear wave measurements can now be achieved at deeper depths to help overcome patient dependent variability. ​
