Meet the DAX
 
More Information

In order to help you address your bariatric patient population, Siemens Healthineers conducted extensive research to find a solution that allows clinicians to image patients varying in size with confidence and clarity. From this research, a new transducer has emerged – DAX.

The new DAX (Deep Abdominal Transducer) is a unique and patented imaging transducer that allows clinicians to image high BMI patients with confidence. Together with the ACUSON Sequoia, we can now deliver images at depths up to 40 cm without compromising diagnostic quality.

Multi-D Technology

High element density transducers allow dynamic elevation aperture control according to one’s imaging needs. By changing the shape of the acoustic transmit signal, clinicians are able to clearly focus on smaller regions of interest than ever before while maintaining elevation slice thickness throughout the image.

The DAX employs an advanced form of Multi-D beam formation for images at depths up to 40 cm, helping clinicians to better detect focal lesions in high-BMI patients and reduce diagnostic uncertainty and potentially unnecessary patient testing.

How could ultrasound imaging through 40 cm impact your patient care? Watch this video to learn how Ultrasound thought leader, Richard G. Barr, MD, PhD, is using the ACUSON Sequoia and DAX to help him provide more personalized care for high BMI patients.

ACUSON Sequoia

The ACUSON Sequoia™ is an ultra-premium ultrasound system that is designed to deliver more image clarity and penetration than conventional ultrasound systems.* The system features a deep penetration capability of up to 40 cm to image the technically difficult patient with the Deep Abdominal Transducer (DAX).
