Comparison of the Acuson X700, X600, X300, and X150 (Which One To Get)

Today, we will make sure that you have no difficulties telling the Siemens Acuson X700, X600, X300, and X150 apart.

We believe you will agree with us when we say that the market for medical equipment is filled with various brands and models of ultrasound systems that can seem very similar.

For example, Siemens has the Acuson S-series, X-series, Juniper, and even more ultrasound series each consisting of several models!

In this article, we are focusing solely on the X-series. We will talk about the differences and similarities of the Acuson X700, X600, X300, and X150.

Moreover, we will offer a price range for each model.

Let us dive right in.

The Comparison of the Siemens Acuson X-series

The X-series belongs to the two Siemens lines that use the Acuson brand name. While the Acuson “S” is a line of premium and high-end ultrasound machines, the Acuson “X” line covers the high-end to economy market segments.

Hence, if your budget is limited and you still want a high-quality ultrasound that delivers streamlined workflows, one of the ultrasounds from the Acuson X series could be the right choice.

Siemens Acuson X150

We will start with the Siemens Acuson X150 – what are the features of this model?

This general imaging, economy ultrasound system integrates imaging technologies to address a wider range of patient needs and clinical applications.

The Acuson X150 was first manufactured in 2006 and it is a low-price entry into the Acuson line. You can expect the price of the Acuson X150 to be between 1.000 and 3.000 euros.

The system is compact, combining an intuitively simple yet powerful user interface with highly functional ergonomics.

And there is more to it.

As this ultrasound is the lightest from the X-series, it is very easy to move around. Also, it is possible to optimize the position of the X150 and its folding monitor in any environment.

Siemens designed this system to grow with your practice. Making sure that if your needs change over time, the Acuson X150 can adapt. It comes with user-installable software updates for future technological advances. This way you can maximize, but also protect your investment.

Even though it is an economy system, it performs solid OB/GYN and vascular applications. Moreover, it can be used in abdominal, small parts (breast, thyroid, etc.), MSK/Anesthesiology, and urology examinations.

As shown in the table at the end of this article, this ultrasound lacks a few features that come as standard for the rest of the series. In addition, you will only find two probe connectors on the Acuson X150 and it does not provide 3D/4D imaging or TEE and micro convex applications.

However, if you have a limited budget, small clinic and still want a system that will increase your productivity and broaden your clinical capabilities, you will be happy with the Acuson X150.

Sum Up

As you can see, all ultrasounds from the Siemens X-series are ultrasounds with economy to mid-range market prices.

All of them can be upgraded to shared service systems, however, you will need extra hardware and software to do so.

The Acuson X150 is quite a basic system with a limited number of features, however, it will be sufficient for a small clinic.

The more advanced X300 is also available at an economy price but will provide you with more applications as well as features. Hereby, it will bring you better value for your investment.

We should not forget the premium edition available at a mid-range price – the Acuson X300 PE. Ultrasound machine that has 4D, more probe options, a couple of top features.

A mid-size clinic will benefit from both the Acuson X300 and X300 PE.

The best you can get from this series is the Acuson X700 and Acuson X600. This is due to the features migrated from Siemens’ premium ultrasounds. These systems can handle more patients and perform more complicated exams. A larger or specialised clinic or a or hospital will benefit most from them.

And how much should you set aside for each system from the Acuson X series?
