Fusion on the Siemens Acuson S3000 for Merging CT/MRI/Pet CT Images with Ultrasound Images
In one of our previous articles, we talked about an innovative option on ultrasounds – the Volume Navigation and Fusion. They enable you to do ultrasound fusion imaging, where you automatically merge images from exams from other modalities such as CT and MRI.
This option is available on premium ultrasound models such as the Siemens Acuson S3000, GE Logiq E9, and Philips Epiq 7.
This time, we would like to be more specific.
Let us introduce you the eSie Fusion imaging available on the Siemens Acuson S3000.
The eSie Fusion Technology
What is so great about the eSie Fusion?
This ultrasound fusion imaging proprietary option lets you automatically merge CT, PET/CT, and MRI images in 3-D with real-time ultrasound with a single click.
The technology has quite a few advantages over the ones that preceded it.
First, no more time-consuming manual loading of CT or MR images. Secondly, patients do not have to lie motionless throughout the whole exam to avoid complicated manual realignments as they had to before.
The Siemens Acuson S3000’s automatic, one-click advanced registration capabilities eliminate these constraints.
These capabilities also reduce the CT image registration to just a few seconds.
Moreover, it improves the workflow during the MR volume image loading. Therefore, using the eSie Fusion imaging technology allows you to significantly speed up your practice’s workflow.
Thanks to the ultrasound eSie Fusion, which can be found on the Siemens Acuson S3000, the number of follow-ups done with CTs, pet/CT, and MRIs have been significantly reduced.
It performs ultrasound fusion imaging by loading the image scanned by one of the previously mentioned modalities and compares it live with the images from the ultrasound.
Hence, the fusion technology provides you with time and cost-effective patient follow-ups.
Great news for both the patients and the practitioners?
Using fusion gives better clinical information – without additional radiation!
The role of fusion imaging is not only important in diagnosis and follow-ups, but also in image-guided interventions. It allows for superior fusion guided biopsy procedures.
In addition, Siemens Fusion has a unique automatic alignment feature that makes it the best 3D CT/MR navigation ultrasound on the market. Its syngo platform is the same as the one on the CT and MRI scanners from Siemens.
This means that it can load even larger DICOM exam-files quickly.
This option consists of hardware to detect the abdominal probe position and software:
- eSie Fusion option (HW and SW)
- eSie guide needle tracking option for Fusion guided biopsy (compatible with 4C1 and 6C1 HD probes)
Both options are compatible with any Siemens Acuson S3000 and S3000 HELX models.
