The Samsung RS85A ultrasound system combines exceptional image quality with advanced ergonomics
Samsung NeuroLogica, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., announced FDA approval of Samsung RS85A ultrasound system. The device was unveiled at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) in New York on March 23, 2018. The RS85A is the latest expansion of Samsung’s revolutionary ultrasound portfolio. “We are pleased to launch the RS85A, a new premium general imaging ultrasound system with superior image quality and usability based on Samsung’s advanced ultrasound and radiology technologies,” said Philip Sullivan, President and CEO of Samsung NeuroLogica.
RS85A features MV-Flow to allow visualization of slow-flow micro vascularized structures, which can be difficult to assess with conventional power Doppler ultrasound. Furthermore, it can monitor lesions indicating cancer or inflammation. S-Shearwave Imaging provides new indicators for clinical diagnosis by quantifying the elasticity of tissue or lesions via shearwave elastography, which may help increase the accuracy of diagnosis for breast and liver diseases. CEUS diagnoses and characterizes lesions in the liver using a contrast agent in adult and pediatric populations. S-Fusion Enables simultaneous localization of a lesion using real-time ultrasound in conjunction with other volumetric imaging modalities such as an MRI or a CT, while expanding its capabilities to the prostate gland for precise, targeted biopsy guidance.
The RS85A helps to decrease user-fatigue and repetitive motions with an enhanced monitor arm and increased range of motion and tilt. These allow the user to position the monitor for optimal viewing and control. Moreover, multi-step actions have been combined into a single step to help reduce keystrokes and repetitive user interface interactions. Furthermore, Samsung will showcase additional products in comprehensive ultrasound portfolio, including the WS80A with Elite, premium women’s health ultrasound system, the HS60, HS40, and the HM70A with Plus.
