cid image004 jpg01CED55BSIEMENS, UK, October 30, 2013 - The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH) in Oswestry, Shropshire has installed an ACUSON S2000™ ultrasound system from Siemens Healthcare.

The system’s workload is made up of 60% musculoskeletal procedures and 40% GP direct access ultrasound.

Radiologists using the system are already beginning to benefit from improved clinical confidence due to the fine detail presented on images.

The ACUSON S2000 features high-density element array transducers, delivering clear image resolution and comprehensive information.

These qualities, along with colour sensitivity, allow radiologists and sonographers at RJAH to distinguish fine tissue detail, even in the most challenging cases.

The ergonomic system is designed for maximum user comfort and flexibility with the natural and extended reach zones designed for ease-of-use.

The frequently used controls are conveniently located, allowing clinicians at the hospital to better focus on the monitor and patient.

The system was chosen following a comparison task which involved a range of systems being evaluated with a volunteer patient, which the staff refers to as a ‘speed dating’ process to determine the best technology fit for the hospital.

The ACUSON S2000 was chosen due to its excellent image quality and suitable cost.

Since the installation, sonographers have also benefitted from top quality and flexible training from Siemens.

“The installation of the ACUSON S2000 was very easy and Siemens Healthcare provided excellent applications training so the team were well versed on the new technology in minimal time,” states Eric Hughes, Diagnostic Divisional Manager at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.

“The fine image quality offered by the system has certainly provided staff at RJAH with enhanced diagnostic capability.”

“The ACUSON S2000 joins a number of existing Siemens systems at the RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital,” states Richard Evans, Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare.

“We are delighted the S2000 came first during the system evaluation task and look forward to maintaining the excellent relationship we already share with the hospital.

We are sure the ACUSON S2000’s image quality and fine detail will continue to make it a valuable asset to the hospital.”
