New ultrasound system with image reconstruction architecture designed to support easier diagnosis and workflow

By 8th January 2019No Comments

Samsung Medison, has introduced both a new generation of premium ultrasound system, the HERA W10 and also a prototype of a chair-type ultrasound system.

HERA  — Hyper-aperture Enhanced Reconstruction Architecture — is a new premium platform that incorporates Samsung’s new Crystal Architecture to provide advanced technology and capabilities with a new level of image quality. The new platform combines Crystal Architecture with the advanced transducer technology known as S-Vue and allows an 11-fold increase in processing power and 10 times the data transfer speed of Samsung’s previous system. It is expected to facilitate the examination of high-risk pregnancies and early diagnosis of abnormal fetus conditions.

Samsung is proud to introduce a new premium ultrasound system HERA W10 and a form factor innovation ultrasound HERA I10, as well as solutions that greatly improve the efficiency of hospitals,” said Dongsoo Jun, CEO of Samsung Medison. “Samsung will continue to provide the best solutions possible and bring meaningful changes in the healthcare industry.

Several new features incorporated in the HERA W10 offer clinicians an optimized workflow and more information to overcome challenges. The features include:

 • Crystal Architecture, which offers a superior image with single crystal probe technology S-Vue, a new beamforming technology CrystalBeam and an advanced post-processing engine CrystalLive.

• ShadowHDR, which provides a shadow suppressed image, especially applicable to highly attenuated regions such as fetal head and spine.

• HQ-Vision  which allows users to acquire high resolution images for the detection of clinically important details.

• MV-Flow, which offers a detailed view of blood flow in relation to the surrounding tissues or pathology with an enhanced spatial and temporal resolution.

• LumiFlow which provides a three-dimensional visualization of continuous and volumic vascular image.

• Touch Customization allows users to easily change the position of buttons on the touchscreen for each mode and feature.

In addition to the HERA W10, Samsung has also announced the prototype HERA I10, which shares the same platform as HERA W10, but has a completely new ergonomic redesign. HERA I10 is a next-generation chair-type ultrasound system with a design that is entirely different from the industry norm and meets the unique needs of Ob/Gyn professionals. HERA I10 provides a comfortable experience for both the doctor and the patient by addressing the discomfort caused by the spacing and the position of the clinicians and eliminating the need for the patient to shift the body, as it automatically adjusts for proper positioning. It also reduces the force required to move the control panel back and forth and the resistance force on the wrist.
