Technology

Multi-Beam Processing
Multi-beam Imaging is a technique involving creating several scan lines of images in one TX. Multi-beam technique is possible through digital beam forming and is a function that cannot be realized with the existing analog beam-forming method.

Synthetic Aperture
Synthetic aperture control is a method for overcoming the limits of the physical channel in software methods. As shown in the diagram, to create one scan line, TX and RX work is performed twice.

Harmonic Imaging
The basic theory of harmonic imaging is that body tissue reflects ultrasound signals at twice the frequency of the scanning frequency, or the second harmonic with scanning frequency. Harmonic imaging is an advanced version of conventional harmonic imaging.

Full Spectrum Imaging
Spectrum imaging is designed for imaging by considering the entire frequency territory that the probe supports, no matter how the TX frequency is designated. The frequency range can be broadened for better penetration and resolution.

Speckle Reduction Filter™
The SRF function reduces speckle artifacts and low signal artifacts in the background and in organs. The resulting image has a more clearer image than the original image.

Color Opt Flow™
The exclusive color technology supports quick color image representations of blood flow. Upgraded capabilities include changing slow, moderate or fast color speeds. The preset ranges allow for faster evaluation of optimized blood flow images, depending on the application.

ElastoScan™
Helping to identify early detection of malignant tumors and other various diseases, ElastoScan™ provides clinical information unattainable with conventional scans.

Cervix ElastoScan™
Highly sensitive, Cervix ElastoScan™ easily reveals changes in the uterine cervix often missed by palpation, enabling more accurate assessment

Volume NT™ & IT™
User-friendly Volume NT™ & IT™ allow improved mid-sagittal views and easier measurements. Stored volume data makes reviews and reassessments simpler.

DMR plus™
A completely new engine that integrates Samsung software and enhances image quality, DMR plus™ has a noise reduction processor that increases edge enhancement and minimize noises.

DynamicMR™
DynamicMR™ significantly reduces artifacts such as misleading speckles and noise for the 2D ultrasound image through an innovative second-stage filtering of Object Filtering and Pixel Filtering.

Auto IMT
Automated measurement of the intima-media thickness of the carotid artery wall is a widely-used function. It provides instant Mean, Max, Standard Deviation and Quality Index at the touch of a single button. State-of-the-art functions also include the Framingham Score, Risk Factors, Normal IMT and a user graph.

HD Volume Imaging™
By utilizing special filtering that removes unwanted noises while simultaneously improving visualization of edges and small structures in volume data, HDVI™ renders clearer and more accurate images.

Advanced 3D Technology
New 3D imaging tools have resulted in more realistic images, and more accurate scans and diagnoses.
Face Auto Detection (FAD™): With one-touch operation, Face Auto Detection (FAD) removes unwanted volume data that can obscure details of the fetal face.
Smart Filter Volume Imaging (SFVI™): Touch-activated, Smart Filter Volume Imaging™ provides sophisticated tools for optimizing 3D imaging to eliminate unwanted noise, resulting in immediate clarity and more lifelike images.
Volume Shade Imaging (VSI™): Innovative Volume Shade Imaging displays 3D images of skin tones and shading and improves visualization.
SmoothCut™: User-controlled SmoothCut™ erases objects that hide desired 3D images, reducing unnecessary steps in the exam. Erased information is easily recovered by reversing the action.

3D XI™ – XI VOCAL™
“XI VOCAL displays sequential parallel slices of 3D anatomy to faciliatate more precise volume analysis of irregularly shaped structures. It can particularly measure the volume of complicated types of object easily and accurately.

3D XI™ – Multi-Slice View™
Multi-Slice View™ transforms 3D volume data obtained from a regular ultrasound scan into a series of sequential images captured in intervals of 0.5mm (minimum) to 5mm *maximum) segments.

3D XI™ – Oblique View™
Oblique View™ is imaging technology which enables you to examine and view 3D volume data in various planes of view without limitations.

3D XI™ – Volume CT™
This function represents the Coronal / Sagittal / Axial Image in accordance to their 3D spatial positions, allowing the user to understand the information of cross-sectional images.

 

SonoView Pro
SonoView Pro software reads 2D static images, dynamic cine clips and 3D volume data, allowing for faster and more convenient reviewing of patient studies. It enhances productivity by letting the user view exams while away from the ultrasound system, freeing up the system to complete more exams.

Networking
SonoView Pro supports DICOM Storage SCP/SCU, and DICOM Print SCU. With these features, a user can send images to a storage server or print images to the DICOM printer. A user can also send e-mails with image files attached.
3D Functions
SonoView Pro supports various 3D mode functions such as volume rendering, XI VOCAL, OVIX, Inversion Mode, Multi-OVIX, Mirror view, Volume Slice, Multi-Slice view, Oblique view and many others.

Export
Users can export 2D static images to the common .bmp, .jpeg, .tiff or DICOM formats. Cine clips can be exported to the .avi format

Backup
User can back up exams onto removable media such as USB, CD-R and other devices. SonoView Pro supports DICOM media storage.
