Samsung Launches New AI-Enabled OB/GYN Ultrasound System


The HERA W10 Elite ultrasound platform provides enhanced visualization features and artificial intelligence (AI)-aided measurement capabilities.

Could the HERA W10 Elite reinvent ultrasound imaging in obstetrics and gynecology care?

The newly launched ultrasound system offers 2D and 3D visualization of microcirculatory and slow blood with the Advanced MV-Flow™ feature and a large organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display that provides improved characterization of diverse ultrasound images, according to Samsung, the manufacturer of the HERA W10 Elite system.

Samsung said the HERA W10 Elite also has HeartAssist, an artificial intelligence (AI)-enhanced feature that provides automated measurement views to facilitate diagnosis of the fetal heart.

Other planned features, pending 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), include a new EV2-12 transducer that allows imaging of the fetal heart and brain starting at eight weeks and Biometry Assist, which allows one-click measurement of fetal growth parameters.

“Women’s health is a fast-growing field that requires state-of-the-art equipment for patient care. The HERA W10 Elite will bring visionary change to obstetrics and gynecology with sophisticated image processing and an ergonomic-friendly design,” noted Tracy Bury, Women’s Health Ultrasound Business Leader with Boston Imaging, the United States headquarters for Samsung’s digital radiography and ultrasound business.
