Siemens Medical Systems’ ultrasound group in June introduced upgrades to its Sonoline Sienna ultrasound system, expanding the unit’s applications to include surgical and intensive care uses. The company unveiled five new transducers for its Sonoline Sienna 2.0 unit for surgery and intensive care environments. The transducers will allow physicians to use Sonoline Sienna for traditional open surgeries, ultrasound-guided biopsies and aspiration procedures, and laparoscopies.

The four interventional transducers—7.5L50, 7.5L50-Q, Lb5-2 Biopsy Linear Array, and LAP 8-4—are smaller and lighter and carry higher resolution than other transducers, and were developed for such indications as vascular imaging. Issaquah, WA-based Siemens developed its fifth transducer, C8-5, for neonatal intensive care.
