ACUSON NX3™ Series Ultrasound System, Cardiology
This web-based tutorial includes a discussion of the cardiology specific functionalities that are avaliable on the NX3 System.
Cardiology ACUSON NX3 Series Ultrasound Systems Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to: Explain cardiac transducers Review image optimization Describe physio location and functionality Demonstrate Anatomic M-mode controls Define Doppler Tissue Imaging (DTI) Review advanced cardiac application 64 elements phased array transducer 2D frequencies: 2.5, 3.1, 3.6 MHz THI frequencies: 3.0, 3.4, 3.6, 4.0 MHz M-mode THI F 3.0, 3.4, 3.6, 4.0 MHz PW and Color Doppler frequencies: 2.2, 2.5, 3.3 MHz CW Doppler frequency 2.0 only Maximum display depth: 300 mm The P4-2 transducer was redesigned from the ACUSON X TM systems. The P4-2 has a slim nose-piece to give better contact between rib spaces. A reduction in the elevation length by about 8.7%. 64 elements phased array transducer 2D frequencies: 3.8, 5.3, 6.7 MHz M-Mode: THI F 3.8, 5.3, 6.7 MHz THI frequencies: 5.3, 5.8, 6.1 MHz PW and Color Doppler frequencies: 3.6, 4.4 MHz CW Doppler frequency 3.6 MHz only Maximum display depth: 14 cm Now we will review image optimization Default Optimized Exam Configuration General 1 General 2 Customized Keys Display User-Defined Exam List Exam Configuration Text Annotation Pictogram List M & R Configuration ⇒ ⇒ Pediatric echo default setting Adult echo default setting Next we will go over the physio location and functionality. ECG module ► 6-pin connector ► Auxiliary Input 1 ► Time Capture Beat Capture R-wave Prospective Retrospective Normal High Clip Capture ⇒ ⇒ Next we will show Anatomic M-mode controls → On the next topic, tissue Doppler will be defined → Now, let's review some advances cardiac applications General 1 General 2 Customized Keys Display User-Defined Exam List Exam Configuration Text Annotation Pictogram List M & R Configuration Customize Keys Editing the Border Editing the Axis The reproduction, transmission or distribution of this training or its contents is not permitted without express written authority.
