Increased information density, automation and intelligent clinical applications take workflow efficiency in ultrasound to an all new level

CHICAGO, Ill., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Siemens Healthcare (www.siemens.com/healthcare) highlights the ACUSON S2000(TM) Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS)(1),the world's first multi-use, automated volume breast ultrasound system, at the 94th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) from November 30 to December 5 at McCormick Place (Booth #922, East Building/Lakeside Center, Hall D) in Chicago.
