The DAX (Deep Abdominal Transducer) can help clinicians to image patients of varying size with more confidence and clarity. When used on the Siemens Healthineers ACUSON Sequoia, the DAX can deliver images at depths up to 40 cm without compromising diagnostic quality.
High element density transducers allow dynamic elevation aperture control according to one’s imaging needs. By changing the shape of the acoustic transmit signal, clinicians are able to clearly focus on smaller regions of interest than ever before while maintaining elevation slice thickness throughout the image.
The DAX employs an advanced form of Multi-D beam formation for images at depths up to 40 cm, helping clinicians to better identify areas of interest in high-BMI patients and aid them in a more confident diagnosis.
