OCTOBER 3--A long-life single-board computer (SBC) from RadiSys Corp. (Hillsboro, OR; www.radisys.com) is a key component of a new, multispecialty diagnostic ultrasound system recently introduced by Siemens Medical Solutions. This new system incorporates the latest-generation, all-digital ultrasound technologies into a powerful, portable system, accommodating a full range of applications in radiology and cardiology imaging.
The SONOLINE G60 S is based on an architecture that allows for on-board image and data management, as well as a complete range of programmable imaging parameters, exam steps, and measurement/report packages. The system's embedded DICOM capabilities will deliver quick connectivity into departmental or hospital-wide PACS networks, and the upgradeability of its software offers the potential to seamlessly integrate new clinical innovations.
Available in different build configurations, the RadiSys SBC is used in telecom, datacom, medical, transaction terminals, and industrial automation. The high degree of integration and rich feature set provide a platform that is ideal for cost-effective system design. RadiSys began full production of the SBCs for the Siemens SONOLINE G60 S in July 2002.
