Siemens Acuson Antares Ultrasound

High performance wherever you need it

The Acuson Antares ultrasound system features contrast agent imaging, 3D/4D imaging, height adjustable control panel, lightweight system architecture, centralized user controls and a re-positional wrist-rest to reduce operator fatigue. These are just a few of the features that make the Siemens Antares Machine a step above the rest

Below is a generalized description of this systems technology, specifications, features, and options. The below may not reflect the features and options available on units in our inventory.

INNOVATIVE IMAGING TECHNOLOGIES Deliver consistent, high-quality performance in any clinical situation.
  • Clarify vascular enhancement technology: A breakthrough in 2D imaging to provide cleaner vascular structures
  • Extend imaging technology: Dramatically improves penetration to enhance image quality in the technically difficult-to-image patient
  • SieClear multi-view spatial compounding: Enhances contrast resolution for detection of subtle structures
  • Image quality is enhanced with versatile wideband transducers. Hanafy Lens and Multi-D array transducer technologies are designed to improve the focus of the slice thickness, resulting in exceptional spatial and contrast resolution.
  • The Antares system provides superior image quality, matched with enhanced clinical efficiency for a confident diagnosis in every ultrasound application.
STRESS-FREE SCANNING WITHIN YOUR REACH The advanced ErgoDynamic design of the Antares system allows you to scan with ease and comfort-The unique orthorhombic system design provides:
  • A Natural Reach Zone where the most frequently accessed controls are easily accessed in standing or sitting positions, eliminating excessive hand motion
  • An Extended Reach Zone, the only solution to easily access peripheral devices, recordable media and transducer connectors without unwarranted bending and stretching
  • Lightweight, compact system architecture to facilitate system mobility within the hospital or clinic
  • The articulating arm and high resolution 19-inch f‌lat-panel display provide optimal monitor placement and enhanced image quality in all lighting situations
  • Hanafy Lens Transducer technology and Extend imaging technologies enhance penetration for reduced transducer pressure on technically diff‌icult-to—image patients
