Samsung Electronics America health and medical equipment group vice-president Doug Ryan said: "The Samsung WS80A with Elite performance package incorporates Samsung’s latest innovations, including an expanded set of 5D workflow applications, to continue our promise of delivering fast, easy and accurate diagnosis for healthcare providers and their patients."

Providing a workflow that can simplify examination of the fetal heart and improve reproducibility, the Samsung WS80A with Elite’s 5D Heart tool is said to generate nine standard fetal cardiac views simultaneously in a single template.

Based on Samsung’s WS80A platform, the new system has been developed to simultaneously display nine standard fetal cardiac views by applying intelligent navigation technology to volume datasets.

It also features 5D Central Nervous System (CNS), which displays six measurements, including BPD, HC, OFD, Cerebellum, Posterior Fossa, Atria lateral ventricle, from three transverse views generated from a single volume of the fetal brain, and 5D Follicle that identifies and measures multiple ovarian follicles for rapid assessment of follicular size and status during gynecology examinations.

Also featuring S-Vue Transducer technology, the Samsung WS80A with Elite performance package system has obtained 510(k) approval from the US Food and Drug administration (FDA), and is currently available in the market.
