Samsung develops ultraclear ultrasoundSamsung Electronics said on Tuesday it had developed an ultrasound image processing engine with its medical instrument subsidiary, Samsung Medison, that can be utilized to deliver more accurate diagnoses of fetuses.
Samsung said the new solution, CrystalLive, uses the latest image processing technologies to deliver three-dimensional pictures of various organs in fetuses. The company said mothers will be able to receive vivid images of their babies and that doctors can improve the accuracy of diagnoses by detecting potential congenital diseases.
Samsung said its ultrasound device, WS80A, will use the CrystalLive engine and was released in Korea, Europe and the United States on Tuesday. The company expects to enter other markets as well, pending approval from local authorities.
“We plan to improve the accuracy and efficiency of diagnoses through the CrystalLive engine,” Samsung Medison said in a statement, “and speed up our penetration into university-run hospitals, which call for high levels of diagnosis.”
