Leveraging Samsung’s smartphone app and connectivity technologies, the Samsung is the first manufacturer to allow for direct image transfer to patients, who can in turn share images and fetal information with their friends, family, and on social networks.
Similar to Voluson’s HDLive feature, this provides a more realistic view of the fetus by allowing the user to adjust a virtual light source, which creates virtual shadows creating a lifelike view.
“Hello Mom” on the UGEO WS80A is an Android smartphone app that allows patients to connect to the WS80A ultrasound machine and receive images and fetal information from the ultrasound machine. The patient can then share the pictures with family or social networks.
QuickScan is an image optimization function with a touch-of-a-button.
Hybrid Beamforming uses new hardware and software on the UGEO WS80A to create a more omnidirectional view of an image.
SDMR evo is similar to Speckle Reduction images. It uses software to enhance image quality by allowing the user to select levels of speckle reduction while enhancing and enhancing edges. This typically gives a smoother image with less speckle throughout the image.
