SAMPLE NEWS RELEASE (For facilities with the ACUSON Antares™ ultrasound system with fourSight™ 4D ultrasound imaging technologies.) For Immediate Release ANYTOWN FACILITY OFFERS REAL-TIME 3D IMAGING TO PATIENTS WITH REVOLUTIONALRY NEW ULTRASOUND SYSTEM ANYTOWN, (state), (date) — [ANYTOWN FACILITY] has recently added a premium performance ultrasound system with four dimensional (4D) imaging capabilities to its Radiology and Ob/Gyn Departments [or appropriate name of department]. The new ACUSON Antares™ ultrasound imaging system with fourSight™ 4D ultrasound imaging technology from Siemens Medical Solutions provides physicians and their patients with real-time 3D images during obstetrics, abdominal and vascular ultrasound exams. “With the new 4D imaging capability on our ultrasound system, we are able to image all obstetrical and gynecological anatomy with greater confidence and more accuracy,” said ____________, M.D., [TITLE at ANYTOWN FACILITY of ANYTOWN, STATE]. “For example, with expectant parents we can now image fetal anatomy using the 3D surface rendering and clearly illustrate the development of the fetus. For breast imaging, we’re able to view the masses with 3D and manipulate the image, which helps us to better plan for the appropriate type of breast biopsy. “Because the ultrasound system provides high quality imaging, our confidence in diagnoses and overall patient treatment is significantly enhanced, and the addition of 4D imaging gives us added views for improved patient management and expectations,” continued Dr. ___________. The new fourSight 4D technology will be especially helpful in [NAME OF INSTITUTION’S] maternal fetal medicine department because physicians can use it to facilitate diagnosis of fetal malformations, such as cranio-facial abnormalities, and to improve communication with neonatal specialists and parents. Additionally, 4D imaging provides physicians with a more complete view of the uterus or breast, improving interventional procedures such as 4D needle-guided biopsies. “We use the 4D imaging for fetal evaluations, primarily for facial and digit assessment,” said Dr. _________. “Because the Antares system has excellent image quality with high contrast and detail resolution, we are able to enhance the images we already obtained in 2D, and in real time, have a diagnostic 4D image. This is particularly helpful for patients, and it also helps us to improve our overall departmental workflow because our exams are more precise, therefore the need for repeat ultrasound exams are significantly reduced.” The new Antares ultrasound system with 3D/4D imaging capabilities was installed at [ANYTOWN FACILITY] in [MONTH].
