Siemens Industry Sector MD Juergen Maier introduces the Duke of Kent to an Acuson S2000.
Siemens supported The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair in Manchester, organised to celebrate young people’s achievements in science and technology and encourage them to become more involved in these disciplines at school and beyond.
An Acuson S2000 ultrasound system was on display at the Siemens stand to demonstrate the latest innovations in 3D / 4D ultrasound technology. Visitors could scan a plastic baby model and see the types of images that allow doctors and patients to view a baby’s features in full moving 3D. This aids clinicians in detecting fetal anatomical abnormalities.
Other activities available to visitors included the chance to experience driving a Formula One car featuring software developed by Siemens engineers and used by the Red Bull racing team designers.
