Chorley and South Ribble Hospital, part of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has installed a second Acuson S2000 ultrasound system from Siemens Healthcare. It has also received the syngo Auto OB software application and a 9L4 transducer. The setup is being used primarily for obstetric examinations as well as some general scanning work, including small parts imaging. Siemens syngo Auto OB applications draws on a large database of ultrasound images to provide instant and automated biometric measurements to the sonographer without the need for manual calculations.
