Samsung Electronics said on June 19 it has developed a new ultrasound image processing engine with its medical instrument arm Samsung Medison that can be utilized to deliver more accurate diagnosis of fetuses.
Samsung said the new solution, CrystalLive, uses the latest image processing technologies to deliver three-dimensional pictures of various organs or of fetuses.
The company said mothers will receive vivid images of their babies to build intimacy 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 will be released in Korea, Europe and the United States. It will hit other markets around the globe, although the scheduling will depend on approval from local authorities.
“We plan to improve the accuracy and efficiency of diagnosis through the CrystalLive engine and speed up our penetration into university-run hospitals, which call for high-level diagnosis,” Samsung Medison said.
Samsung earlier developed the 5D Heart Color technology, which can be used to detect heart disease in fetuses. Samsung‘s CrystalVue technology also allows medical experts to take detailed 3-D images of patients.
