Siemens' ultrasound division has released a new line of transducers for intraoperative, cardiac, biopsy and other procedures. The range is an addition to the SONOLINE Versa Plus and includes the Multiplane Transoesophageal Phased Array transducer. It is mounted at the distal tip of a gastroscope and used to gain unobstructed views of the heart, in far greater resolution than transthoracic echocardiography, by avoiding lung artefacts.
