|Installing/Enabling DICOM features|
Looking to work with a physician who has an Acuson cardiac ultrasound unit and get this type of unit connected to an existing PACS. Their unit physically appears to have networking ability (has a network jack in the back and network settings option in the Service UI), but does not appear to have DICOM storage features installed. I believe the system it is running version 12.2 system software. In the Service UI network settings, trying to add or change a host type to the "DICOM" selection gives a message basically saying that the DICOM feature is not present (and naturally to call Acuson sales). What would be needed to get a machine in this state enabled for send images over a local network via DICOM? Is it only a software add-in needed or hardware installation as well? Reply

|Acuson 512 setup.|
Is there anyone familiar with setting the 512 with a PACs network. I need to setup a way for my client to make CDs to give to his Patients. Or is there away to make CDs directly for the Acuson 512 ultrasoundReply

Biomed Tip for Sequoia Ultrasound System Networking
The Sequoia ultrasound system is very particular when it comes to Network / Dicom setup and editing. Sequoia networking setup is a more advanced level of interaction with the Sequoia, if you are not familiar with the service tools this maybe a task you ask in which you ask for help. Provided is a list of guidelines that will help keep you out of trouble when setting up or editing a Sequoia network.
These guidelines are the same for creating a new network or editing a network. We call them guidelines because with the Sequoia and networking it never seems that there are hard fast rules. It is realized that there is more than one method to accomplish these edits to the network configuration. However, 15 years of Sequoia experience provides the safest and best guidelines for success.

|Routine cleaning of connector ports|
Why? The connector ports on the Acuson Sequoia are a place where dust and lint can and will collect. In order to cool the scanner, air flow is normally routed through the scanner’s main filters. As the filters become more restricted, air will take the path of least resistance into the scanner. The design, of the micro-pinless connectors on the Sequoia, makes the collection of dust and lint extremely problematic. Dust and lint become trapped on the small, pointed pins on the connector’s surface. This build-up of debris can and will, over-time, cause a variety of intermittent issues on all types of probes. • Probe ID failures • Electro-magnetic interference (EMI) susceptibility • Calibration failures • Dropout and image quality degradation How? Ports should be cleaned with the scanner power OFF. Use a soft-bristled brush to gently wipe the connector plate. Compressed air or a vacuum is recommended to aide in the elimination of the dust. When? This process should be integrated into a comprehensive PM and filter cleaning program. Many of our customers have experienced great success in minimizing intermittent issues with routine filter and connector cleanings, either: • Bi-weekly • Monthly • Or based on filter monitoringReply
