Arsenal’s era of austerity is not over yet: Emery must make do and mend

first_imgIt was the news that Arsenal supporters had longed to hear and it was delivered with an uncharacteristic flourish by Ivan Gazidis. The date was 6 June 2013 and the club’s then chief executive told a group of journalists that Arsenal’s austerity era – necessitated by the move to Emirates Stadium in 2006 – was over. Topics Finances Share on Twitter Arsenal’s post-Wenger plans in tatters with Sven Mislintat set to leave club Read more Read more Arsenal’s self-sustaining model has been squeezed by Europa League revenues and the circle can, in time, become vicious. “The reduction in distributions from Uefa for Arsenal last season when they reached the Europa League semi-final, which reflect broadcast revenues, was €26.8m – compared to the amount they received from being in the Champions League the season before,” said Tim Bridge, a director in Deloitte’s sports business group. “But any club in the Europa League will also likely see an impact on match-day and commercial revenues compared with those in the Champions League.”Have Arsenal made their decisions well, as Gazidis hoped they would? The one to give Özil a new £350,000-a-week contract last February to run until 2021 (total value: £62.2m) was based on how it might cost them more to sign a replacement and the nightmare prospect of him leaving on a Bosman, so soon after Sánchez had forced his way to United.One of the consequences has been the withdrawal of the contract offer to Ramsey but Emery has come to doubt Özil’s worth. The manager has integrated the summer signings and those on Mislintat’s watch – chief among them Aubameyang – have generally been positive. But further surgery is required and while money is not everything – witness the work of Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham – it is certainly something.Emery has brought stirring home performances, tactical variety and genuine excitement, at times. The scale of his challenge, and how delicately it is poised, remains clear. Twitter Read more The long-term commercial deals that Arsenal had felt compelled to lock into so they could secure money up front for the stadium were expiring and the result, according to Gazidis, was an “escalation” in the club’s “financial firepower”. Anything was possible on the transfer market, he suggested, including the signing of A-list players. “We are moving into a new phase where, if we make our decisions well, we can compete with any club in the world,” Gazidis said.At the end of that summer, Arsenal would sign Mesut Özil and there have since been a smattering of other statement purchases – namely Alexis Sánchez, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. But as the club prepare for Saturday’s pivotal Premier League game at home to Chelsea, the mood is edgy and not only because defeat could leave them nine points adrift of the Champions League places by the end of the weekend.This month Arsenal cannot compete with any club for any permanent signing because, quite simply, the money is not there. It will be a loan or two, at best – perhaps, with a built-in option to buy in the summer, when the new sponsorship arrangements with Emirates and Adidas kick in – and there is bewilderment, to say the least, among some fans.The club’s most recently published accounts, for the six months ended November 2017, showed a profit before tax of £25.1m and cash reserves of £160.7m – including debt service reserves of £23m, which are not available for football purposes. This time last year Arsenal were listed at No 6 on Deloitte’s world football money league. What is going on?The sense of unease has been swelled by the looming loss of Aaron Ramsey to Juventus as a free agent at the end of the season for reasons that are impossible to disconnect from finance. Then, there is Sven Mislintat, the head of recruitment, who arrived from Borussia Dortmund in November 2017. He has grown so frustrated that he has decided to quit; he is expected to leave after the closure of the January window. Share on Messenger This season illustrates the point in microcosm. Last summer the club spent £71.4m on five players, including Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Lucas Torreira, and recouped only £7.6m in sales. It added up to a net spend that was significantly above the mean but it meant the cupboard was always going to be bare come January. Emery knew it would be the case. When he accepted the job, he knew what he was signing up for.Arsenal’s headache is that they have a squad on Champions League wages in year two of a Europa League cycle. The push last summer was an attempt to catapult them back to the elite level and it has increased the jeopardy. The Champions League resembles an express train and when teams fall off it they have to work even harder to reboard – and that can equate to spending.When Manchester United slipped out of the Champions League for 2016-17, they spent over the odds to persuade Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to join up for a Europa League campaign with the promise of clawing back to the top level. In the end, they won the Europa League to regain their Champions League status. Each year a club is out of the competition, it becomes harder to get back in. Liverpool could attest to that. The analogy is to a family’s monthly budget. In some months, it is necessary to dip into the overdraft. It is not as simple as looking at Arsenal’s year-to-year numbers. As for the half-yearly profits, they were heavily influenced by player sales in the summer of 2017 and that of a development site near the Emirates Stadium on Holloway Road.A more convincing point takes in the fundamental reality under Stan Kroenke, who has been the majority shareholder since April 2011 – the club are wedded to a self-financing business model. What comes out must first have been generated from within.The statistics show that since the summer of 2011, Arsenal have a net spend on permanent transfer fees of £239.9m, which works out at £30m per season. Since the summer of 2013, when Gazidis talked the talk and the shackles came off, it has been £265.8m or £44.3m per season. In other words, not enough to buy a Kyle Walker and significantly short of a Virgil van Dijk.A club’s net spend is not the perfect barometer of its financial health; player wages are also a massive part of it and Arsenal’s investment in this area has soared from year to year. But it is nevertheless a decent one. There have been seasons under Kroenke in which Arsenal have pushed the boat out by this measure, namely 2014-15, 2016-17 and the current one. They have invariably been followed by a levelling-off. The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email.

Photograph: Javier García/BPI/Rex/Shutterstock Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Share via Email features Mislintat was one of the three decision-makers who appointed Unai Emery as the managerial successor to Arsène Wenger last May. Gazidis was another but he walked out last October to join Milan, which means that Raúl Sanllehí, the director of football, is set to be the last man standing. The impression is one of behind-the-scenes turmoil.Arsenal’s financial freeze can be explained by a number of factors. According to the club, the cash reserves in the bank are not merely savings, they are to help with the annual running costs. Large sums of money routinely move in and out of the accounts – such as the instalments on transfer fees or commercial deals – and they might do so after the cut-off for a specific financial period.

Christine Moore denies sexual misconduct plans defamation lawsuit

first_imgOTTAWA – New Democrat MP Christine Moore says she’s taking legal action to fight a former soldier’s allegations of sexual misconduct, which she describes as a “total lie” aimed at attacking her credibility.In an exclusive interview, Moore told The Canadian Press she intends to bring a defamation lawsuit against Glen Kirkland, as well as columnists Neil Macdonald, Christie Blatchford and Rosie DiManno, who reported on the matter.“To want to do that because I dared to denounce people who behaved inappropriately, I think it’s horrible,” she said, referring to her role in the recent investigation into her colleague Erin Weir, as well as Liberal MPs Massimo Pacetti and Scott Andrews in 2014.All three men were expelled from their respective caucuses following the investigations.“My private life was exposed” she said. “My sex life was exposed. It was hard for me. It was hard for my family…for everyone around me.”In the presence of her lawyer, the 34-year-old Quebec MP said she had a romantic relationship with Kirkland that lasted about four months, between June and October 2013.“We were lovers,” she said, adding they had discussed long-term plans.“Maybe he lied to me and never loved me, but at the time I was sure we were lovers.”In the interview, she showed photos and a plane ticket indicating he’d planned to visit her in Quebec as proof of the relationship. One of Moore’s close friends confirmed that Moore and Kirkland dated.But Kirkland, when reached by phone in Manitoba, maintained he had never been in a relationship with Moore.“God no! Relationships mean both parties have to be involved,” he said.The 34-year-old realtor has alleged that Moore behaved inappropriately toward him when he was vulnerable and she was in a position of authority due to her role as an MP.But he says he did not file a complaint against Moore and not claim to have been assaulted. He said he only discussed the matter when a journalist questioned him.Kirkland ran for the federal Liberal nomination in Brandon-Souris riding in 2014 before pulling out, according to The Brandon Sun.While he confirmed certain details of Moore’s account, Kirkland refused to fully discuss the events. He said he was ready to take a lie detector test.The two met on June 5, 2013, when Kirkland, who was injured in a Taliban ambush in 2008, testified in a parliamentary committee about the treatment of injured soldiers in Afghanistan.Kirkland said Moore then invited him to her office and encouraged him to drink gin, even after he told her he was taking medication and shouldn’t drink. He claims she later followed him to his hotel room and spent the night.Moore, on the other hand, dismisses Kirkland’s account as “absolutely ridiculous,” pointing out she had to vote in the House of Commons that evening.“I spent three hours voting that night, it’s on video,” she said. “I can not have followed him to his hotel room.”House of Commons records show Moore was present at 10:40 p.m. for a series of votes that ended about an hour later.Moore says she went to Kirkland’s hotel afterwards in response to an invitation sent via text message and had a consensual sexual encounter.The Canadian Press was not able to verify the text.Moore said that while she invited the group of soldiers for drinks and gave Kirkland her business card, she disputes other aspects of his account.She says she does not drink gin, and said he told the commission that the only medication he was taking was for insulin.According to the transcript available on the House of Commons site, Kirkland also testified he was taking another medication against arthritis.Moore says the group left her office in the beginning of the evening because she had to attend an event, but she later met Kirkland and several others on the patio of a downtown Ottawa bar – at his invitation, she said.Photos from that night, including one on Kirkland’s Facebook page, show another parliamentary employee was present. Empty beer glasses can be seen on the table.When questioned on this last detail, Kirkland said he must have been drinking non-alcoholic beer that night.Moore said Kirkland then accompanied her back to her office as she prepared for the vote, and embraced her there.“It’s him who kissed me,” she said. “I responded to his kisses, but it’s him who took the first step.”Moore says that after their night together, they stayed in touch and they saw each other twice.On June 21, 2013, Kirkland sent her an email containing an itinerary and plane ticket for a trip for him to visit her in her riding in Abitibi-Temiscamingue. He later cancelled the trip.The Canadian Press was able to view this email.Moore and Kirkland then met in July at Kenosee Lake, a tourist village in Saskatchewan.Moore showed The Canadian Press photos from what she describes as a “lovers’ trip,” stating, “there were none of his friends there.”Kirkland, on the other hand, claims Moore travelled to Saskatchewan where he played golf with friends without being invited.He claims she also went to his home in Brandon, Man., few weeks later to visit him against his will.She, on the other hand, said he accepted her offer to visit.“I sent him my flight itinerary by email two days before I arrived,” she said. “He picked me up in Winnipeg.”The Quebec MP says she ended the relationship in October 2013 due to the geographic distance between them and Kirkland’s difficult divorce.NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh suspended Moore from her parliamentary functions on Tuesday pending an investigation, which Moore hopes will be made public.Moore said she felt she had no other choice but to take legal action against Kirkland and the columnists who reported his words.“Before making public statements, before publishing reports, there have to be basic checks made to see whether there are inconsistencies,” she said.“If there are no inconsistencies, I think it’s relevant to believe the victims.”last_img read more

BC Coroners Service launches new interactive tool to help identify human remains

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. Coroners Service is launching a new interactive tool that will display key information on active unidentified human remains cases within the province.According to the Coroners Service, the aim of this new tool is to generate new leads that will assist in closing these investigations.The unidentified human remains interactive viewer is a web-mapping application containing spatial, temporal and statistical information on every active, unsolved UHR investigation in the province. The Coroners Service says there are currently just under 200 unsolved and active cases involving unidentified human remains in B.C.

First use of Sinamics SL150 cycloconverters for grinding mills Siemens to modernise

first_imgCanada’s Quadra FNX Mining has commissioned Siemens to modernise the drive in a SAG mill in its Robinson open-pit copper mine in Nevada, USA. This will be the first time that an ore mill is to be equipped with a Sinamics SL150 cycloconverter, after this new drive system has already been successfully introduced in other mining and metal applications as bucket chain excavators and rolling mills. Together with a new diagnostics system, the cycloconverter will increase the operational reliability and availability of the plant while at the same time reducing maintenance costs. The modernisation concept developed by Siemens allows for most of the existing electrical equipment to be retained, which significantly reduces the conversion costs. Modernization work is scheduled to be finished in the summer of 2011.Installation of a Sinamics type SL150 cycloconverter is the center-piece of the modernisation of the ore mill in the Robinson mine. The Simine Mill GD solution concept for gearless mill drives and twin-pinion mills enables analogue or early digital control systems to be replaced without also having to replace the motor or transformers. Particularly in retrofitting projects, the control system of a cycloconverter can be replaced while retaining the power unit.The converter and associated automation equipment are pre-assembled in a container module (e-house). The scope of supply from Siemens also includes a diagnostics system, as well as operating data acquisition and remote service feature. These give the maintenance personnel a continuous, up-to-date overview of the relevant plant parameters. Unplanned shutdowns can be reduced to an absolute minimum and maintenance intervals can be adjusted to actual requirements, thus cutting maintenance costs. Siemens is responsible for hardware and software engineering, installation supervision and commissioning, and adaptation of the automation equipment. Siemens Industrial will handle a large part of the project directly in the USA.Quadra FNX Mining was created in May 2010 by the merger of Quadra and FNX Mining and is one of North America’s leading copper producers. The company runs a number of ore mines in Chile, Canada and the USA, as well as development projects in Chile and Greenland. The Robinson copper and gold mine in Nevada was bought by Quadra from BHP Billiton in 2004.last_img read more

first_imgXylem recently launched the latest in its series of smart pumps under its renowned Godwin brand as it looks to combat the toughest mining and construction applications.On show at the recent Bauma fair, in Munich, the new Godwin CD150S Dri-Prime dewatering pump, part of Godwin’s renowned S Series, will allow customers across Europe to dig deeper and build bigger, it said.The Godwin CD150S offers greater flexibility due to its interchangeable impeller – dramatically expanding the application range of the pump and providing customers with “two pumps in one”, the company said. The CD impeller can now be exchanged with a Flygt N-Technology non-clog impeller, providing customers with the flexibility to tackle “stringy, modern wastewater applications with the same pump”.Also, the pump system has been entirely redesigned with improved hydraulic efficiency, greater fuel economy, and streamlined serviceability to deliver more than 15% improved fuel economy, 40% less service time and 20% greater uptime.“The pump’s compressor belt tensioner reduces the time taken to change and adjust the belt to approximately 30 minutes, and the addition of a new sight glass allows operators to accurately monitor the level and quality of the pump’s mechanical seal oil,” Xylem said. “This new and improved design improves service efficiency and cuts overall service time by 40%.”Kevin Snow, Godwin Global Product Manager, said: “With the launch of the Godwin CD150S, we have redefined toughness for the construction and mining industries. The interchangeable impellers of the Godwin CD150S will allow customers to tackle a full range of solids handling applications, while Xylem’s new generation of Field Smart Technology (FST) gives customers total control of the pump from anywhere in the world.“The CD150S is also compliant with EU Stage 5 emissions standards, offering customers a more sustainable solution to complex water challenges. The new Godwin CD150S is also available to rent from various locations across our European rental network. With the new Godwin CD150S, tough is now smart, tough is flexible, tough is sustainable, and tough is on-demand.”The new CD150S is the latest smart pump to be unveiled under the Godwin S Series – “the smart solution for water that offers unmatched control and peace of mind anytime, anywhere”.Designed with advanced levels of monitoring and control, efficiency and reliability, the CD150S can also be equipped with a new-generation of FST, Xylem’s first-in-industry Cloud-based telematics platform that enables the Internet of Things across the entire Godwin S series, Xylem said. “Using cellular, satellite and GPS technology, customers can track, monitor and control the pump in real-time from any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, anywhere in the world.”The company said: “Xylem also offers a variety of FST subscription plans to suit customer needs, and users can contact a customer service representative at Xylem’s Network Operation Centre from anywhere in the world, at any time of the day or night. In addition, the new-generation FST system is smart enough to alert operators by phone if a problem arises – eliminating the need for an additional telephone alarm box. This new, smart technology increases pump uptime by up to 20% and ensures field equipment and labour resources are utilised efficiently.”The EU Stage 5 engines provide a 90% reduction in particulate emissions, according to Xylem.last_img read more

Furthermore, he said he would get Mexico to pay for it.Trump has also pledged to renegotiate, or even scrap, the Northern American Free Trade Agreement between the US, Mexico and Canada.The Mexican president’s office said that in yesterday’s conversation Pena Nieto congratulated Trump on becoming head of state in a phone call in which both agreed to open “new dialogue.”Mexico sends 85 percent of its exports to the United States under NAFTA and thus been rattled by Trump’s repeated vows to review or repeal the trade pact, and to build a wall on the border.Trump also spoke with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the phone yesterday, with NAFTA the main topic of discussion.A statement from Trudeau said that the pair “reiterated the importance of the Canada-United States bilateral relationship, and discussed various areas of mutual interest”.Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he would speak to Trump via telephone later today, for their first talks since the inauguration.Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting that he planned to discuss with Trump the conflict with the Palestinians, Syria and “the Iranian threat.”Trump has pledged strong support for Israel and vowed during his campaign to recognise Jerusalem as the country’s capital despite the city’s contested status.Plans are also underway for Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet Trump. These preparations may take months, rather than weeks, however, according to Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.With reporting from AFP.Read: Trump’s team: ‘This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period’Read: While Americans have been marching against him – where has Trump been? 14,202 Views Sunday 22 Jan 2017, 12:03 PMlast_img read more

The Best Podcasts for Superhero Fans

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Podcasts have, through some unlikely sorcery, become the hot entertainment and education medium of the 21st century. Their appeal is still not fully understood, but something about their ability to be listened to while we multi-task, combined with the soothing nature of other people’s voices, makes them perfect for sharing obsessions and interests.Because we’re geeks, we like to talk about comics. And we like to listen to other people talk about comics. So a big chunk of our subscription page is taken up with superhero podcasts. What follows are eleven of our favorites, approaching the four-color medium from a variety of different angles.Off PanelThis long-running podcast hosted by David Harper has built up a strong reputation for fascinating guests, and with over 150 episodes in the can you’ll be catching up for a long time. Some of our favorite episodes include Todd McFarlane giving the inside story on the birth of Image Comics and the one where Andrew W.K. shows up to explain the positivity and power of fandom in both music and comics. Harper sometimes digresses into movies and sports talk, but the majority of the meat here is comic books and episodes are brisk, insightful listens.Listen here.Wait, What?For five years, Graeme McMillan and Jeff Lester have released a new episode of Wait, What? every other Monday. That’s a pretty serious run in podcasting terms. The duo cover just about every aspect of mainstream comics, from deep dives into Marvel and DC lore to independent work, webcomics and more. Right now they’re in the middle of a massive project to explore Marvel’s first family, the Fantastic Four, in a recurring “Baxter Building” segment that grinds through the series in chronological order.Listen here.Jay & Miles X-Plain The X-MenOf all the comic book franchises, none is as convoluted and opaque as the X-Men. What started out as a team of five merry mutants and their wheelchair-bound leader has grotesquely blossomed into a sprawling labyrinth of alternate universes, time travel and other nonsense. The hosts of Jay & Miles X-Plain The X-Men are committed to walking you through the mess one issue at a time, covering the characters, situations and creative teams that made the X-Men so popular. The show is eminently listenable, very funny, and they even got legendary X-scribe Chris Claremont on for their 100th episode.Listen here.War Rocket AjaxWith nearly 400 episodes in the can, War Rocket Ajax is one of the hoariest of the comics podcasts. Hosted by Chris Sims and Matt Wilson, it’s a funny and free-ranging dive through the nooks and crannies of comics history. One of the best recurring features is “Every Story Ever,” which takes submissions from readers and attempts to place them in a comprehensive ranking of every issue published in comics history. Needless to say, this is an absolutely absurd task, but the guys have already managed to get 592 damn stories on there (with DC’s Identity Crisis in the last place slot).Listen here.The Savage LandThe wide-ranging coverage on The Savage Land isn’t restricted to just comics – they do movies, games and other geek culture too – but the level of fandom here is top-notch. Hosts Matt Hockett, Rachael Pedersen and Jason Hammons, have great conversational rapport as they briskly go through the latest releases, talk about the latest industry news and interview writers, artists, editors and other fan figures. It’s a solid podcast that has won a dedicated fanbase through regular updates and uniformly high quality.Listen here.Under The HoodSome of our favorite podcasts are the ones that take a laser focus on a subject and just mercilessly dissect it. Case in point: Under The Hood, which puts one of the greatest superhero comics of all time under the microscope.

Department Says Taku River Salmon Numbers Are Overestimated

first_imgThe department said that the discrepancy doesn’t mean either of the stocks are any worse off than they have been, but fishers are concerned the bias could impact ongoing negotiations with Canada over who has the right to harvest sockeye since both countries fish on the river.___Information from: Juneau (Alaska) Empire, The department uses a series of buckets, called a fish wheel, to scoop salmon from the river and deposit them in a holding tank. The Canyon Island fish wheel has been in the same place since the 1950s, only, “It used to be wooden, now it’s aluminum,” Jones said. The department said it had been overestimating the salmon numbers by 30 to 40 percent. The estimates were conducted using a decades-old “mark-recapture” system. Seals would pick off a small amount of these fish naturally, Jones said, which means they might not be overestimating by quite as much as radio telemetry studies suggest. He estimated the amount of stunned fish lost to seals to actually be around 30 percent. Department coordinator Ed Jones said seal predation and the old system have caused much of the problem. Jones said there’s a big herd of seals that sit down river of Canyon Island, preying on the “sulking” fish. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska Department of Fish and Game said it has been overestimating how many Chinook and sockeye salmon make it up the Taku River. Department officials said the statistical bias is being corrected by new state-of-the-art studies, the Juneau Empire reported Sunday. The wheel turns 24 hours a day while in operation during the summer months. The problem, Jones said, is that staying in the holding tank can cause fish to become lethargic when released later on. Biologists refer to is as a “sulk rate” and it leaves fish open to predation.last_img read more

Feds might allow drones to fly over crowds

first_img Share your voice Drones 1 Tags Comment The Department of Transportation released a proposed regulation that would allow drones to fly above crowds and at night.  Getty Images Get ready to see more drones overhead, even after hours.The US Department of Transportation on Monday released proposed regulation that would, for the first time, allow routine drone flights above crowds and at night.It’s all part of an effort to “further integrate drones safely into the national airspace system,” according to a webpage for the Federal Aviation Administration, an agency within DOT. “This will help communities reap the considerable economic benefits of this growing industry and help our country remain a global technology leader,” US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao said in remarks Monday to the nonprofit Transportation Research Board.FAA didn’t respond to a request for comment. On Tuesday, Democratic Sen. Edward Markey, of Massachusetts, called for strong privacy rules to be put in place before the FAA’s proposed regulation is finalized. “Privacy can’t be an afterthought as the FAA seeks to make it easier and safer for commercial drones to take flight,” Markey said in a release. Drones can collect massive amounts of sensitive data from people and can be equipped with facial recognition technology as well as license plate reading software, Markey added. He’s previously introduced legislation to address drone privacy issues, and on Tuesday he urged Congress to act. “The FAA has failed to establish any baseline privacy protections, despite its obligation to integrate drones into the national airspace,” Markey said. “This neglect of Americans’ right to privacy in the age of drones is unacceptable. Congress must man the controls.”Amid huge growth in the drone industry (PDF), the FAA in 2016 implemented new regulations that made it easier for pilots to use drones for everything from structural or crop inspection to search-and-rescue operations to film production. But certain restrictions, including flying over people and night flying, remained, though operators can seek waivers under certain conditions. In October 2017, the FAA granted the first waiver for unlimited flights of unmanned aerial vehicles over people to TV network CNN. In the same month, President Donald Trump expanded testing for flights over people, nighttime operations and at far greater distances and with packages. The federal government has generally encouraged the development of drone use in commercial space. In May, the FAA supported 10 drone companies like Zipline to make their way into the sky, which means faster approval for operations that could deliver medical supplies, inspect industrial sites and even transport people by air. Chao said the proposed regulations will be published in the Federal Register as soon as possible, and that will kick off a 60-day comment period in which “your feedback is welcome.” You can learn more here.First published Jan. 14, 2:56 p.m. PT.Update, Jan. 15 at 10:26 a.m.: Adds Sen.

March 14, 2010 — A new volume imaging ultrasound system that delivers full-volume images of the heart in one single heartbeat without gating or stitching, will be showcased at the 59th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC), March 14-16 in Atlanta. The ACUSON SC2000 volume imaging ultrasound system from Siemen’s Healthcare, features technologies and applications that further improve diagnostic confidence and workflow in echocardiography. “Siemens’ Echo in a Heartbeat technology delivers vastly more diagnostic information than today’s conventional systems, while simultaneously accelerating clinical workflow“, said Linda Calhoun, M.D., cardiologist at the New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) in Wilmington, N.C. “We’re imaging the whole heart in one single beat, before segmenting it to achieve views we previously haven’t been able to see, with an image quality that is amazing.”Full-volume imaging enables new workflow pathways to improve diagnostic efficiency: According to Dr. Calhoun, the instantaneous full-volume technology also reduces time-to-diagnosis. “Using the ACUSON SC2000 system, we see a considerable decrease of examination time; traditional echocardiograms can take up to one hour. Thus, we are able to arrive more quickly at the diagnosis, at the cause of our patients’ heart failures or the severity of their heart disease, so they can be treated more quickly,” Dr. Calhoun said.The ACUSON SC2000 system delivers volume imaging that can be easily integrated into a routine adult echocardiography scan. Nonstitched, real-time full-volume imaging provides wider access to patients and captures physiologic information including color flow and accurate volume quantification for the left and right ventricle. In addition, the system features the Rapid Stress volume stress echo application, with full-volume acquisition in one single heartbeat per stage and auto-extraction of reference planes for comparison. The resulting volume stress workflow enables the only volume stress echo solution for patients with arrhythmia. Consequently, faster acquisition time and comprehensive review of all wall segments in one single capture leads to potentially improved accuracy and time savings.Extending the transmit technology pioneered in the ACUSON Sequoia ultrasound system, the new ACUSON SC2000 system features IN Focus coherent imaging technology which eliminates the need to continuously set and select a given location of best focus. IN Focus technology sharpens the full-field image – without sacrificing frame rate. Building on the ACUSON Sequoia 4V1c transducer technology, the ACUSON SC2000 system delivers continuous full-field transmit focusing using the power of 64 receive beams, maximizing the imaging information rate to better resolve the cardiac structure and motion for diagnostic volumetric imaging.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | June 20, 2019 Bay Labs Announces New Echocardiography Guidance Software Data at ASE 2019 Scientific Sessions Bay Labs announced that new data on the company’s first-of-its-kind deep learning investigational guidance software… read more 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 11, 2019 360 Degree View of a Smartphone Performing a Cardiac Ultrasound Exam This 360 degree photo shows a basic, point-of-care cardiac echocardiogram being performed using a smartphone turned i read more last_img read more
