PREFACE

Siemens is pleased to welcome you to the ACUSON Sequoia Ultrasound


System, made possible by the invention of ACUSON Sequoia technology.
Unlike conventional ultrasound, your new system uses multiple beam
formers and a coherent image former to utilize information from 512 (on
Sequoia 512 and C512 systems) or 256 (on Sequoia C512 and C256
systems) digital processing channels. This proprietary technology
produces an ultrasound image with exceptional detail, contrast and
temporal resolution throughout the entire field of view.
The Sequoia 512 Ultrasound system is designed to help you perform
radiology, obstetrics, gynecology, cardiac, and/or vascular exams. The
Sequoia C512 Echocardiography system is optimized for specialty
cardiovascular exams. The Sequoia C256 Echocardiography system is
optimized for cardiovascular exams. These systems offer a wide range of
standard and optional operating modes and transducer formats.
Sequoia systems have an exceptional record of dependability and our
customer service network is ready to respond to your individual needs.
Additional advances in technology are currently under development. For
information, please consult your Siemens Sales Representative.

Customizing AEGIS This chapter explains how to customize onboard AEGIS review and clip
Protocols capture protocols. There are two types of protocols: Free-form and
Staged. You can define the characteristics of each protocol, and set up
different sets of capture parameters within each protocol. You can then
switch between sets to change capture parameters during an exam.
◆ To customize onboard AEGIS software functions:
1 Select AEGIS from the Setup menu to display the AEGIS dialog box.

Figure 1-1 AEGIS Setup


2 Select a Playback Mode for stored clips.
3 Select a Playback Speed for stored clips from the pop-up menu. The
options are percentages of actual (real-time) speed.
NOTE: When using the Pharm Stress QSI Exam Preset, Siemens highly
recommends using the default “sh” (“shortest”) Playback Speed setting of
50% sh instead of the Playback Speed setting of 50%. (The system lists the
“sh” playback speed settings when you select the Loop-aligned playback
mode.) For more information on “sh” playback speeds, see Chapter 37 of
the User Manual.
4 Turn Save on Select on to save clips that you mark as selected.
The effect of this option depends on a protocol’s Save on Capture
setting. See “Customizing Free-Form Protocols,” next, “Customizing
Staged Protocols” on page 8, and “Setting Up Network Storage
Servers” on page 18.

2 ACUSON Sequoia Systems 0705


Customizing AEGIS Protocols

NOTE: A Sequoia system that is running In-Progress Store and that is


networked to a DICOM storage server, also running Save on Capture or
Save on Select may effect the network transfer rate. See the following
table for the setting combination results:

SAVE ON SAVE ON
SELECT CAPTURE RESULT
OFF OFF Clips are not saved when you end a study. For
more information about Save on Capture, see
“Customizing Free-Form Protocols” on page 4
and “Customizing Staged Protocols” on page 8.
ON OFF Clips are saved only if you mark them as selected
during review. Upon closing a study, the
Sequoia system deletes all unselected clips!
OFF ON Clips are saved automatically. Unwanted clips
must be manually deleted from review before
closing a study.
These setting combinations may result in slow
transfer to network and server. Clip capture
quantity and size, network, server, and
workstation capabilities affect transfer rate.
ON ON All captured clips are saved.

5 Select a Protocol Type: Free-form or Staged, and click Define next to


your chosen protocol type to customize the protocol.
For more information, see “Customizing Free-Form Protocols” on
page 4 and “Customizing Staged Protocols” on page 8.

About Acoustic Capture NOTE: You can save acoustic capture protocols to exam presets.
Protocols for CINE
and Clips Acoustic capture protocols are free-form or staged protocols that have the
following Clip Setting enabled: Cine R-R Capture (1, 2, or 3). Acoustic
capture protocols capture all frames to the CINE buffer when the frame
rate is higher than 30 Hz. When all frames are captured in the
CINE buffer, you can store a clip containing all the frames.
When you capture frames to the CINE buffer using an acoustic capture
protocol and then play the CINE frames, the system automatically adjusts
the playback speed to allow storage of all captured frames to a clip.

Customizing Free-Form You use a free-form protocol for exams that do not necessarily require a
Protocols structured sequence. You can customize the free-form protocol to have
several Capture Types, each with different capture parameters. You can
then use the protocol key to switch between Capture Types during an
exam to change capture parameters.

If your printer is set up to print multiple images per page (or sheet of
film), then In Progress automatic printing doesn’t occur until the correct
number of images have been sent to the printer. When you close the
study, the remaining images are printed, regardless of whether they fill a
page. When you print On Study Close, the printer prints all images, in
order, according to the image-per-page format set up for the printer. If
there are not enough images to fill the last page, it prints anyway. The
printer does not wait for additional images from a different study.
• In the Print Default area, choose whether the system prints all stored
images (All Statics) or only images included in the select set
(Select Set). When you choose Select Set, the system prints only the
images marked as selected. Study Utilities will print all images,
regardless of the selected set. For more information on marking
images as selected or using Study Utilities, see the User Manual.
Select Set option is useful at sites that do not rely on reading images
from film.

Print Now The Auto Print feature has a new Print Now soft key option. This option
is available when the Auto Print Setup page selection is either In-Progress
or On Study Close. When the Auto Print feature is turned off, one of the
following two soft keys is displayed:
• [DICOM SERVICES] when both a printer and server are configured to
the Sequoia system.
• [PRINT STUDY] when a printer only is configured to the
Sequoia system.
Print Now invokes printing upon selecting [PRINT NOW], and before the
preselected Auto Print option executes. Auto Print executes when the
number of captured images matches the film format printer selection. If
the film format selection is 3 X 5, then Auto Print will execute the print
function when 15 images have been captured. Print Now interrupts the
capture process to print an image immediately, and then allows you to
return to capture process. This is a very useful feature in emergency
situations when time is a factor.
Access [PRINT NOW] from an open study Patient Demographic page.
◆ To access the Print Now function:
1 Press SETUP.
2 Select AEGIS from the Setup menu.
3 Select [DEFINE PRINTERS...].
4 Select either In-Progress or On Study Close from the Auto Print area.

Customizing DICOM Network Features

Auto Retry When you turn on the Auto Retry option, the system maintains a list of
studies waiting to be printed. The system checks this list whenever it is
powered on, and automatically sends waiting studies to the printer.
If you use your system for portable studies (disconnected from the
network), toggle Auto Retry on to automatically print images from those
portable studies. Toggle Auto Retry on before you reboot the system and
after reconnecting to the network.
For both networked and portable studies, this feature helps ensure that
printer problems (for example, no paper or paper jam) don’t prevent
studies from printing. Any study that is unable to print or is partially
printed is sent to the Auto Retry que. Auto Retry initiates by one of
two ways:
1 Persistent – While the Sequoia system is being used to perform other
tasks, Auto Retry attempts print or store studies and images in the
Auto Retry que at regular intervals, until the print or store function
has been completed.
2 Power Cycle – Upon power on or shut down, Auto Retry attempts
print or store studies and images in the Auto Retry que. If a server
connection cannot be established, or a printer problem not fixed, the
next print or store attempts are made on the next shut down or
power on cycle. Once a server connection can be established, or a
printer problem fixed, the next print or store attempts are made at
regular intervals, until the print or store function has been completed.
Studies that were partially printed resume printing from where they
stopped. The system does not display a message indicating a failed
image transfer.
NOTE: If a study is unable to print because of a printer problem, the
system maintains all subsequent images in the current study in the
list of unprinted images (it doesn’t try to print again). The system will
re-associate with the printer on the next new patient. Unprinted
images from the former study will not be printed until the system is
powered off and on.
When you turn off this feature, the system does not maintain the list
of unprinted studies. You must print prior studies using the Study
Utilities function (as described in the User Manual).
• In the Jobs Kept text field, enter the number of days to keep the list of
unprinted studies.
NOTE: The Auto Retry option detects the studies that have not been
printed. It does not prevent a study from being removed from the
system hard disk (either manually or automatically when the hard
disk becomes full) before it has been printed.

can use the Study Utilities function to copy studies to a server. See the
User Manual for instructions on storing studies on a
networked server.
• When you turn on the Auto Retry option, the system maintains a list
of studies waiting to be stored. The system checks this list whenever

When you turn off the Auto Retry feature, the system does not
maintain the list of unstored studies. You must manually store prior
studies using the Study Utilities function (as described in the
User Manual).
If you use your system for portable studies (disconnected from the
network), turn on Auto Retry to automatically store images from
those portable studies when you power on the system after
reconnecting to the network. When portable, a 30 second delay
occurs until the system determines there is no network connection.
NOTE: It is recommended to turn Status Line Messages off when
using portable Auto Retry to prevent Status Line Messages from
interrupting a current study.

18 ACUSON Sequoia Systems 0705


Customizing DICOM Network Features

For both networked and portable studies, this feature helps ensure
that server or network problems don’t prevent studies from being
stored. Any study that is unable to be stored or is partially stored is
saved and automatically stored the next time that the system starts
up and detects that the storage server is OK.
NOTE: If a study is unable to be stored because of a server or
network problem, the system maintains all subsequent images in the
current study in the list of unstored images (it doesn’t try to store
again for the current study). The system will reassociate with the
storage server on the next new patient. Unstored images from the
former study will not be stored until the system is powered off
and on.
NOTE: If the study has been successfully stored to only one of the
two listed storage devices, the system will not attempt to send the
study to the other storage device via Auto Retry.
• In the Jobs Kept text field, enter the number of days to keep the list of
unstored studies.
NOTE: The Auto Retry option detects the studies that have not been
stored. It does not prevent a study from being removed from the
system hard disk (either manually or automatically when the hard
disk becomes full) before it has been stored.

Customizing Printing

Customizing Use Printer Setup to customize printer settings for your local
Printing black and white (B & W) and color printers. When you freeze and print
an image, set the Sequoia to return to the frozen image or to live imaging.
Also, use Printer Setup to automatically store images sent to
either printer.
You can set up a primary printer, an alternate printer, and options for
image store in each of the following imaging modes:
• CD images
• B & W images
• 2-D CD w/strip
• B-color images
For better workflow, use the Print hard key for the primary printer, then
the CODE + ALTPRINT for the alternate printer. (You can set up the
printers to print from either key.)
The color printer has an additional format setting that is applied to all
color prints. It is a single (1) or quad (4 on 1) print format. Single prints
one image on one film sheet while quad prints four images on one film
sheet.
You can apply Auto Un-freeze After Print and Store Image On Print options
to the primary and alternate print functions.
• Auto Un-freeze After Print automatically returns the frozen image to
live imaging after completing the print function.
• Store Image On Print will automatically store the printed image for
later review.

Overview Presets store image and format parameters for specific exam types. Use
Presets to quickly recall optimum parameters for a particular exam type,
image type, or imaging mode. Presets Setup allows customization of:
• Image Presets – A collection of system parameters for each imaging
mode that affects the look of the image. Image Presets represent the
imaging goal rather the clinical application or anatomy.
• Exam Presets – A collection of Image Presets, also including screen
format and system setup information. An Exam Preset typically
contains several Image Presets for each imaging mode.
• Categories – A collection of Study Types, Exam Presets, and Image
Presets. It also includes a default Study Type and its default Exam
Preset. See “Customizing Begin/Study Type” on page 33 for
information on defining Study Types.
Use Presets Setup to create, modify, or delete Exam Presets. To modify an
Exam Preset, first initialize the correct transducer for the exam type, then

Biometric Measurements The system displays the current source (author) for each biometric
measurement. You can change the source using the Customize function.
See “Customizing Optional Biometric Measurement Equations” on
page 74.
LMP% and EFW% represent the growth percentage results.

Calculated Measurements Calculated measurements are used to determine fetal growth. The
OB Calc setup page lists three of these measurements Amniotic Fluid
Index (AFI), Anteroposterior Trunk Diameter (APTD), and Biparietal
Diameter/Transverse Thoracic Diameter (BPD/TTD).
AFI measures the amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus. Four quadrant
measurements are summed to calculate the AFI.
APTD takes a linear measurement of the fetal trunk in an anteroposterior
direction.
BPD/TTD estimates the fetal weight based on the BPD/TTD
measurements. BPD/TTD is the default name for the Opt Ratio
calculation. See “Adding an Optional Ratio” on page 77.
Labeled Linear The system provides a customizable linear measurement with a
Measurement (LLM) measured value in centimeters. This measurement is not used to estimate
fetal age or growth, but it can be used in equations for EFW and the
customizable optional ratio. The default name for this measurement is the
Anterioposterior Trunk Diameter (APTD).
◆ To rename this measurement:
1 Click Customize in the OB Calc setup page and then select LLM.
2 Enter a new name for the measurement in the Result Name box.
The system displays the customized name next to the measured value
in the measurement menu, the OB worksheet, and the OB report.
Composite MA Calculation Choose a method for computing the composite (MA) by turning on
Hadlock composite or Arithmetic Mean.

70 ACUSON Sequoia Systems 0705


OB Calc Equation and Table Editors

Composite Menstrual Age Select Hadlock composite or Arithmetic Mean as a method for
Calculation computing the composite Menstrual Age (MA).
If you enable Hadlock composite, the Hadlock composite equations are
used for composite MA and standard deviation when the only
measurements available are any combination of BPD, HC, AC and FL. If
additional measurements are available, or if you enable Arithmetic Mean,
the composite MA is an arithmetic mean of the MA values for all
measurements, and no standard deviation is available.
Circumference Select Trace or Ellipse as the default measurement tool for
Measurement Tool measuring circumferences.

OB Calc Equation Customize OB calculation tables and equations from the OB Calc Setup
and Table Editors page. Use the equation and table editors to add, review, edit, and delete
equations or tables. The item selected from the Customize list determines
which sources, equations, and tables will display. The system-defined
Hadlock or Williams equations cannot be edited.
An edited equation or table replaces the pre-existing equation or table.
NOTE: You can only edit equations and tables that are displayed in an
editable text box (one in which you can type); you cannot edit equations
in gray text or equations that do not have a text box.

Equation Editor Use the equation editor to create and edit equations as described in the
following sections:
• For MA and SD - “Customizing MA Coefficients for Biometric
Measurement Equations” on page 72
• For EFW and SD - “Customizing the EFW Equation” on page 75
• For LMP% and EFW% - “Customizing the LMP% and EFW%
Equations” on page 76
• For the customizable ratio Opt Ratio - “Adding an Optional Ratio” on
page 77
• For the customizable biometric measurements Opt1 through Opt4 -
“Customizing Optional Biometric Measurement Equations” on
page 74
• For alternate OB Calculation formulas, see Appendix .

Table Editor The general procedure for using the table editor is described in
“Customizing Tables” on page 78. Use the table editor to create and edit
tables for standard and customizable measurements. See “Customizing a
Biometric Measurement Table” on page 79.
Fetal Age tables use a measured value along with the MA to determine an
age in weeks and days. You can include a standard deviation (SD) or low
and high values for the MA.
Fetal Growth tables use a measured value along with the MA and either a
standard deviation (SD) or low and high values for the MA to determine
growth in measurement units.

0705 Administrator Manual 71


-

Use the table editor to create and edit tables for growth percentile
tables.The EFW% and LMP% Fetal Growth tables use the MA along with
low and high values for fetal weight in grams to determine the growth
percentile. EFW% uses the composite MA based on ultrasound exam
measurements, and LMP% uses the clinical MA based on last
menstrual period. See “Customizing the LMP% and EFW% Equations”
on page 76.

Customizing This chapter contains procedures for entering specific types of equations.

Chapter 6 - Customizing Cardiac Calculations

The Sequoia ProtoCALL calculation package is arranged to guide you
through the exact measurements required for analysis and is organized in
a goal-directed fashion; measurements are grouped together along
physiologically related concepts.
Conventional packages that you may have used in the past are typically
arranged either by mode (M-mode, 2-D, or Doppler) or by anatomy. They
do not follow the clinical investigative process, which is based on
assessing hemodynamics and physiology for each condition. The Sequoia
system organizes related measurements and calculations in synergy with
the clinical diagnostic approach.
The advantage of the ProtoCALL calculation package is that you do not
need to look up formulas or have instant recall to know which
calculations are needed or which measurements are required for a
calculation. For example, say you need to perform an LV mass
calculation, and you do not routinely perform this calculation. You
simply enter the Basic Measurements study and find the 2-D Volume/LV
Mass category. Under that category you find the measurements you need to
take in order to generate an LV mass calculation.
Furthermore, you can customize the ProtoCALL calculation package to
make any combination of measurements and calculations available for
your routine exams. For instructions on customizing the package, see the
Reference Manual.
The measurements and calculations derived with the ProtoCALL
calculation package can be viewed and edited in the report. At any time
during or at the end of an exam, you can access the report and display the
individual and mean values for each measurement. You can also print the
report to a local printer and capture the report pages to the onboard
AEGIS software.
The cardiac calculation package is available on Sequoia 512 systems with
Cardiac Option, Sequoia C512 Echocardiography systems, or
Sequoia C256 Echocardiography systems.

Chapter 6 - Customizing Cardiac Calculations

Customizing Your system arrived with a number of measurements and calculations


Cardiac preset for use. Depending on your protocols, you may want to turn on or
Calculations off certain items in the calculation package. This chapter describes how to
do so. It also provides reference information (abbreviations, calculation
formulas, and references) for the cardiac calculation package.

Customizing ◆ To customize cardiac calculations, select Cardiac Calc from the


Measurements Setup menu.
and Calculations
NOTE: If you are in cardiac calculations, first press CALC to exit.
Pages in Setup look similar to the presentation of the report pages.
Figure 6-1 shows a sample Setup page. Measurements are grouped in
categories and clusters and there is an option button for each category or
cluster (for example M-mode) and each measurement (for example,
Ao Diam.) Darkened buttons are turned on.
1 To turn a category, cluster, or measurement on or off, select or
deselect the corresponding option button.

Turning off a cluster turns off


all measurements in the
cluster, and their labels
appear disabled.

Figure 6-1 Cardiac Calculations Setup Page

IMPORTANT: When you turn off a measurement in one part of the calculation package
it may still appear in other areas of the package if the measurement is
needed for other calculations. For example if you turn off LV Areas from
the apical four chamber dimensions, they will still be turned on for LV
volume calculations.

2 Press [PAGE UP] and [PAGE DOWN] or toggle the PAGE key to move
through various pages in Setup. Use the HOME key to move to the
first Setup page and the END key to move to the last Setup page.

more details.
There are two ways to install a printer:
• Connect the printer directly to the Sequoia system’s I/O panel. Use
this method when the printer is placed directly on the Sequoia
system’s accessory shelf.
• Connect the printer using the special Siemens Quick Disconnect
cable. Use the Quick Disconnect cable when a printer is placed on an
accessory cart, needs the ability to be readily disconnected.

WARNING! Do not plug printers, or other connected peripheral devices,


directly into a wall power outlet. Always use the isolated AC
power outlets on the ultrasound system to avoid the possible risk
of electrocution!

Avoid placing the printer in a location subject to high humidity, high


temperatures, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or direct sunlight.

• Do not remove the covers of the Multi-Imager. It contains internal
high voltage.
• Connect the power cord to a grounded, hospital-grade outlet.
• Do not attempt to service the Multi-Imager. Always have a trained
service engineer (for example, your Siemens Customer Engineer)
service the equipment.
• Replacement fuses must be of the same type and rating as the
original fuses.
• Do not modify the Multi-Imager except as described in the
International Imaging Electronics Multi-Imager MP Series IIE Operator’s
and Service Manual.
• Do not apply any signal to the unit except a standard level

Connecting a Connect any IBM PC-compatible printer, including a laser printer, that
Computer Printer has a Centronics parallel interface. Use the printer to print text
information such as calculation reports. Also, purchase from Siemens an
IBM-compatible printer interconnect cable for use with the
Sequoia system.

WARNING! The printer must get power from the isolated accessory outlet. If it does
not, chassis leakage current may rise above a safe level and affect patient
safety. If the printer gets power from a nonisolated source, its chassis
leakage current will be coupled to the Sequoia system via the printer
interface cable.

WARNING! Verify that the total power drain from the isolated outlets by all
accessories (multi-image camera, video cassette recorder, printer, and so
on) does not exceed the limits specified in the Safety Manual. See the
particular accessory’s operator manual for specifications.

WARNING! The printer must be located at least 1.5 meters away from the
patient environment.

Unpack and assemble the printer according to the manufacturer’s


instructions. Plug the printer power cord into the isolated accessory
outlet on the back of the Sequoia system. Plug one end of the printer
interconnect cable into the printer and the other end into the input/
output panel connector labeled PARALLEL PRINTER on the rear of the

Working with The Sequoia system network configuration includes the Sequoia network
Network address and the addresses of associated network devices, such as print
Configurations and storage devices. Your local network administrator or Siemens
Customer Service Engineer should set up network configurations. Any
system user can switch from one network configuration to another.
A Sequoia system can function in one of two ways:
• Stand-alone system, which will not communicate with any other
device (print or storage server, network).
• As a networked system, which allows you to transfer data to
designated DICOM devices.

Viewing Network You can view network configurations for a Sequoia system. Always
Configurations consult with your Network Administrator before making any changes to
a network configuration.
NOTE: When you are changing a network configuration, you might see
an Add to all network option button. Consult with your Network
Administrator to discuss the specific circumstances in which selecting
Add to all network is appropriate. For most networks, this option is not
recommended.
The Network Host List page displays the Network Host, Hostname,
Router, and network devices, such as printers and servers, for the selected
configuration. The Sequoia system updates this list each time you select a
different configuration from the Network Configuration Names list.

Using the Charts The charts in this appendix provide equations used to calculate MA or
EFW. This chapter lists all equations in alphabetical order, by
measurement.
Siemens assumes no responsibility or liability for customers choosing
nonstandard regression coefficients in the Siemens OB Calculation
Option. The resulting equations are calculated by a standard regression
analysis technique contained in the Visi-Trend/Plot program,
manufactured by Paladin Software of San Jose, California.
The accuracy of the regression equation in actual use depends on the
accuracy of the data entered in the Siemens system, among other factors.
Siemens assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the regression
program or the equation derived from the program.

IMPORTANT: The equations are valid only within the limits provided.

The terms gestational age and menstrual age are often used
interchangeably in ultrasound literature despite the fact that they have
different meanings. Siemens assumes that the age data in the
user-supplied table was expressed as menstrual age, regardless of how
the table is labeled.

IMPORTANT: The instructions for entering equations in this section apply to Sequoia
systems only.

OVERVIEW
Requires system software version 8.0 or higher.
This document contains the specifications for transmitting data from the
ACUSON Sequoia ultrasound system through the parallel printer port to
a personal computer (PC). Each set of records (transmission) contains
patient demographic data followed by measurement data from the
current cardiac, gynecological, obstetrical, or vascular calculation exam,
including entered and calculated values.
The ultrasound system transmits data of the same precision as that
displayed in calculations reports and worksheets on the Sequoia
ultrasound system monitor.
Safety
Considerations

WARNING! Accessory equipment connected to the analog and digital interfaces


must be certified according to the respective EN and IEC standards (for
example, EN 60950 and IEC 60950 for data processing equipment and
EN 60601-1 and IEC 60601-1 for medical equipment). Furthermore, all
configurations shall comply with the system standards EN 60601-1-1
and IEC 60601-1-1. Anyone who connects additional equipment to the
signal input or signal output port configures a medical system and is
therefore responsible that the system complies with the requirements of
the system standards EN 60601-1-1 and IEC 60601-1-1.

CAUTION! To ensure proper grounding and leakage current levels, it is the policy
of Siemens to have an authorized Siemens representative or approved
third party perform all on-board connections of documentation and
storage devices to the ultrasound system.

NOTE: Siemens does not support or service any external devices


connected to the RS-232 interface. Siemens does not assume responsibility
for functionality beyond the scope of this specification.

Connecting to the RS-232 Cable

CONNECTING TO THE RS-232 CABLE


Connect the 25-pin male cable from the parallel-to-serial converter to the
female parallel printer port on the back of the ultrasound system.
Connect the 9-pin female parallel-to-serial converter cable to the RS-232
cable. Connect the RS-232 cable to the PC.

Parallel-to-serial
converter

PC
Sequoia parallel printer port RS-232 cable

Figure B-5 Connecting to a PC


See the System Setup for information on locating and identifying input
and output connectors on the ultrasound system.
Refer to the manufacturer’s documentation for the parallel-to-serial
converter for baud rate and dipswitch information.
NOTE: If the Print softkey is displayed on cardiac, gynecological,
obstetrical, and vascular calculation reports and worksheets, the
ultrasound system is not set up to send output to a PC. See the User
Manual.
NOTE: The RS-232 serial connectors on the back of the Sequoia system
are not configured to send calculation data to a PC. They are used by
customer service engineers. For more information on the Sequoia system
connectors, see the Safety Manual.

D A T A TR A N S M I S S I O N P R O T O C O L
The ultrasound system communicates with the external PC in the
following protocol, using keywords displayed in English.
1 Select Output to PC in the patient report or worksheet.
The ultrasound system checks the status of the parallel printer port.
If a device is connected to the port, the ultrasound system transmits a
series of records (transmission). Each record begins with a keyword
identifying the data contained in that record and ends with
<CR><LF>, in the following format:
KEYWORD; data<CR><LF>
where <CR> is a carriage return (0D in hexadecimal) and <LF> is a
line feed (0A in hexadecimal).
2 If there is no device connected to the parallel printer port, the
ultrasound system displays an error message.

STATUS BAR ERROR MESSAGE ERROR CONDITION


A problem has occurred on Personal computer or workstation is
Output to PC. Please check PC. not connected to the parallel printer
port on the Sequoia system or the PC
is connected but turned off.

Ensure the ultrasound is connected to the PC correctly, using a


parallel-to-serial converter and an RS-232 cable. Refer to Figure 5 on
page 241.

CAUTION! Ensure that text fields (such as “indication” or “Comments”) in the


patient report do not contain the strings “<CR>” (symbolizing a carriage
return) or “<LF>” (symbolizing a line feed). These strings indicate new
lines of data and may cause some reporting applications to misinterpret
subsequent lines of data.

CAUTION! In some situations, the format of data entered into the Sequoia system
during an exam differs from the format of data sent to the PC.
Information in the Format column below describes the format of data
sent to the PC. For example, you can enter “3 Jan 1995” for DOB, which
is sent to the PC as “03-jan-95”.

NOTE: Only measurements and calculations are sent to the PC with unit
designations. Other kinds of data do not carry unit designations.

Data Transmission Protocol

Measurements with Measurements with multiple values are transmitted using the following
Multiple Values format:
Keyword;Data,Data,Data,Data,Data,...<CR><LF>
Measurement Lines with Each measurement that can have multiple instances is followed by a line
Multiple Instances containing the name of the measurement concatenated with “_mean” and
the mean value of the measurement. For example:
ob_BPD;5.55cm,5.51cm<CR><LF>
ob_BPD_mean;5.53cm<CR><LF>
Averaging in Cardiac When averaging is turned on in Cardiac Setup, the mean value for cardiac
Calculation Data Output calculation data is transmitted as a separate piece of data, followed by the
measurement with all of the individual values. For example if a
“VMAXaovbasic” measurement is taken twice and averaging is turned
on, the following is transmitted to the PC:
VMAXaovbasic;0.30m/sec,1.10m/sec
VMAXaovbasic_mean;0.70m/sec
When averaging is turned off, the system sends only the last entered
value.
