Dr Tiran Dias conducted a live demonstration on scanning during pregnancy using the Samsung WS80A Ultrasound Scanner. Mr. Abhishek Tomer, Samsung’s Application Engineer, assisted him to demonstrate the new 5D technology introduced by Samsung Ultrasound. 5D CNS, 5D NT, 5D LB and Realistic Vue were the new features demonstrated
