Comprehensive Imaging Solution for the Management of Breast Cancer Patients

SuperSonic Imagine has raised the bar in breast imaging.

With SuperSonic MACH ultrasound systems, breast specialists now have access to:

  • Premium image quality through a comprehensive suite of breast optimized transducers
  • Real-time ShearWave™ Elastography, the most clinically studied shear wave-based elastography technology for breast lesion characterization
  • 3D breast software-based application that offers unique visualizations of breast anatomy and detailed characterization of lesions
  • Innovations including:  Angio PLUSTrivu and  Needle PLUS

ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE) has been proven to be a complementary tool for the management of breast cancer patients for:

  • lesion characterization1
  • surgical planning2
  • therapy monitoring3

3D Ultrasound Imaging is designed to enhance diagnostic certainty. Lesion characteristics and morphometry can be leveraged together with the coronal plane imaging to provide supplementary information.

  • May provide greater diagnostic information due to whole volume images and the unique coronal plane.
  • Resolution is maintained at all depths. For example, lesions next to the pectoralis muscle are easily visible to the clinician.
  • It may also assist physicians in the workup of difficult lesions, such as patients with dense breasts.4

« By adding ShearWave™ Elastography to the breast diagnostic workflow, we can better classify the difficult category 3 and 4 lesions on the BI-RADS® scale, but it seems we can also reduce unnecessary biopsies.»
Professor Dr Med. Helmut Madjar - Wiesbaden, Germany
« With mammography we fail to identify almost half the breast cancers in patients with dense breasts, so we need to use other tools to help improve the diagnosis of cancer in those women (…) There are several features that I like about ShearWave™ Elastography: it gives us additional information about lesions, it improves specificity and therefore improves confidence in our final diagnosis.»
