See the list of patents

  • UltraFast™ Imaging

SuperSonic Imagine’s Aixplorer® is a revolutionary ultrasound system with an UltraFast™ platform that can acquire images 200 times faster than conventional ultrasound systems. In addition to providing exceptional image quality, this unique technology is the foundation for several innovations which have changed the paradigm of ultrasound imaging: Real-time ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™), UltraFast™ Doppler, Angio PL.U.S. – PLanewave UltraSensitive™ imaging, and more recently TriVu: real-time simultaneous B, SWE and Color+ imaging.
Clinical advantages of the UltraFast™ Imaging

  • Real-Time ShearWave™ Elastography

Real-time ShearWave Elastography, pioneered by SuperSonic Imagine, allows physicians to visualize and quantify the stiffness of tissue in a real-time, reliable, and reproducible manner. Tissue stiffness has become an important parameter in diagnosing potentially malignant tissue or other diseased tissue.  Over 400 peer-reviewed publications have demonstrated the value of SWE for the clinical management of patients in a wide range of diseases.

  • Angio PL.U.S. - PLanewave UltraSensitive imaging

Angio PL.U.S. provides a new level of microvascular imaging through significantly improved color sensitivity and spatial resolution while maintaining exceptional 2D imaging. Angio PL.U.S. leverages the combination of ultrafast imaging and 3D wall filtering to create a leap in ultrasound Doppler imaging performance. Thanks to its ability to detect microvascularization in different types of lesions this new mode could open the door to added clinical information and diagnostic perspectives, in both benign and malignant lesions.

  • TriVu

Aixplorer is now the only ultrasound system that offers TriVu, a cutting edge real-time simultaneous imaging mode never seen before. TriVu combines B-mode, SWE™ and Color+ imaging, allowing physicians to visualize anatomy, tissue stiffness, and blood flow in the breast tissue concurrently.  This unique mode also allows clinicians access to vascularization-guided measurement of tissue stiffness.

  • Needle PL.U.S.

Needle PL.U.S. enables you to visualize both biopsy needles and anatomical structures in real time with unrivaled  precision, and also predict where the needle is supposed to go. You save time, gain in comfort and reliability.

  • UltraFast™ Doppler 

UltraFast Doppler combines Color Flow Imaging and Pulsed Wave Doppler into one simple exam, providing physicians with exam results simultaneously and helping to increase patient throughput.

  • Ultrasound Liver Markers

Three new quantitative tools that will open new perspectives in evaluating chronic liver disease in a non-invasive manner1-2-3: Att PLUS and SSp PLUS for evaluating ultrasound beam attenuation in the liver and Vi PLUS for visualization and quantification tissue viscosity.

  • 3D Ultrasound Imaging

The SuperSonic MACH ultrasound systems now provide access to high-resolution B-mode and ShearWave PLUS elastography 3D acquisitions. 3D ultrasound imaging opens the door as an additional application in breast diagnostics and may support accurate interpretation.
