Testimonials
« 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.»
Dr Kathy Schilling, M.D. - Boca Raton, Florida, USA
« 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
