Clear analysis of dense breast tissue – with Ultrasound
Another challenge in breast screening is the imaging of dense breast tissue. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, women with dense breasts have an increased risk for breast cancer. Using ultrasound may increase the detection of abnormalities.
Unlike the conventional, handheld ultrasound acquisition technique, where the user moves a transducer over the breast, clinician scan now utilize an automated, single-sweep volume acquisition technique with the ACUSON S2000™ Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) that produces standardized, reproducible ultrasound volumes for improved diagnostic confidence, especially for women with dense breast tissue. The system also features the intuitive, anatomical coronal plane, not available with conventional ultrasound. This view provides a more understandable representation of the global anatomy and architecture of the breast.
An innovative, mobile in-suite design combines the advanced ACUSON S2000™ ultrasound system with a transducer specifically designed for automated ultrasound breast volume imaging.
To further optimize high-volume patient care, the system also supports innovative breast imaging applications, such as fatty tissue and eSie Touch™ elasticity imaging. In addition, Advanced SieClear™ spatial compounding with Dynamic TCE™ contrast enhancement technology enhances the image resolution of ultrasound.
