Whitepaper: Reduce False Negatives with Next Generation 2D Shear Wave Elastography 

The ACUSON Sequoia Crown Ultrasound System

The key to fighting breast cancer is early and accurate detection. Breast ultrasound is an exceptionally effective tool for imaging palpable abnormalities in the breast1.

For women with dense breasts, whose mammograms can be difficult to interpret, the ultrasound exam is even more crucial. It is estimated that ultrasound detects an additional 2–4 cancers per 1,000 women with dense breasts2

Siemens Healthineers ultrasound next-generation 2D-Shear Wave Elastography (2D SWE) updated algorithm adapts to better characterizing stiff lesions providing improved performance in the delineation of small and stiff lesions, previously identified as blue cancers.3
