The software, Virtual Touch Tissue Quantification, is the first and only application to provide a numerical value related to tissue stiffness at a precise anatomical location. It is not yet available or approved by the FDA for use in the US, but is pending a 501 (k) approval. The unit has been used in a hospital in the UK now for a year. The evaluation of the stiffness of tissue adds one more dimension to the process, so more algorithms available for a better and more accurate diagnosis. BD
The ACUSON S2000 ABVS is ideal for virtually any clinical environment — from dedicated breast centers to radiology departments, women’s health clinics to private practices.
The ACUSON S2000 ABVS features:
- A dedicated breast scanner that provides full-field volume imaging for streamlined workflow
- Views of the anatomical coronal plane and others, not available with conventional ultrasound
- ABVS Workplace supports intuitive volume image analysis, manipulation, and comprehensive BI-RADS® reporting capabilities
Siemens Healthcare (http://www.siemens.com/healthcare) highlights the ACUSON S2000(TM) Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS)(1),the world's first multi-use, automated volume breast ultrasound system, at the 94th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) from November 30 to December 5 at McCormick Place (Booth #922, East Building/Lakeside Center, Hall D) in Chicago. Siemens also demonstrates how Tissue Strain Analytics(2), a new dimension of diagnostic information, and intelligent knowledge-based workflow solutions, empower physicians to leverage ever-increasing imaging information density to achieve greater diagnostic confidence and decreased study time.
