Dynamic Assessment of the Musculo-Skeletal Systems

SWE™ PL.U.S imaging with its unique and even higher ability to analyze tissue stiffness (up to 1,200 kPa or 20 m/s), and in real time, is an asset for tendinopathy assessment and muscle disorders quantification. By adding innovative imaging modes, such as Angio PL.U.S™ imaging and Needle PL.U.S™ imaging, ultrasound exams benefit from complementary diagnostic information.

The utility of SWE™ imaging for Musculo-Skeletal systems has been demonstrated in more than 200 publications to:

  • Screen and assess both inflammatory and mechanical Tendinopathies
  • Turn subjective muscular examination into quantifiable objective assessment
  • Monitor Treatment

UltraFast™ imaging architecture offers unique performance in vascular imaging. Detection of transient hemodynamic flows by UltraFast™ Doppler imaging and displaying of microvasculature with Angio PL.U.S™ imaging contribute to the evaluation of global cardiovascular risk.

The multiple imaging modalities are a significant advancement in diagnostic tools for prostate cancer assessment, and a first step towards multiparametric ultrasound examination of prostate tissue.

Real-time ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™ imaging), delivers a quantitative color-coded map of prostate stiffness at the touch of a button. The very large ROI of SWE™ imaging can cover all of the prostate gland allowing for global assessment of the prostate stiffness and inhomogeneities and quick localization of suspicious areas.

Ultrasound is an imaging tool that is particularly well adapted to children because their organs are not very deep. However, conventional pediatric ultrasound exams are sometimes challenging to perform due to small structures that are hard to image, patient movement and/or the inability for young children to perform apnea.

Our ultrasound systems produce clinically detailed images with excellent spatial resolution for small structures. For children in constant movement, UltraFast™ Doppler imaging makes vascular exams easier.

UltraFast™ Doppler imaging combines both Color Doppler and Pulsed Wave Doppler.

In addition, real-time ShearWave™ Elastography can also be used with children to image tissue elasticity in kilopascals. ShearWave™ Elastography can image liver stiffness even without apnea required and through very small intercostal spaces, or epigastrically, making the pediatric diagnostic.

Non-invasive Imaging Solutions for the Assessment of Breast Lesions

With the SUPERSONIC® MACH™ ultrasound systems, breast specialists now have access to:

  • Premium image quality through a comprehensive suite of breast optimized transducers
  • Real-time ShearWave™ Elastography, the most clinically studied shear wave-based elastography technology for breast lesion characterization
  • 3D breast software-based application that offers unique visualizations of breast anatomy and detailed characterization of lesions

It has been demonstrated, by more than 200 peer-reviewed publications using SWE™ imaging, that real-time mapping of breast lesion stiffness provides additional diagnostic information to improve the management of patients. SWE™ imaging constitutes a complementary tool for the management of breast cancer patients for:

  • lesion diagnosis and characterization
  • biopsy planning and treatment
  • therapy monitoring and prognostics

Designed with a focus on diagnostic imaging to:

  • Detect and characterize gynaecological pathologies
  • Comprehensive foetal imaging and reporting option
  • Add real-time elasticity mapping and SWE™ imaging stiffness measurements as additional diagnostic information in gynaecology to define the most appropriate patient management
