360 View of an Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) Imaging Room

A 360 degree view of an automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) exam room at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital. The room includes cabinets for spare sheets and patient positioning pads, an EMR/PACS workstation and a somo-v ABUS system from GE Healthcare. ABUS can help automate the breast ultrasound acquisition and eliminate variability between operators or experience levels of sonographers. The system acquires a dataset, where images can be scrolled through similar to slices on a CT scan or on a 3-D tomosynthesis mammography imaging system. This can help better delineate tumors that might otherwise be hiding in dense breast tissue, which can go unseen on traditional 2-D mammography.
