German Company Innovision Introduces 3-D Ultrasonic Holography Technology

Non-invasive technology offers higher resolution, better reproducibility for ultrasound scanning of the abdomen, joints and breasts

Innovision GmbH, 3-D ultrasonic holography

October 17, 2016 — Innovision GmbH recently announced the launch of its new 3-D ultrasonic holography technology, a non-invasive technology that allows devices to be equipped for ultrasound of the abdomen, joints or breasts.

Preventative and postoperative breast examinations can be conducted as often as necessary, because the technology doesn't use dangerous radiation. The holographic ultrasound images have a much higher resolution than classic ultrasound can provide, significantly reducing the number of false-positive and false-negative findings.

Another advantage of 3-D ultrasonic holography is the reproducibility of the images. This makes it possible to use automated or computer-based data interpretation for mammograms. Even the smallest changes of 0.1 mm are reliably detected. The novel method can even recognize microcalcifications.

The ultrasound transducer is easy to use, minimizing training time for personnel performing holographic ultrasound. In classic ultrasound, a lot of repositioning is necessary to detect various structures from all possible angles of incidence. However, simply placing the transducer on the area is sufficient when using Innovision’s holographic method.
