New Ultrasound Solution Improves Follicular Assessment

November 10, 2008 - GE Healthcare launched SonoAVCfollicle, a new software that scans and views the stimulated ovarian follicles for use on the Voluson i ultrasound platform.

Released at the 64th Annual Meeting for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) November 8-12th in San Francisco, CA, SonoAVCfollicle is designed to enable early evaluation and clinical confidence for women’s reproductive assessment.

Providing a reportedly easier method to scan and view the stimulated follicle using GE’s Voluson ultrasound technology, SonoAVCfollicle calculates the number and volume of ovarian follicles. This is a critical diagnostic step in assisted reproductive medicine. With 3D ovarian volume, SonoAVC follicle calculates the number and volume of the fluid-filled follicles containing hormone producing cells and a maturing ovum (egg). The software allows for reproducible monitoring of follicular development in patients undergoing ovarian hyperstimulation.

According to Alfred Abuhamad, M.D., chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Eastern Virginia Medical School, “SonoAVCfollicle is a software system that automates and simplifies follicular assessment, and it has great promise in clinical practice. SonoAVCfollicle represents a giant step toward that goal.”

SonoAVCfollicle improves productivity and patient comfort by shortening the exam time. Instead of using the traditional 2D transvaginal probe with time-consuming techniques to count and size the follicles. SonoAVC, uses 3D ultrasound technology with a single sweep of the ovarian complex to assess color-coded follicles.
