Siemens' New Deal May Drive Breast Volume Ultrasound Adoption

January 16, 2009 – Siemens Healthcare and U-Systems signed a technology licensing agreement for U-Systems’ somo-VIEWer* advanced workstation for Automated Breast Ultrasound for use with Siemens’ ACUSON S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS), in a deal that aims to facilitate the adoption of automated breast volume ultrasound.

The device is designed to will allow physicians to obtain the comprehensive 3D view of the breast with the intuitive anatomical coronal plane not available with conventional ultrasound systems.

ABVS can make a significant contribution in diagnostic confidence for women with dense breast tissue and inconclusive mammograms. The coronal view provided by the somo-VIEWer workstation offers a more understandable representation of the global anatomy and architecture of the breast, which will ultimately improve patient care and increase clinical workflow.

U-Systems, Inc. is a privately held venture-backed company with Siemens Venture Capital (SVC) as an investor.

*The works-in-progress device is indicated for use as an adjunct to mammography for B-mode ultrasonic imaging of a patient’s breast when used with an automatic scanning linear array transducer. The device is not intended to be used as a replacement for screening mammography.
