U-Systems to Show New Breast Transducer at RSNA

October 21, 2011 — At RSNA 2011, U-Systems will showcase its new Reverse Curve Soft Touch Transducer technology. The system was designed and optimized for use with the U-Systems’ somo•v Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) system.

The design conforms to the anatomic curve of women’s breasts for improved comfort and imaging performance during an automated 3-D ultrasound exam. The technology enables convergent scan line geometry, which allows ultrasound beams to penetrate the skin perpendicularly, minimizing beam refraction, improving penetration and sharpening focus.

Additionally, the system creates uniform compression thickness across the entire breast. Greater image overlap ensures entire field-of-view imaging, increasing confidence of viewing the entire breast and minimizing refraction artifacts at tissue interface.

The Reverse Curve technology also incorporates the Soft Touch Floating Compression Membrane. Designed specifically for use with the somo•v ABUS System, the membrane provides high exam quality with a greater level of patient comfort. It is designed to instantly adapt to a woman’s unique anatomy and evenly distribute pressure across the breast for a quick, comfortable exam. The anatomic shape will also expedite patient positioning for improved workflow.
