AIX-EN-PROVENCE, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Mar 10, 2017) - SuperSonic Imagine (EURONEXT PARIS: SSI) (FR0010526814), a company specializing in ultrasound medical imaging, today announced that it will showcase the new version of Aixplorer® at two respected breast health meetings: the 27th Annual Interdisciplinary Breast Center Conference, March 11 - 15 in Las Vegas, and the 2017 SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium, April 6 - 9 in Los Angeles. Aixplorer, the only UltraFast™ ultrasound platform, recent upgrades include; enhanced performance, workflow and efficiency; and a combination of impeccable image quality and unprecedented ultrasound advances.
"The latest Aixplorer gives me a level of diagnostic information about breast tissue that I never had before," said Dr. Kathy Schilling, Medical Director, Lynn Women's Health and Wellness Institute, Boca Raton, Florida. "ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™) allows me to capture a quantitative color-coded map to visualize and analyze tissue stiffness. That tissue stiffness information helps me characterize breast lesions and identify diseased or malignant tissue. The ease of SWE reduces anxiety for patients, and its and accuracy helps us avoid some unnecessary follow-up biopsies."
Aixplorer's latest version demonstrates advancements in several respects. The new package provides a comprehensive solution for breast imaging as well as detailed examination of breast anatomy. The extensive suite of clinical probes also includes a new high frequency SL18-5 probe and a tailored specialty SLH20-6 probe optimized for breast imaging. This suite is complimented by key Aixplorer innovations: SWE, clinically proven to improve the specificity of breast ultrasound; 3D Ultrasound combined with SWE, which offers a 3D color-coded elasticity map of tissue stiffness; and new imaging mode, TriVu, which displays breast anatomy, flow and tissue stiffness in a single screen.

The exclusive new feature called TriVu allows simultaneous real time visualization of anatomy, flow and tissue stiffness without any compromise. Physicians can now observe tissue in B-mode, measure stiffness with SWE and visualize the vascularization in one single view. This new imaging mode may help clinicians save time as it displays important clinical information at the same time.
Angio PL.U.S., another new tool, also has a breast focus, and is a significant advancement in Color Doppler Imaging. Angio PL.U.S. provides a new level of microvascular slow flow for visualization of small vessels through significantly improved color sensitivity and spatial resolution while maintaining exceptional 2D imaging.
