A unique approach to overcome the inherent artifacts of conventional ultrasound that compromise image quality.
SonoCT imaging technology uses transmit beam-steering techniques to obtain coplanar, tomographic images from different viewing angles, then combines these micro-angulated images into a single compounded image at real-time frame rates. SonoCT imaging enables clinicians to acquire up to nine times more tissue information than the orthogonal beams used in conventional ultrasound, without any unusual manipulation of the transducer and without sacrificing frame rates.
With SonoCT, angle-generated and speckle noise artifacts are reduced, and structures with curved and irregular borders are more readily visualized. Contrast resolution is improved and tissue margins are more discernable. Using SonoCT imaging, real tissue information is reinforced while random artifacts are virtually eliminated. This powerful imaging technology, available on linear, curved, tightly curved, and mechanical volumetric array transducers, produces images superior to conventional imaging in up to 94% of patients. SonoCT imaging has further been proven to boost diagnostic confidence, create operational efficiencies and, in a critically important conclusion, change patient management in as many as 17.6% of cases*.
