Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Simpson Breast Health Center Adds New 3D Ultrasound Technology

Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Simpson Breast Health Center is adding new 3D ultrasound technology to patients. Any woman who’s had a mammogram and received a call back for an ultrasound knows how stressful that can be. Now, doctors are able to detect the cancer earlier in patients with this new technology being offered.

The Simpson Breast Health Center recently added Aixplorer®, a state-of-the-art 3D ultrasound system that allows doctors to immediately identify cancer or diseases through a non-invasive approach. Aixplorer’s® 3D breast ultrasound, offers Shearwave elastography technology, which provides doctors the ability to better diagnose the difficult category 3 and 4 lesions, that are hard to detect with traditional mammography.

“Improved resolution with state of the art 3D ultrasound now provides an additional screening tool for women with dense breasts allowing us to detect small cancers before they are visible by mammography,” said Ronald C. Prati, M.D., a Board Certified Radiologist with Sunshine Radiology. All breast tissue is different and Aixplorer® recognizes this with five settings that adjust to accurately match the speed of sound in tissue. This results in sharper and better identification of normal and abnormal structures in the breast.

“Having the newest technology in The Simpson Breast Health Center is critical to accurately determine which masses are truly suspicious needing biopsy, which masses are probably benign needing short term follow up, and which are benign needing no further evaluation,” said Dr. Prati.
