Through-Wave Ultrasound: Effective, Economical and Ideal for Breast Imaging, Biopsy
Date:11/20/2007

RICHLAND, Wash., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Imaging Technologies, today announced the ARIA Breast Imaging System (BIS) http://aitimaging.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=16&Itemid=31, a real-time through-wave ultrasound imaging system that uses the diffractive properties of sound combined with holography (HU) to create highly-detailed, three-dimensional images of breast tissue, is now equipped for image-guided biopsy. The automated system has clinically proven to provide superior views of the breast tissue, especially dense tissue, while delivering better data for enhanced diagnostic decision-making. The system's image-guidance for biopsy will be demonstrated in booth #2179 at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Scientific Sessions November 25-29, 2007 in Chicago. http://rsna2007.rsna.org/rsna2007/V2007/exhibitor_list/displayEx.cvn?exbID=916

Until now, women with dense breast tissue have had few options, as mammography is ineffective for dense tissue. This is significant given the link between tissue density and breast cancer documented in a New England Journal of Medicine (http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/short/356/3/227) 2007 study. ARIA BIS effectively penetrates dense tissue, is automated with whole- breast presentation capabilities and provides high spatial and contrast resolution. In addition, the system allows for retrieval of prior comparative studies for quick cross-correlation with known landmarks for year to year comparison.

"Our technology has proven to have superior spatial and contrast resolution, especially in dense tissue," said Jeanette Griscavage-Ennis, PhD, Manager, Clinical Applications. "The data we capture is saturated with critical information that is important for diagnostic procedures such as biopsy. Our real-time image-guidance capabilities provide physicians with precision for improved biopsy accuracy," added Griscavage-Ennis."

Breast imaging has become a multimodality process intended to improve detection, diagnosis and staging of breast cancer. The result is earlier detection and improved outcomes for thousands of women. However, use of multiple modalities has real economic implications for workflow and efficiency. Low reimbursement rates make it difficult for imaging centers to stay financially sound and although demand for breast imaging services has increased, the numbers of imaging clinics has decreased.

Minimally operator dependent, ARIA BIS seamlessly blends the critical elements of multiple modalities into a single system that integrates easily into the patient work-up while improving workflow and efficiency. The system is PACS/DICOM compliant and features a flexible workstation that interfaces effortlessly with multiple imaging and reporting systems.

The ARIA BIS is FDA cleared for breast imaging and image-guided breast biopsy. Learn more about ARIA BIS at http://www.aitimaging.com.
