TechniScan's Breast Imaging Science Featured at National Ultrasound Conference
Date:4/11/2011

SALT LAKE CITY, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TechniScan's (OTC BB: TSNI) novel breast ultrasound technology and clinical results will be featured at the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine's annual conference in New York this week.

As part of an educational session on advanced breast ultrasound imaging, Michael Andre, Ph.D., director of an ongoing clinical study at the University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center that enlists TechniScan's automated Warm Bath Ultrasound (WBU) technology, will be leading the discussion and explaining the latest results of the WBU ultrasound system.  

TechniScan's WBU system not only employs the well-known properties of reflection ultrasound but also maps the breast by sending transmission ultrasound waves through it, which significantly improves the clinical information and may allow a radiologist to determine whether a breast lesion is a cyst, a benign fibroademona or a malignancy – without a biopsy.

Two of the world's leading experts on transmission ultrasound and the mathematics of inverse scattering, James Wiskin, Ph.D., a TechniScan founder and adjunct professor at the University of Utah Department of Bioengineering, along with his colleague David Borup, Ph.D., are co-authors on the study. Wiskin will also be participating in the New York session.

"This conference is a great opportunity for other physicians and scientists to learn of the scientific and medical advances the TechniScan system demonstrates," said Andre.

The goal of the new technology is to improve breast imaging using a quick and practical approach for examining the entire breast in detail and looking inside the breast for abnormalities. The images are captured using a comfortable, radiation-free method as a woman lies prone on an examination table and ultrasound is directed, using warm water as a coupling medium, into the woman's breast tissue.

The UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center has scanned over 150 women in the two years of the study and will be sharing detailed comparisons of the WBU technology to sonography and MRI during the education session where results to date show very high correlation.
