Most sophisticated USG machines are used for high-performance imaging function to visualize minute tissue details and vascular structures with precision for a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
- USGs with Women’s Imaging Configuration Designed to Improve Breast and High-risk OB/GYN Imaging.
- Ultrasounds, sometimes referred to as sonograms, are a medical test which uses high frequency sound waves to produce a picture of the organs in the body. In the case of pregnancy, ultrasounds are routinely prescribed to produce an image of the fetus.
- A volume scan takes images from a few different angles, which reveal more detailed images of the fetus, such as facial features. It can also capture movements made by the baby during the procedure (Anomaly Scan).
- The machines are capable of doing Elastography which helps better delineation of certain Hepatic, Breast and Thyroid Pathology.
The high frequency probes are capable of doing better scanning of Musculo-Skeletal System.
Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI)
New technologies in ultrasound elastography imaging, including Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) and shear wave detection imaging, are providing a new dimension of diagnostic information for physicians.
- Tissue strain analysis provides a new dimension of diagnostic information from ultrasound technologies.
- ARFI works almost like physical compression, but can penetrate deeper tissue. A push pulse generates lateral shear waves. The speed of shear waves is closely correlated to stiffness and can be accurately measured with new technologies. The ability to exactly measure the shear waves improves the consistency of exams.
- Virtual Touch™ imaging produces a qualitative elastogram that is more detailed and reproducible than a conventional, manual-compression elastogram.
- Virtual Touch™ quantification offers quantitative results by measuring the velocity of shear waves that are produced through push pulse compression.
Virtual Touch™ IQ combines compression imaging and shear wave measurements on a single screen, allowing both the qualitative and quantitative assessment of tissue.
