Hologic (NSDQ:HOLX) announced today that it launched its SuperSonic MACH 40 premium, cart-based ultrasound system in the U.S.
The Marlborough, Mass.-based company touts the SuperSonic platform as its first cart-based system, saying in a news release that the new system features strong image quality, standard-setting imaging modes and design to enhance efficiency and accuracy.
SuperSonic uses Hologic’s UltraFast imaging technology to provide frame rates of up to 20,000 images per second and enables new imaging modes while offering capabilities for future integrations and AI-driven innovations. It features ShearWave Plus technology to provide additional diagnostic information that may help with managing diagnostic workup of breast lesions, lesion targeting and lesion size measurement.
Clinicians using the SuperSonic MACH 40 system control it through Needle PL.U.S. imaging to visualize both the biopsy needle and anatomical structures in real-time.
“As the leader in breast imaging, we’re committed to delivering insight-driven solutions that optimize patient care across the full continuum of care for breast health – from screening to treatment,” Hologic breast & skeletal health solutions division president Pete Valenti said in the news release. “With the addition of the SuperSonic MACH 40 system, we’ve successfully built a comprehensive portfolio of innovative, standard-setting breast ultrasound solutions designed to better meet the needs of breast imagers.
“The SuperSonic MACH 40 system embodies our commitment to delivering future-oriented solutions and was designed to help healthcare professionals reduce unnecessary biopsies by eliminating re-scans, reducing lesion correlation time, and improving overall diagnostic accuracy.”
