Read about how SonoCine AWBUS compares.
SonoCine is an ultrasound technology, uses no x-rays and has no radiation, has no painful compression, and reliably finds 4-10mm breast cancers in all breast tissue types and women with implants. Mammography is an x-ray technology [...]
The SonoCine system is designed to overcome the inconsistencies that result from handheld scanning. The inherent complexity of hand scanning detracts from the ability to recognize subtle findings of cancer. SonoCine technology robotically scans the [...]
Yes, women with implants are good candidates for SonoCine AWBUS. Evidence suggests that suspicious masses can be more difficult to detect with implants much like in dense tissue, and there is no danger of damaging [...]
No. SonoCine AWBUS was designed to be used in conjunction with traditional mammograms, providing additional detail for breast tissue that is difficult to evaluate with mammogram alone.
SonoCine AWBUS technology received FDA clearance in 2008. SonoCine AWBUS has FDA 510k clearance: “The SonoCine Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound System is indicated for use as an adjunct to mammography, but is not intended to [...]
No, the SonoCine only uses ultrasound, so there's no need to worry about radiation exposure. Plus, because it doesn't compress the breast tissue between plates like a mammogram does, it's painless.
No, the SonoCine uses a computer-guided arm to perform scans, but the ultrasound technician is still present to ensure the arm is properly placed and to guide you through the exam.
Traditional ultrasounds use a handheld transducer that relies on the technologist to evaluate specific areas of tissue. While ultrasound technologists are highly trained, traditional ultrasounds on dense tissue and tissue obscured by implants can be [...]
The SonoCine Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS) is an FDA Cleared adjunct screening solution. This technology is a computer-guided ultrasound system designed to be used in addition to your traditional mammogram. SonoCine AWBUS uses a [...]
