Powerful Imaging Architecture
Invenia ABUS’s imaging architecture shifts traditional ultrasound from hardware- to software-based processing, resulting in extraordinary performance for the fast-paced breast imaging environment. With its massive parallel processing power and proprietary beamforming technology, the system creates focus at every pixel, delivering an image of high uniformity and resolution.
Intelligent Imaging Algorithms
Advanced algorithms automate the imaging process to help provide remarkable image quality and reproducibility from user to user, these include: Tissue Equalization, Nipple Shadow Compensation, Breast Border Detection and Chest Wall Detection. All of these are all designed to eliminate the distractions, and focus the Physician's attention on the most important data – the anatomy.
Operator workflow is smooth and easy with the Invenia ABUS high-resolution touchscreen display’s advanced Projective Capacitive Touch (PCT) technology. Its sleek, graphical user interface enhances the way you work. Tap and swipe colorful icons to quickly and easily maneuver through the Invenia ABUS exam.
Transducer shaped for a woman’s anatomy
The Reverse Curve™ transducer offers extraordinary image performance, enhanced breast coverage with uniform compression
and patient comfort. It is an extraordinary new class of transducer design conforms to a woman’s anatomy.
The Invenia ABUS provides Compression Assist to the scan head assembly. This feature automatically applies up to 3 levels of compression to the breast for patient comfort, operator ease and image acquisition quality.
Efficient reading and analysis
Images generated from the Invenia ABUS Scan Station are sent to the Invenia ABUS Workstation for interpretation, enabling fast, quick review and may be archived to PACS or external storage to optimize breast ultrasound workflow.
The workstation’s intelligent tools provide efficient exam reading and analysis within 3 minutes 1 - which offers remarkable time saving for physicians compared to handheld ultrasound.
3D volumes are displayed in a patented, 2 mm thick coronal view slice from the skin to the chest wall using proprietary pattern recognition software. The result is a reading environment which allows for rapid and intuitive analysis of intricate breast anatomy and pathology.
