Transmission and Reflection Ultrasound Imaging


The reflection images are refraction corrected by utilizing the transmission data – the
speed of sound - traveling through human breast tissue. Additionally, TechniScan has
incorporated a 3D version of B-mode ultrasound (or reflective ultrasound) into the
SVARA™ imaging platform. The unique combination of these image-generating proc-
esses will provide physicians with a new way of interpreting ultrasound images as well
as new information about the bulk tissue properties of the breast.
