From pop to opera (sound works) December 1, 2007

Advanced Imaging Technologies (AIT) presented it’s new ARIA ultrasound breast imaging system at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). This device is the winner of 2007 Frost & Sullivan’s Technology Innovation Award for ultrasound devices.aria

In essence, the ARIA imaging system uses the diffractive properties of sound combined with holography to create highly-detailed, dynamic 3D images of breast tissue. In transmission optical holography an image is obtained using the interference of two coherent acoustic sources, one being the transmitted wave and the other one, a reference wave. The resulting image is a true hologram!

Unlike reflective ultrasound the ARIA Breast Imaging System delivers 97% of the critical data you need for confident decision making. We use the whole wave to create our images, not he 3% that bounces back.

The company believes that its system delivers better sensitivity for detection of masses in women with dense breast tissue.
