ElastoScan™ enables the imaging of malignant tumors and other diseases that would normally be undetectable through conventional studies

ElastoScan™ detects the presence of a solid mass in tissue using ultrasound, and subsequently converts the stiffness into images. Since many tumors have tissue characteristics that are harder than the surrounding tissues, they appear less elastic than the surrounding tissue, and so the difference in tissue elasticity provides clearer contrast and can be used to verify the presence of a lesion.

ElastoScan™ shows how tissues move between pre and post-compression images. In other words, it describes the different rates of movement caused by compression of the probe. ElastoScan™ is normally used as an additional method to verify the state of the region; for instance, in breast or prostate applications, ElastoScan™ is used after applying palpation, blood tests and 2D exam methods, to confirm the state of the region.

High Performance
  • - High sensitivity: easy to detect, and quick assessments
  • - High accuracy
  • - Highly reproducible
Easy to Use
  • - Easy﹣to﹣operate elastography
  • - Data acquisition techniques similar to those currently used in ultrasound diagnosis
  • - Track tissue motion in two dimensions
  • - Simultaneously provide real-time elasticity images and normal B-mode images
Clinical Advantages
  • - Imaging of cancerous tumors and various diseases that might otherwise go undetected in conventional studies
  • - Improving the detection and differentiation of early malignant diseases
  • - Additional tool that can reduce the burden of further investigations

ElastoScan™ for obstetrics and gynecology - The ability to present changes in consistency of the uterine cervix during pregnancy

In some cases, it is impossible to assess the condition of cervix by palpation. Cervix Elastoscan™ enables more accurate assessment of the condition of the cervix.
