  • Called SonixEmbrace, the scanner is five times faster and is less prone to imaging variations caused by differences in scanning methods, according to the company. The system uses a concave ultrasound transducer that rotates 360° to capture uncompressed breast images.

    SonixEmbrace is integrated with the company's research platform and is well-suited for research on cancer detection and treatment monitoring. It can also be used with reconstructed B-mode ultrasound planes. Data from the system can also be integrated with CT and MRI data for a more complete picture of the breast.
