See the unseen, wherever you are with the first wireless, handheld breast ultrasound scanner with exceptional imaging

Delivering exceptional image quality at the point of care, the Viera wireless ultrasound scanner provides physicians with the opportunity for earlier diagnoses and an optimized clinical workflow – all at a fraction of the cost of larger, mid-tier cart systems.
 
“Viera has immensely improved my workflow. I find the image quality is equivalent to the larger, more cumbersome ultrasound I had before. Now, I can quickly move from patient to patient rather than waiting to use just one ultrasound room.” – Kelly Dempsey, MD, Southwest Surgical Associates
 
Thanks to its portability, the system offers an efficient way to perform guided interventional procedures, like biopsies, marker placements, and wire localizations anywhere, anytime. In fact, Viera portable breast ultrasound allows radiologists to confidently guide greater than 90% of interventional breast procedures.i

Missouri Passes Breast Tomosynthesis Coverage Bill

 

Before resigning, former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens signed HB 1252 into law, requiring the state’s insurers to provide benefits and coverage for both 2D mammography and breast tomosynthesis beginning January 1, 2019.

 
 

Annual Mammograms Beginning at 40 Offer Best Odds of Surviving Breast Cancer

 

A study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology found women who prioritize annual mammograms starting at the age of 40 have the greatest chance of catching, treating and surviving breast cancer. Study authors also noted that women who took the annual screening route saw a 37.3% reduced overall mortality rate compared to a biennial screening program.
