Company leaders say the software aims to expand breast cancer detection with ultrasound into physician's offices, mammography centers, and underserved international markets.
The company has filed for a patent on MC-mode, which detects microcalcifications and their locations from their vibration. The company also filed a patent on differentiating between type-1 and type-2 microcalcifications.
