By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

June 17, 2021 -- UltraVision recently announced it has developed a patent-pending software to visualize microcalcifications for breast cancer diagnosis and biopsy guidance.

The software, called MC-mode, can be implemented on ultrasound scanners and used for visualizing microcalcifications, with the initial application being Ultravision's point-of-care ultrasound scanner, UltraVision-XS.

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.
