Whole breast ultrasound technology provides a comfortable, radiation-free method for evaluation of breast lesions, a new study has found.

New Warm Bath Ultrasound (WBU) technology, which was developed by TechniScan, is designed to capture 3D images of the breast using state-of-the-art ultrasound technology in a warm water tank to capture images of the breast anatomy.

Results from a study presented at the National Consortium of Breast Centers conference in Las Vegas indicate strong potential for the technology, which images cysts, fibroadenomas and cancers in a different way to mammography.

The WBU system uses traditional reflection imaging, but uniquely, it also measures the speed of sound and attenuation as sound waves travel through the breast.

The automated WBU scanning system was shown to be easy to use, requiring minimal training. The system is also quick (approximately 12 minutes per breast) and required no breast compression.
