SuperSonic Imagine (Aix-en-Provence, France) featured its new Aixplorer MACH 30 ultrasound system at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting held in Chicago, Ill., USA, from November 25 - 30. The Aixplorer MACH 30 platform is ready for AI where massive amounts of data can be analyzed with speed, improving detection and quantification to support decision-making.
SuperSonic Imagine manufactures the Aixplorer series of ultrasound medical imaging products, with the Aixplorer MACH 30 ultrasound platform being the latest addition to the Aixplorer range. The Aixplorer MACH 30 features SonicPad, a new concept in ultrasound that is designed to enhance the user’s intuitive control of the functions needed during an examination. SonicPad has been found to reduce the number of hand gestures for an exam by up to 77%, which represents up to 32% reduction of time per exam. This allows physicians to focus on the clinical information displayed on the screen instead of the controls used to optimize image acquisition.
The Aixplorer MACH 30 also includes the next generation of UltraFast imaging technology that enables acquisition rates 200 times faster than conventional ultrasound systems and optimizes the system’s innovative imaging modes: ShearWave PLUS, Doppler UltraFast, Angio PL.U.S, and TriVu.
“SuperSonic Imagine is pushing the boundaries of ultrasound imaging with the new Aixplorer MACH 30 platform, and we’re thrilled to bring the technology to radiologists at RSNA 2018,” said SuperSonic Imagine CEO MicheÌle Lesieur. “Our company has been breaking new ground in ultrasound since we introduced the Aixplorer in 2009. The Aixplorer MACH 30 is a continuation of that innovation. It combines advanced imaging and diagnostic technologies with unparalleled power and ease of use.”
“We’ve been receiving very positive feedback on the Aixplorer MACH 30 from our physicians. All users have been extremely enthusiastic about the innovative modes and exceptional image quality. They especially appreciated the new user interface and the innovative SonicPad, which improves workflow and greatly reduces the number of hand gestures resulting in reduced exam times and increased user comfort. The importance of AI capabilities for future applications was also a consideration when purchasing a new ultrasound system,” said Alex Exposito, North America Director of SuperSonic Imagine.
