A non-profit company dedicated to providing technological innovations, products and services to promote sustainable resource management and an improved quality of life, has developed a transducer for 3D holographic, non-invasive, ultrasound exams of the abdomen, breasts, or joints.

The technology enables clinicians to carry out preventative, and post-operative breast exams as often as necessary using a holographic ultrasound exam. The images have a higher resolution than standard ultrasound exams, and can reduce the number of false-positive, and false-negative exam findings. The holographic images can be reproduced for mammography using computer-based and automated data interpretation, and can detect changes down to a size of 0.1 mm, including micro-calcifications.

The ultrasound transducer was developed by Innovision (Edelsfeld, Germany) and does away with the need for repositioning for images at various angles.

The system can also be used with a breast scan station in which the woman’s breast hangs freely in a water container. The station measures the breast within several seconds producing a 3D ultrasound image of the breast that can be read by an ultrasound specialist, or automatically compared with previous examinations using automated software algorithms. The 3D holographic ultrasound technology is inexpensive, fast, safe, and painless.

Helmut Strehl, managing director, Innovision, said, "Our innovations make it possible for us to establish many not for profit corporations worldwide and create jobs for thousands of disadvantaged people. Our fast, gentle and affordable technology also makes it possible to provide currently expensive medical examinations to people who don't have the financial means."
