Automated Breast Tomography SystemAn efficient tool enabling the supplemental Imaging of Dense Breast PatientsSOFIA offers a fully automated scan procedure providing rapid whole breast image acquisition with one button operation. Patients can be scheduled every 10 minutes for a bilateral breast examination. This automated process does not require operator interaction during the scanning procedure, ensuring reproducibility and efficiency. Due to the prone position of the breast and tomographic reconstruction of images, SOFIA™ data sets can be compared in the same plane and orientation as those acquired with other tomographic modalities such as DBT and MRI.
SOFIA's touchscreen user interface provides operators with intuitive icon driven menus for ease of operation. The Pre-Scan menu allows the operator to perform a 360° rapid review scan to confirm optimization of scan parameters (Depth, Focal Zones, DR, TGC). The Automated Scan menu allows the operator to perform a fully automated whole breast scan without user interaction once the Start icon is selected. Images are automatically acquired and stored for post processing. The Manual Scan menu allows the operator to advance or reverse the transducer position. Probe location is mapped and displayed graphically for instant user feedback. This feature allows the operator also to perform additional ultrasound procedures such as Doppler and elastography examinations
