Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI) is an innovative ultrasound Doppler technique developed by Toshiba. SMI offers a unique algorithm that allows visualization of microvasculature with low velocity but without using any contrast agents.
The advantages of SMI include
1) low velocity flow visualization,
2) high resolution
3) minimal motion artefact,
4) high frame rates.
The exceptional vessel detection ability allows SMI to be of benefit in the evaluation and treatment of liver diseases.
SMI has potential in:
i. Display of minute intra-lesional
ii. Evaluating RFA treatment
iii. Support RFA planning and guiding.
Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI)*
Toshiba's innovative Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI) technology expands the range of visible blood flow and provides visualization of low velocity microvascular flow never before seen with ultrasound.
SMI's level of vascular visualization, combined with high frame rates, advances diagnostic confidence when evaluating lesions, cysts and tumors, improving patient outcomes and experience.
Improve Accuracy and Speed with SMI
Getting accurate diagnostic information faster is just one reason why Toshiba’s Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI) is an integral part of operations for our partners at Rex Healthcare.
