Supersonic to debut quantification tools at RSNA 2019.

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

November 26, 2019 -- Ultrasound equipment manufacturer SuperSonic Imagine will be debuting three new quantitative liver ultrasound applications at the upcoming RSNA 2019 meeting in Chicago.
The first two tools, Att Plus and SSp Plus, are designed to simultaneously quantify ultrasound attenuation in the liver and intrahepatic speed of sound to reflect fat content for detecting and diagnosing hepatic steatosis, according to the vendor.
The third new tool, Vi Plus, works in combination with real-time elasticity imaging to visualize and quantify tissue viscosity. These viscosity assessments provide clinicians with information for tissue characterization.

Liver Health: Three New Ultrasound Markers Enter the U.S. Market
SuperSonic Imagine, a major actor promoting innovation in ultrasound, will introduce a suite of three ultrasound markers for non-invasive assessment of the severity of chronic liver diseases with quantitative results: Att PLUS, SSp PLUS and Vi PLUS. The first two of these tools allow for the simultaneous quantification of ultrasound attenuation in the liver and intrahepatic sound speed, reflecting fat content, an essential criterion for the detection and diagnosis of hepatic steatosis. Coupled with elasticity imaging in real time, the third one, Vi PLUS, makes it possible to visualise and quantify tissue viscosity, providing clinicians with important information for tissue characterisation.
“Liver diseases including non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) linked to conditions like diabetes and obesity affect millions of Americans and have become an important public health concern in the space of just a few years. We are very proud to present the fruits of our expertise in liver health  the series of three non-invasive liver markers  for the first time in the United States. All the more so as these markers have just received 510(k) clearance from the FDA. Following the acquisition of SuperSonic Imagine by Hologic, we are also going to present many shared sessions dedicated to women's health,” concludes Michèle Lesieur, the CEO of SuperSonic Imagine.
