The QT Difference
An evolution in breast imaging.
Quantitative Transmission (QT) Ultrasound is a powerful and emerging technology, with FDA clearance, as an adjunct to mammography, based on tomographic transmission ultrasound and capable of generating 3D speed-of-sound images.
You are 3-dimensional. That’s why we image you that way.
Traditionally imaging takes pictures of your breasts in 2-dimensional views or uses them to reconstruct three dimensional images. QT Ultrasound captures the third dimension, and a world of difference.
The automation advantage.
With the QTscan, the process is almost entirely automated, reducing any variables due to human error. Which means your scans are completely reproducible, no matter who is operating the device. This makes it easier to detect any changes in your breasts over time.
Advances so remarkable, you might sleep through them.
When it’s time for your scan, one of our friendly staff members will help you lie face down on a bed, submerging just your breast in a tank full of warm water through an opening in the tabletop.
When the operator starts the scan, three transducers, which generate and detect sound waves, rotate around the breast in its natural form underwater to produce a 3D image of the breast tissue. There’s no compression and no radiation.
The clearest picture is our greatest asset.
Dense breasts are common. Changes to breast tissue due to aging is normal. Even cysts are typical. Did you know that over 90% of “abnormal” mammograms are a part of normal breast changes during life?
When we have images that show clear information about your breast tissue, we hope to identify what is benign, and what’s problematic. Our studies are moving us closer to understanding the difference, and our research trials are designed to see if new technology can make unnecessary callbacks a thing of the past.
