Ultrasound has been widely used in breast cancer detection and diagnosis. As an adjunct tool to mammography, ultrasound can detect small tumors in women with dense breasts. The limitation of conventional breast ultrasound is the hand-held probes. Manually operating ultrasound scanning would be time-consuming and operator-dependency. During the examination, oversight errors could happen and the position locating information may not enough for retrospectively image review.

In response to emerging breast screening populations, quality control of ultrasound scanning should be considered. Leading healthcare providers, including Siemens Healthcare, GE Healthcare and Philip Healthcare, offered automated breast ultrasound system (ABUS) solutions. ABUS uses an automatic mechanism to reduce operator dependence and to perform bilateral exams in just seven minutes. The resulting image volume also provides complete three-dimensional breast structure information for retrospective review.

We are focusing on the growing application of ABUS systems and provide ABUS viewer for physicians to review and mark abnormalities. Another useful tool is computer-aided detection software that automatically detects abnormalities in hundreds of ABUS slices to reduce oversights. The computer-aided positioning and tracking system for breast screening on conventional hand-held ultrasound has also been developed. Our available products are focusing on breast cancer screening to meet the upcoming requirements. Either for images from novel automated breast ultrasound or conventional hand-held ultrasound, the corresponding computer-aided system is already ready.

BR-FHUS Navigation

BR-FHUS Navigation is an auxiliary device that can solve the problems of time-consuming and missing of breast areas during the scanning. In BR-FHUS Navigation, the probe position and a series of 2-D ultrasound images can be tracked and recorded for physicians to retrospectively review. During the scanning, the probe position relative to the nipple is specified with the clock and distance. The recorded images and routes are also shown on the screen for real-time reference.

BR-FHUS Viewer

BR-FHUS Viewer is a standalone software device installed on a windows-based computer to assist the physicians to review a series of 2-D breast ultrasound images recorded by BR-FHUS Navigation. After examination, physicians can load the recorded data, play image sequence, and easily adjust play speed by clicking the Speed Control Buttons. View Coverage mode is a function for verifying the integrity of scanning path and coverage rate for each scan. Select Specific Region is a function assists physician to pick up the image slices located in specific position.

BR-USCADe

BR-USCADe is a powerful software that integrates a computer-aided detection (CADe) algorithm with the BR-Viewer to provide significant assistance to physicians. Scanning a breast may need three passes to cover the whole breast area. For a patient with two breasts, there are at least two scanning and results in two image volumes. Each volume is composed more than three hundred slices. Do an ABUS examination equals reading about thousands of image slices. The overloading of reviewing the image data is a time-consuming task and may cause oversights.
