11/8/2012 10:53:30 AM
AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SuperSonic Imagine, the innovative ultrasound company, has developed a breakthrough technology called ShearWave Elastography, which images tissue stiffness in real-time and has been shown to be effective in the visualization of different stages of fibrosis leading up to cirrhosis. Aixplorer ShearWave Elastography is the only mode cleared by the FDA to add a real-time, adjustable numerical scale in meters per second that measures shear wave velocity in tissue. The clinical and economic impact of this technique could be significant given the massive number of people infected with hepatitis B and C worldwide. The technology may also enable physicians to follow disease progression or regression.
