About SuperSonic Imagine
SuperSonic Imagine was founded in 2005, its corporate headquarters are in the Aix-en-Provence of France, with a dedicated US HQ in Florida. They design, develop and market a revolutionary ultrasound machine called the Aixplorer®, with UltraFast™ imaging – which allows the equipment to acquire images 200 times faster than conventional ultrasound systems. Additionally, SuperSonic Imagine is the pioneer of ShearWave™ Elastography. Over the past 10 years, they’ve continued to be the Market leader in this technology.
ShearWave Elastography (SWE) allows physicians to visualize, analyze and measure the stiffness of tissue in real-time, non-invasively. Two areas where this technology is currently used is in Breast and Liver imaging. In Breast imaging SWE has been proven to be a complimentary tool for the management of breast cancer patients in lesion characterization, surgical planning and therapy monitoring. Over 100 clinical publications have demonstrated the reliability and effectiveness of Aixplorer® for the assessment of liver fibrosis, and with SWE you can estimate liver stiffness in a single acquisition, a key factor in assessing liver disease.
