The SoftVue™ 3D Whole Breast Ultrasound Tomography system
DISCOVER A GENTLER OPTION
FOR DENSE BREAST SCREENING
WHAT ARE DENSE BREASTS?
Breasts are composed of both glandular tissue and fat.
Having dense breasts means that you have more glandular tissue in your breasts than fat. Breast density is not something you can feel or visualize. The only way to determine breast density is through mammography.
However, having dense breasts impacts the ability to detect breast cancer using mammography. The reason is because both dense glandular tissue and cancer appear white on a mammogram, making it dicult to detect cancer surrounded by dense breast tissue.
Women with dense breasts have a 4-6 times greater risk of developing breast cancer compared to women with fattier breasts.

THE SOFTVUE™ DIFFERENCE
SoftVue™ is an unparalleled 3D whole breast ultrasound tomography system unique to medical imaging.
SoftVue is FDA approved specifically for dense breast cancer screening. While mammography can miss cancer in women with dense breasts, SoftVue in combination with mammography increases cancer detection by 20%. The exam is comfortable with no compression and no radiation. It operates with the same kind of harmless sound waves used for pregnant women to image their babies before birth. The exam is discrete and takes just a few minutes for each breast.
In fact, more than 90% of women who have had a SoftVue exam found it to be the most comfortable breast exam they have experienced and would recommend SoftVue to other women.
The Softvue™ Scan Sequence Has 4 Steps:
Patient lies on her stomach on the padded-table top and lowers one breast into the warm water of the imaging chamber.
The Sequr™ breast interface engages with the front of her breast to center, shape, and steady it.
The scan is activated, and the ring transducer moves along the breast, imaging all levels.
Patient raises up and places second breast into warm water imaging chamber and engages with Sequr breast interface.
