A new ultrasound CT breast WBU (Warm Bath Ultrasound) Scanner developed by Techniscan Medical Systems, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, and supported by Esaote Spa, Genoa, Italy, was installed for pre-clinical testing at the Department of Radiology, Clinical Radiology, University Medical Center Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany. The system acquires a volume dataset of both transmission and reflection of the whole breast. A 3D inverse scattering algorithm generates 3D maps of both speed of sound and… CONTINUE READING
