ATL Ultrasound has launched the second generation of its SonoCT Real-time Compound Imaging ultrasound technology—which was the industry’s first tomographic ultrasound system. It will show the new system at this year’s RSNA meeting.

Second-generation SonoCT imaging brings the technology to a broader range of scanheads and merges it with advanced signal processing technologies, such as tissue harmonic imaging, and display technologies such as 3-D and panoramic ultrasound.

SonoCT imaging processes up to nine distinct lines of sight and compounds them in real-time, resulting in images that contain diagnostic information unobtainable by conventional single-line-of-sight ultrasound. Second-generation SonoCT imaging is available on the HDI 5000 or as an upgrade option for existing HDI 5000 systems.
