Ultrasound vendor Medison America has introduced a new accessory for its Voluson 530D 3-D ultrasound system, a breast probe that will allow clinicians to visualize lesions, tumors, and other abnormalities as 3-D shapes. The probe consists of an electronic broadband 5 to 10-MHz transducer with a center frequency of 7.5 MHz.

The probe can be used not only for breast cancer imaging, but also for thyroid and testicular cancer imaging, according to Dennis Wisher, director of ultrasound education. Since the probe is held in one position while it gathers 3-D volume data, it eliminates the need for sonographers to move a transducer over the patient’s skin, therefore reducing scan time and increasing accuracy, the company said. 3-D images generated by the probe can be rotated, and users can manipulate images with Medison’s ultrasound software, which includes niche, transparent, trapezoid, surface rendering, and live 3-D modes.
