SoftVueTM Exam Process
Subtle recessed lighting contours the SoftVue™ system, with a rainbow of selectable colors to match décor and mood, while an integrated footstep and softly-curved arches for hand placements offer a secure and easy approach. SoftVue™ features a padded table-top allowing for comfort during the exam.
SoftVue™ has received FDA clearance for diagnostic imaging purposes and is not intended for use as a replacement for screening mammography.
Step One – The technologist assists the woman onto the table and helps position her on her stomach.
Step Two – Once on her stomach, one breast is suspended into a warm water reservoir.
Step Three – A soft gel guide, the Sequr™ Breast Interface, engages with the front of the breast to center, shape and steady it during the procedure.
Step Four – The volumetric ring transducer encircles the breast, imaging from the nipple to the chest wall in 2 millimeter intervals.
Step Five – When the scan of the first breast is complete, the patient raises and places her second breast in the water and the same process is employed to complete the scanning process.
