Why does breast density matter? 

Women with very dense breasts are four to five times more likely to develop breast cancer than women with low breast density. Plus, dense breast tissue makes it more challenging for physicians to identify cancer on mammograms. 

(At left) Radiologists classify breast density using a 4-level density scale. Breasts that are heterogeneously dense or extremely dense are considered “dense.”  
(A) Fatty; (B) Scattered fibroglandular density; (C) Heterogeneously dense; or (D) Extremely dense.

Benefits of Siemens Healthineers ACUSON S2000 ABVS technology

ACUSON S2000 ABVS provides reproducible results with full-field high-resolution views of the entire breast without exposing the patient to radiation.

  • Generate a coronal view of the breast, which demonstrates global anatomy and symmetry as well as exquisite architectural distortion.
  • Improve ergonomics and decrease operator strain with the Siemens Healthineers-exclusive hands-free locking mechanism of the ACUSON S2000 ABVS transducer pod.
  • Improve efficiency by decreasing exam time and increasing consistency, thanks to 33% fewer tactile keys and a simplified home-base control panel that also optimizes exam workflows.*

Handheld Transducer Capability

The ACUSON S2000 ABVS can be used for both automated breast volume and conventional handheld exams. If a lesion is found, a handheld transducer can be used to acquire additional 2D images, including Color Doppler, Elasticity and Shear Wave Imaging.

  • Instantly perform additional, handheld imaging and procedures--which enhances exam and departmental workflow and improves patient throughput and satisfaction.
  • Easily detach the ultrasound system from the column for use in other departments across a broad spectrum of clinical applications.
