April 3, 2019 — SuperSonic Imagine will introduce the new generation of its Aixplorer Mach 30 breast ultrasound solution at the 2019 Society of Breast Imaging/American College of Radiology (SBI/ACR) Breast Imaging Symposium, April 4-7 in Hollywood, Fla. The SBI‘s annual symposium is the largest breast imaging conference in the world and this year, the symposium will focus on Value in Breast Imaging. SuperSonic Imagine will highlight new features and better performance with features like SWE Plus and SonicPure.The advantages of ShearWave Elastography (SWE) in the diagnosis of mammary lesions has been demonstrated in more than 135 articles in peer-reviewed journals, including an international study involving more than 1,600 patients1in the U.S. and Europe, and another study on population with dense breast realized in China in 1,021 women2. SWE improves the diagnostic performance of conventional ultrasonography by enhancing the characterisation and boosting the specificity of mammary lesions. It makes it possible to decrease the number negative biopsies.The new Aixplorer Mach 30 is equipped with the next generation of ShearWave Plus (SWE Plus) elastography and offers an advanced breast imaging solution with enhanced speed of acquisition.Both 2-D and 3-D patented SWE Plus offers greater performance of real-time, reliable, quantitative and reproducible evaluation of tissue stiffness and visualisation. SWE Plus provides new information and helps improve the identification of malignant or benign lesions. It offers greater diagnostic precision, which considerably reduces the number of false positives and unnecessary biopsies.SuperSonic Imagine also offers numerous innovative imaging modes to improve the efficacy of breast examinations and patient comfort. Needle PL.U.S offers increased reliability during procedures guided by ultrasound and biopsies. The application enables physicians to view anatomical structures and biopsy needles simultaneously and predict their trajectory in real time. Angio PL.U.S offers high resolution for imaging microvascularization of lesions. TriVu combines real-time simultaneous imaging of B-mode, ShearWave Plus and Angio PL.U.S. enabling users to visualize the anatomy, function (tissue stiffness) and blood flow on the same image simultaneously.  Aixplorer Mach 30 features a new concept in ultrasound, according to the company, with its SonicPad touchpad, designed to enhance the user experience. With its intuitive touch screen interface, SonicPad offers intuitive control of all the functions needed to conduct the exam. It allows imagers to focus their attention on analyzing the clinical information displayed on the screen rather than on the controls used to optimise the acquisition of an image.For more information: www.aixplorer-mach.com News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | April 03, 2019 SuperSonic Imagine Highlights Aixplorer Mach 30 Breast Ultrasound at SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium New features on latest generation system include SWE Plus elastography, SonicPad touchpad News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 31, 2019 Studies Confirm Clinical Value of ShearWave Elastography for Liver Fibrosis Evaluation SuperSonic Imagine announced the publication of the results of its prospective multicentric clinical study conducted in… read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

More unis set to charge £9,000 fees

first_imgDurham University said on Wednesday that it intends to charge tuition fees of £9,000 from 2012. Leeds University and the University of Liverpool have also announced their decision to charge the maximum fees.Professor Chris Higgins, Durham’s Vice-Chancellor, justified the decision by citing his belief in the “life-long rewards” of a degree from Durham University, and the employability of its graduates.He added, “With our plans for a generous and flexible programme of financial support, we aim to ensure that affordability will not be a barrier to Durham attracting the best and brightest students.”The decision has been endorsed by the University’s Students’ Union president, Sam Roseveare, who commented, “competition for places in several subjects is the highest in the UK and a Durham degree is worth the investment.“We will now be looking to the University to fulfil its commitment to providing further enhancements to student services and facilities.”However, the move has not been greeted warmly by all of Durham’s students, one of whom told Cherwell, “I think it’s an awful decision. £9,000 is too much, and students are going to start thinking twice about coming here.”A spokeswoman for the University of Liverpool said that the recommendation of £9,000 fees would be put to a university council meeting on the 30th March, as it “will enable the institution to continue to invest in and enhance the student experience, as well as maintain its position as a leading Russell Group institution for widening access.”Commenting on the decision to the BBC, National Union of Students Vice-President Usman Ali said, “It comes as absolutely no surprise that Liverpool University has joined the ever-growing £9,000 group….The government has completely failed to put any restrictions, or even disincentives, in place to stop universities asking for as much money as possible from students.”Professor Malcom Povey, a Leeds University lecturer and member of the University and College Union, said, “The logic of setting up this pseudo-market is that everybody is driven towards charging the highest fee….Students will make judgements…if the fee is lower they will think it is inferior.”Seven universities have now made the decision to charge the maximum fees, including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial and Exeter.David Willets, the government’s Universities Minister, had previously commented that the £9,000 threshold would be charged only in “exceptional cases”. The government has warned that if too many universities charge the top fees it may have to cut teaching grants further to cover the cost of student loans.Labour’s Universities spokesman, Gareth Thomas, has calculated that if all universities charge the top rate, the government’s shortfall will reach £777 million.Other universities, including UCL, Bristol and Southampton, are to make their decisions on tuition fees shortly.last_img

FSA introduces salt calculator for craft bakers

first_imgA new online salt calculator has been launched by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to help craft bakers reduce the amount of salt in their bread.The tool has been designed to help bakers calculate the level of salt in a finished product, which will also enable them to work out how close they are to meeting the 2012 FSA salt targets. It is simple to use, just requiring the baker to enter the amount of flour and salt they are using in a recipe.The calculator has been produced following research carried out by the FSA, the National Association of Master Bakers and Norfolk County Council, which looked at how feasible it would be for the craft industry to reduce salt in bread. The research identified recipe changes “that would allow the production of bread in line with the salt targets”.The recipes were tested in commercial craft bakery premises, in different locations, and using a range of bread-making processes. The findings indicated that these recipes were easy to achieve and acceptable to consumers.”Research also showed that bakers can reduce the level of salt in bread by 25% over six weeks and customers will not notice the difference,” said the FSA.A guide to salt reduction in bread is also available to use alongside the calculator.www.food.gov.uk/healthiereating/ salt/saltcalclast_img
