SuperSonic Imagine Spotlights Groundbreaking Aixplorer® MACH 30 Platform at RSNA 2018

November 19, 2018

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SuperSonic Imagine (Euronext: SSI, FR0010526814), a company specializing in ultrasound medical imaging, today announced that it will feature the new Aixplorer® MACH 30 ultrasound system at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting at McCormick Place, Chicago, November 25 - 30. The powerful new Aixplorer MACH 30 platform combines a sleek design, intuitive user experience, unmatched speed, and ready for AI where massive amounts of data can be analyzed with unmatched speed, improving detection and quantification to support decision-making.

“SuperSonic Imagine is pushing the boundaries of ultrasound imaging with the new Aixplorer MACH 30 platform, and we’re thrilled to bring the technology to radiologists at RSNA 2018,” said SuperSonic Imagine CEO Michèle Lesieur. “Our company has been breaking new ground in ultrasound since we introduced the Aixplorer in 2009. The Aixplorer MACH 30 is a continuation of that innovation. It combines advanced imaging and diagnostic technologies with unparalleled power and ease of use.”

“We’ve been receiving very positive feedback on the Aixplorer MACH 30 from our physicians. All users have been extremely enthusiastic about the innovative modes and exceptional image quality. They especially appreciated the new user interface and the innovative SonicPad® which improves workflow and greatly reduces the number of hand gestures resulting in reduced exam times and increased user comfort. The importance of AI capabilities for future applications was also a consideration when purchasing a new ultrasound system,” said Alex Exposito, North America Director of SuperSonic Imagine.

The Aixplorer MACH 30 features a new concept in ultrasound, the revolutionary SonicPad™, designed to enhance the user’s intuitive control of the functions needed during an examination. The number of hand gestures for an exam were reduced by up to 77%, which represents up to 32% reduction of time per exam. Physicians can focus on the clinical information displayed on the screen, rather than on the controls used to optimize image acquisition. Larger monitors add to the Aixplorer MACH 30’s comfort and ease of use.

The Aixplorer MACH 30 includes a new generation of UltraFast™ imaging, technology that enables acquisition rates 200 times faster than conventional ultrasound systems, now with innovative modes to enhance diagnostic performance. Thus, a new generation of ShearWave Elastography (SWE PLUS), which allows users to view and measure tissue stiffness in real-time on a color map, has significantly faster acquisition time and greater examination depth. B-mode performance is setting new imaging standards with the addition of new optimized probes on the Aixplorer MACH 30, including a new high-frequency abdominal C9-2X probe.

RSNA 2018 attendees are invited to visit SuperSonic Imagine’s booth #8139 in the North Hall, where live demonstrations with models will include the Aixplorer MACH 30 and Aixplorer Ultimate. In addition to experiencing the New Aixplorer MACH 30 on the SuperSonic Imagine booth, Aixplorer Series products will be utilized in the RSNA hands on workshops.
