Hitachi Ultrasound Highlights Elastography Capabilities at RSNA Annual Meeting

At this year’s RSNA Annual Meeting in Chicago, Hitachi Medical Systems America will demonstrate advances for the HI VISION™ 900 system as well as unique probe-based solutions, which allow radiology departments to utilize the equipment in their department more efficiently.

A highlight of its exhibition is new developments in Hitachi’s Real-time Tissue Elastography (E-mode) feature. Hitachi reported, with over 800 units delivered, Hitachi’s E-mode is now being used for applications other than just breast imaging. The company will display images of its use in thyroid, prostate, musculoskeletal and colorectal applications. Its new Strain Ratio tool allows Radiologists to quantify the relative differences in stiffness between a mass and any surrounding tissue.
