Diamond is the new platform for digital imaging applications, including 3D imaging, while Performa is a new high-performance, high-throughput unit. Diamond can assist in biopsy procedures and difficult patient positioning problems, with its ParkBack function that allows the user to drive the tube back from above the image receptor, creating a truly open workspace and giving free access to the breast.

3D ultrasound upgrade

Integrated Equipment Solutions (Omaha, Neb.) has begun distribution of BabyFace, a 3D ultrasound upgrade accessory. The plug-and-play unit, generally mounted in the peripheral device bay of an ultrasound system, transforms a standard 2D ultrasound system into a 3D imaging system. Scanning procedures and diagnostic routines are not interrupted during the imaging process, as the position-tracking device does not rely on any external components such as magnetic fields. The system includes a transducer with an integrated motion-tracking sensor and a compact electronic box with a miniature computer. It connects easily to conventional ultrasound units and users can switch modes with the touch of a button.
