HOW DOES IT WORK?
You lie on your back and the SonoCiné AWBUS system sequentially scans your breasts in rows from below the clavicle to the lower margin of the breasts, also including the evaluation of the axillary, infraclavicular regions and inter-inframammary regions, in the same exploratory time.
The entire process takes less than 20 minutes, including explanation of the procedure, preparation, scanning, and dressing. Watch the exam video for more information.

1) Preparation of the patient:
SonoCiné has developed a patented camisole that fits like a sports bra, keeping the breasts in place and providing a sense of privacy. A patented hydrogel nipple pad improves patient comfort and enhances images of the nipple region.
2) Examination of the patient:
Similar to a handheld ultrasound, the woman lies on her back while the scan rows are captured sequentially from below the clavicle to the lower margin of the breast. This process, including preparation, examination, and room rotation, takes less than 30 minutes and can be scheduled.
3) Interpretation of the results
The SonoCiné exam is recorded as a video, to which the physician can then give their full attention in a distraction-free environment. This screening method has been shown to increase detection of cancers as small as 3-5mm to 10mm in size.
