France, Nov. 13, 2014 – (Posted by Anonymous) SuperSonic Imagine, a company based in Aix-en-Provence (France), was set up by two former senior executives from Philips Medical. Jacques Souquet, its CEO and co-founder, was also behind Sonosite, a medical ultrasound medtech company sold to the Japanese giant Fuji for almost a billion dollars. “Our disruptive innovation enables image acquisition at very high rates – up to 20,000 images per second – i.e. 200 times faster than the fastest conventional ultrasound system,” explains Souquet. By offering this new imaging mode, which enables practitioners to quantify, view and analyse tissue stiffness in real-time using non-invasive techniques, the Aixplorer ultrasound system makes diagnoses more reliable and reduces the number of unnecessary biopsies.
