BVN™ G-1000 Summary
MetriTrack’s initial product, BVN™ (Breast Volume Navigator) G-1000, is designed to precisely and instantly perform automated 3D mapping of breast tissue in hand held ultrasound images, regardless of deformation or patient motion; essential for diagnostic and treatment purposes in the age of multi-modality imaging and not available with other systems.
The new proprietary technology relies on few miniature positional sensors and algorithms, which generate precise position data.
The unique features of BVN™ G-1000, a class-II (non-invasive) medical device which integrates with existing breast ultrasound equipment, eliminate multiple operator-dependent steps enabling reliable and convenient annotation of breast ultrasound images (i.e., record the locations of objects within).
The ease and accuracy with which lesions in breast ultrasound exams can be annotated is surprisingly significant. At current reimbursement rates, reducing the time required to annotate a breast lesion may convert the breast ultrasound exam from a loss-leader into one that is profitable. More importantly, the ability to use enhanced position annotations to more precisely relocate small breast lesions may profoundly improve the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer.
