PIUR Imaging launches new 3D ultrasound angiography


PIUR Imaging has announced the launch of new applications for their vascular tomographic ultrasound solution, PIUR tUS, in Europe.

The new applications include three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound angiography for high-resolution imaging of carotid stenosis and multi-scan acquisitions that allow large volume imaging of peripheral vessels. A CE mark is expected in December 2017.

PIUR tUS extends regular ultrasound devices with a tomographic function so physicians can produce 3D diagnostic information without the need for X-rays or nephrotoxic contrast. Optimised usability and a high degree of automatisation improves diagnostic workflows and communication between physicians.

The new applications complements existing features of PIUR´s first tomographic ultrasound solution, launched in Autumn 2016, that include EVAR surveillance and vascular mapping. Contrast-enhanced tomographic ultrasound can be a safe alternative solution for EVAR surveillance, with higher sensitivity than CTA for endoleak detection, and more accuracy in its classification, according to a study published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery by the University of Manchester in 2017.
