Hitachi Realtime Tissue Elastography (HI-RTE) with HI VISION Ascendus

HI-RTE allows the assessment and real-time colour display of tissue elasticity. The current generation ultrasound modality has proven applications in breast, prostate, thyroid and pancreatic disease and where diagnostic biopsy is indicated, HI-RTE allows more accurate localization and targeting of lesions.

The flagship of Hitachi’s ultrasound platforms, the HI VISION Ascendus benefits from expert modalities such as HI-RTE for imaging tissue elasticity,and dynamic Contrast Harmonic Imaging (dCHI) technology, that enhances visualisation of tissue microvasculature after the injection of an ultrasound contrast agent. Moreover, the HI VISION Ascendus supports new leading edge technologies and is the world’s first product able to display 4-D Real-time Tissue Elastography images so the precise tumour volume can be assessed.

In addition, HI VISION Ascendus offers a unique combination of tools for interventional specialists: Hitachi Real-time Virtual Sonography (HI RVS) for displaying CT or MRI images in real-time alongside ultrasound slices; Real-time Bi-Plane imaging (RTBi); and support for dedicated biopsy, intra-operative and laparoscopic transducers.
