Delivering exceptional image quality at the point of care, the Viera wireless ultrasound scanner provides physicians with the opportunity for earlier diagnoses and an optimized clinical workflow – all at a fraction of the cost of larger, mid-tier cart systems.

Thanks to its portability, the system offers an efficient way to perform guided interventional procedures, like biopsies, marker placements, and wire localizations anywhere, anytime. In fact, Viera portable breast ultrasound allows radiologists to confidently guide greater than 90 percent of interventional breast procedures.1
