Fatty Tissue Imaging (FTI) is a speed-of-sound adaptation specifically designed for fatty tissue. FTI optimizes the image in real-time to enhance B-mode image quality with improved lateral and contrast resolution for superior ultrasound imaging of the fatty breast. The ultrasound B-mode image quality is compromised when examining the fatty breast, as the speed-of-sound in fatty tissue is significantly different.
- FTI corrects for phase aberrations caused by the speed-of-sound mismatch and optimizes the image in real-time, resulting in improved lateral resolution and boundary definition.
- Benefits: Improved image quality of the fatty breast
- Clinical applications: Breast imaging
- Additional information: Fatty Tissue Imaging and eSie Touch™ elasticity imaging are packaged as the Breast Imaging Application for ACUSON and SONOLINE Antares™ ultrasound systems.
