U-Systems Inc designs, develops and markets innovative, cost-effective, ultrasound systems to assist the radiologist in detection of breast cancer. The company has developed a leadership position in advanced imaging systems and incorporated proprietary hardware and software technology in its first system offering: the Full-Field Breast Ultrasound System (FFBU). The FFBU automatically images the whole-breast and immediately presents the results to the physician in a readily usable format making possible high volume, cost-effective ultrasound imaging of dense breasted women. The FFBU™ system automatically images the whole-breast and provides a unique Somogram™ of the scanned breast. The Somogram is an ultrasound image configured to look like a mammogram in the standard mammographic views
(e.g. CC, MLO). Thus, Somogram allows one-to-one correlation between the ultrasound images and the mammogram, which is expected to improve and enhance the current ultrasound practice in early detection
