Automated whole breast ultrasound systems were already available in the 1980's but the technique was not viable for clinical use at that time. The newest generation of automated breast ultrasound systems such as GE Invenia ABUS, Siemens Acuson S2000 ABVS and Hitachi's Sofia are equipped with high-end hardware an software that allows these systems to be easily implemented into breast care clinics.
