SuperSonic™ MACH™ 40 Ultrasound System with UltraFast™ Imaging

Innovation and Integration, today and tomorrow

Hologic's new high-performance SuperSonic MACH 40 ultrasound system is designed to help increase efficiency and diagnostic accuracy in your practice.

Your exams are about to benefit from a new kind of ultrasound experience – the one that is innovative, intuitive, integrated, and intelligent.

UltraFast™ imaging – The power behind innovations

Inspired by the video gaming industry, the intelligent signal processing with image capture capacity of up to 20,000 frames per second,1 brings unlimited possibilities into ultrasound imaging:

  • Exceptional imaging - images with reduced speckle, regardless of tissue density, and improved lesion conspicuity for enhanced diagnostic confidence
  • Innovative Modes:
    • ShearWave™ PLUS elastography - real-time tissue stiffness evaluation
    • Angio PLUS imaging - microvascular flow assessment
    • TriVu imaging - simultaneous acquisition of 3 essential characteristics
    • Needle PLUS imaging - needle visibility enhancement during biopsies for improved outcomes and increased patient satisfaction
    • 3D Breast Software (3D Imaging available in December) - based application offering unique visualizations of breast anatomy and detailed characterization of lesions.
  • Future advances - more informed decision-making with a “Unifi-certified” and an “AI-compatible” ultrasound platform.

Intuitive user experience and improved overall comfort

Designed to help create a productive and pain-free environment with a large full HD screen, embedded SonicPad™ touchpad, ergonomic and lightweight transducers, and a low noise level system.

Find out how ShearWave™ PLUS elastography and other unique innovative imaging modes may…

  • aid in the diagnostic work up of breast lesions and thus positively impact patient management.1
  • help with targeting lesions during ultrasound-guided biopsy2
  • contribute to an accurate lesion size measurement3
  • play a role in prognostics and monitoring of breast cancer patients during and after neoadjuvant chemotherapy4
