SonoCiné utilizes the most advanced medical imaging scanners, including the Siemens Acuson Sequoia™ and the Philips HDI 5000™, to generate image sequences. These sequences are then reconstructed by SonoCiné's viewing system into both 2D and 3D interactive ciné loops.

Kevin M. Kelly, MD, the inventor of SonoCiné, credits Firehand Technologies Corporation and its founder Matthew W. Smith for the computer technology that enabled his invention.

At present, the most important investigational use of SonoCiné is computer-guided ultrasound whole-breast cancer detection. The SonoCiné breast cancer detection process collects 2,000 to 5,000 permanent ultrasound images from throughout both breasts and optimally presents these images for later radiologist review on a high-resolution monitor. Although SonoCiné is still undergoing clinical evaluation, data to date suggest that when used with mammography, SonoCiné whole-breast ultrasound may reduce the chance of undetected breast cancer and the necessity of radical or invasive treatment through early detection.

SonoCiné, Inc. anticipates that upon FDA approval, there will be significant demand for its products and services, especially for SonoCiné whole-breast ultrasound because breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death and illness in women worldwide.
