Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2022/118145
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
Ultrasound device (1) for carrying out a breast diagnostic examination for breast cancer diagnosis, comprising two ultrasound probes (10, 20), characterized in that each of said probes (10, 20) comprises: a first array (11, 21) of piezoelectric transducers with a first nominal frequency (fl), and a second array of piezoelectric transducers (12, 22) with a second nominal frequency (f2), said probes (10, 20) being arranged opposite to each other, being configured to rotate along a circular trajectory having for centre the midpoint of the segment connecting them and to slide to each other along said straight line connecting them, so that they come in contact with the breast of the patient from diametrically opposite portions, in that said arrays (11, 12, 21, 22) comprise each a plurality of piezoelectric transducers, positioned so that acquisitions are carried out on a plane of acquisition orthogonal to the plane of said circular trajectory, and in that said device is configured to carry out, by moving said probes (10, 20) along said circular trajectory, a plurality of scans relative to a plurality of planes of acquisition (P0, P1...) passing through said midpoint, orthogonal to said circular trajectory and rotated to each other of an angle (α).
