Advanced Diagnostics (ADI), which develops products based on its diffractive ultrasound technology, has changed its name to Advanced Imaging Technologies (AIT). The Preston, Washington based-company believes that although diagnostic use of diffractive ultrasound will remain its key focus, it also has potential in instrument guidance and treatment planning. Diffractive ultrasound, which uses "through wave" transmission of sound to create detailed mages of soft tissue, has been used to create AIT's first product using the technology, the Avera breast imaging system. Avera provides real-time imaging without the need for radiation or painful compression, the company says.
