ClearPEM-Sonic is a mammography scanner that combines Positron Emission Tomography with 3D ultrasound echographic and elastographic imaging. It has been developed to improve early stage detection of breast cancer by combining metabolic and anatomical information. The PET system has been developed by the Crystal Clear Collaboration, while the 3D ultrasound probe has been provided by SuperSonic Imagine. In this framework, the visualization and fusion software is an essential tool for the radiologists in the diagnostic process. This contribution discusses the design choices, the issues faced during the implementation, and the commissioning of the software tools developed for ClearPEM-Sonic.

Abstract

ClearPEM-Sonic is a mammography scanner that combines Positron Emission Tomography with 3D ultrasound echographic and elastographic imaging. It has been developed to improve early stage detection of breast cancer by combining metabolic and anatomical information. The PET system has been developed by the Crystal Clear Collaboration, while the 3D ultrasound probe has been provided by SuperSonic Imagine. In this framework, the visualization and fusion software is an essential tool for the radiologists in the diagnostic process. This contribution discusses the design choices, the issues faced during the implementation, and the commissioning of the software tools developed for ClearPEM-Sonic.
