Quantitative Transmission Imaging

AN EVOLUTION IN BREAST IMAGING

An innovative, FDA cleared, technology
based on low frequency soundwaves,
using true 3D acquisition.1

THE QT EXPERIENCE

The way breast
imaging should be

  • Innovative system prioritizing patient comfort and safety
  • Delivering high-quality, high-resolution, quantitative 3D images
  • Eliminating uncomfortable, painful breast compression
  • No radiation exposure
  • No need for contrast agents or injections
  • Affordable and accessible
NIH awards
QT Imaging over
$15M
(over multiple grants)
for new women’s
imaging solution

The National Cancer Institute, part of The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded grants of over $15 million to fund the development of this technology and our clinical trials.

FDA grants
510(k) clearance
for the QT scanner

QTI’s Breast Acoustic CT Scanner has received FDA 510(k) marketing clearance for use as an ultrasonic imaging system of a patient’s breast. The device is not intended to be used as a replacement for screening mammography.

The clearest picture is our greatest asset

The clearest picture is our greatest asset

Dense breasts are common. In fact, about 50% of women in the US and more than 75% of women in Asia have dense breasts. With images that show clear information about breast tissue, our goal is to identify what is benign, and what’s problematic.

CHANGING THE PARADIGM OF BREAST IMAGING

The QTscan® can characterize and isolate certain tissue types based on speed of sound. 2

  • True volumetric, quantitative images2
  • Unimpeded visibility of dense breast tissue
