About us

Our Story

TRACTUS was founded in 2012 to address the specific need in the healthcare marketplace for a low-cost software & hardware platform for whole breast ultrasound. The combined system uses a unique accessory probe that clips onto standard ultrasound systems, and then integrates with a proprietary software suite for reviewing & reporting the whole breast ultrasound scan. Our primary device is the BreastMapper, and potentially doubles the discovery of small, treatable breast cancers often missed in dense-breasted women.

This is an important cause, as nearly half of all women over the age of 40 have dense breasts, and study after study shows that ultrasound is an important methodology for dense breast detection. Over half the US population is now covered with laws that require dense breast notification, outlining the reality of millions of women currently underserved by mammography each year.

TRACTUS has been awarded two FDA 510 (k) approvals for both it's hardware ultrasound whole breast ultrasound accessory product and its software reviewing package. Furthermore, whole breast ultrasound is covered by Medicare and many private insurers.


Our Mission

At TRACTUS, we are dedicated to superior patient healthcare, by creating innovative & efficient whole breast ultrasound solutions that empower healthcare providers to best serve their communities. By investing in modern research and development practices, TRACTUS is inspired to facilitate the widespread access to full spectrum whole breast ultrasound that ensures the comprehensive detection that all patients deserve.
