March 6, 2007 - Array Corporation USA and Hologic, Inc. have recently entered into a supply agreement in which Array will provide a custom-built digitizer, developed for Hologicï¿½s R2 DMax line of ImageChecker CAD and DigitalNow systems, that focuses on image processing, display and interpretation of CAD marks through medical picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) using the digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) standard.
Array, Hologic Announce Partnership
Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
