January 8, 2014 — Carestream demonstrated work-in-progress enhancements to its digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) module on its Vue Mammo Workstation at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013).
The module is scheduled to include the display of DICOM-compliant 2-D synthetic views, which are calculated from the 3-D dataset. The use of synthetic views is considered as an alternate approach to reducing dosage to patients while allowing full advantage of the benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis.
Other additions to Carestream’s DBT module include a DBT image map and improved workflow settings.
“Synthetic 2-D views have the potential to help reduce patient dose and some radiologists believe the image quality is superior to traditional 2-D mammography views, which can help enhance patient care,” said Ron Muscosky, product line manager of healthcare information solutions, Carestream.
Carestream’s new generation of Vue PACS (picture archiving and communication system) is designed to include 64-bit architecture.
“One of the primary benefits of 64-bit architecture is its enhanced ability to handle larger datasets, including DBT and other 3-D exams. So this architecture will greatly improve access speeds and reading convenience for users of 3D imaging studies,” said Muscosky.
The DBT module is also designed with specialized tools to enhance reading. It can enhance workflow by allowing healthcare providers to store, route, display and query/retrieve DBT exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices. Comparison tools enable radiologists to use personalized hanging protocols for DBT exams along with other procedures.
