Carestream Launches Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Module for its Vue Mammo Workstation

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) Module that displays DBT exams from DICOM-com

Carestream announced the availability of its Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) Module that displays DBT exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices on its CARESTREAM Vue Mammo Workstation. The workstation also displays traditional mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and general radiology exams to help equip radiologists to work efficiently from a single desktop. The new module streamlines 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. Specialized tools can further enhance productive reading: automatic positioning of DBT and mammograms eliminates manual manipulations; automatic “same sizing” of DBT and mammograms aid in comparing changes in anatomy; and concurrent magnifying glasses provided close-up comparison of pathology across multiple views and procedures. DBT exams can be viewed in cine mode or by scrolling. The Vue Mammo Workstation is integrated with a broad range of breast imaging modalities, CAD systems, archives, PACS and information systems.
