May 1, 2014 — Carestream will be a panel participant in a session on “Problems and Solutions in Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT)” to be held during the 2014 meeting of SIIM (Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine). The discussion will be moderated by Matthew B. Morgan, M.D., University of Utah Health Sciences Center. It will take place on Thursday, May 15, from noon - 1 p.m. in the Innovation Theater of Exhibit Hall B at the Long Beach Convention Center. 
 
Ron Muscosky, Carestream’s worldwide product line manager for healthcare information solutions, will discuss the challenges and solutions related to implementing digital breast tomosynthesis with workstations, PACS and vendor-neutral archives (VNA). 
 
Carestream offers an advanced DBT module that is accessible from its Vue Mammo Workstation and Vue PACS. This advanced DBT module includes specialized tools for comparing 2-D and 3-D datasets, along with the display of DICOM-compliant 2D synthetic views. The synthetic views, which are calculated from the 3-D dataset, can help eliminate additional imaging exams, thereby reducing patient dose while offering the enhanced visualization of digital breast tomosynthesis technology.  
 
Carestream’s Vue Mammo Workstation and Vue PACS enable radiologists to read traditional mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, digital breast tomosynthesis or general radiography exams from a single desktop, eliminating the need to view procedures from disparate systems. 
 
Objectives of the session include:
A discussion of additional challenges posed by DBT images (as compared to conventional full field digital mammography) for acquisition, storage, distribution, compression, display, CAD and long-term archiving;
Review of the breast tomosynthesis DICOM standard; and
Identifying requirements needed to support DBT, such as PACS, vendor-neutral archiving, cloud storage, and local/remote/CD viewers.
