Cyprus Hospital Aims to Lower Dose with MicroDose Mammography

March 5, 2009 - The Aevresis Diagnostic Center in Nicosia, Cyprus, has chosen to digitize their mammography operations with the Sectra MicroDose Mammography from Sectra as it converts to digital and selects a mammography system with lower dose levels.

The system was sold by Proton S.A, Sectra’s new distribution partner for Greece and Cyprus.

The Aevresis Diagnostic Center will be able to offer women mammography examinations with the lowest possible radiation dose as the complete digital solution from Sectra is said to be optimized for screening with less than 50 percent of the dose level of other manufacturers systems – and without any compromise on image quality.

“This will be the first low-dose mammography solution in Cyprus. Through digitization, we take advantage of increased throughput capacity and low dose, making our mammography screening operation efficient and at the same time safe for women,” said Artemisia Fantousi, M.D., radiologist at Aevresis Diagnostic Center.
