June 12, 2009 - As European healthcare facilities are turning to vendor-neutral, multimodality breast imaging workstations to streamline reading of digital breast exams, the need for an efficient workflow is driving strong sales for Carestream Health's multimodality workstation, according to Carestream Health's director of Worldwide Marketing, Mammography Solutions, Stephen W. Archer.
The KODAK CARESTREAM Mammography Workstation enables diagnostic review of all breast imaging exams (FFDM, ultrasound, MR, CR and others) as well as all general radiology exams.
“Features such as CAD integration, multimodality functionality and rapid retrieval were very important to us when selecting our breast imaging workstation platform,” said Radiologist Dr. Hubert Kubin at the Institute of Radiology in Salzberg, Austria.
Carestream Health’s workstation offers many features designed for time-saving, including user-customizable hanging protocols and an eight-key programmable mouse.
More than 100 healthcare providers worldwide have ordered the KODAK CARESTREAM Mammography Workstation, including a number of orders from northern Europe, namely Uppsala County, north of Stockholm, Sweden; Ringsted Sygehus in the Sjaelland Region of Denmark; the Icelandic Cancer Society; Mammography Screening Centre in Bielefeld, Germany; the Institute for Radiology in Hollerbrunn, Austria and Clinic Dr Hancken in Stade, Germany.
In addition to its multimodality workstation, Carestream Health’s portfolio of digital mammography products includes:
· Mammography-specific modules that supply specialised patient scheduling and communications, as well as reporting capabilities, for its RIS/PACS platform
· Digital capture of mammography images on its KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR systems in Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia and other regions of the world where approved for use
