FDA Clears Xpress CR Mammography for Sale in U.S.

January 13, 2012 — Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the Xpress CR Digital Mammography upgrade for sale.

The clearance specifically applies to the company’s CP1M 18 x 24 and 24 x 30 cassettes and the use of the CS-3 control station with the Regius 190 and 210 readers.

By intelligently recognizing cassette types, the Xpress computed radiography (CR) system delivers digital imaging solutions for both general radiography and mammography application with one easy-to-use, cost-effective solution. The Xpress CR Digital Mammography upgrade provides consistent and reliable high-quality images with the most advanced phosphor receptor available, cesium bromide (CsBr), which delivers a high level of detective quantum efficiency (DQE).

At the heart of this mammography upgrade solution is Konica Minolta’s exclusive ultra high resolution 43.75 um pixel size. This resolution combined with advanced mammography image processing algorithms and specially designed CR Mammography cassettes and plates deliver consistent image quality. Technologists can focus their efforts on patient care due to the simple Xpress CR imaging software and equipment environment.

The CS-3 Control station offers a robust imaging platform which includes specialized imaging tools for CR, digital radiography (DR) and also mammography imaging applications. Specialized mammography algorithms include advanced skin line detection and chest wall masking. These tools combined with the high resolution of the Regius CR reader allow high quality diagnostic mammography images to be acquired, processed, and then transmitted for reading on a diagnostic workstation.
