FUJIFILM Spotlights CR for Mammography

March 4, 2008 - FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA featured its digital mammography system, Fuji Computed Radiography for Mammography (FCRm) that works to offer a combination of image quality, versatility and practicality, at NCBC 2008.

The system provides 18-by-24-centimeter and 24-by-30-centimeter fields-of-view, 50-micron pixel sampling and Fuji’s patented dual-side reading technology.

According to the company, the system does not require replacing the existing mammography acquisition unit, which can lower conversion costs for facilities. Instead of a complete system overhaul, with FCRm the film cassettes are replaced with FCR cassettes. After the exam, the digitally acquired information is sent to the facility’s PACS for interpretation.

With digital mammography, X-ray images can be displayed on a computer workstation, allowing the radiologist to magnify or optimize a particular area and adjust the contrast of the image. This can reportedly reduce the number of extra images and exposures that are sometimes required during the diagnostic process.
