Kubtec Announces Expansion of 3-D Tomosynthesis Technology

October 4, 2017 — Kubtec announced at the annual conference of the American Association of Pathology Assistants (AAPA) that they are expanding their proprietary use of 3-D tomosynthesis by bringing it to the XPERT 80 Specimen X-ray System. Kubtec introduced 3-D imaging for clinical specimens with the Mozart System, the first specimen X-ray system to use 3-D tomosynthesis, according to the company. 
 
This technology has now been scaled up to enable healthcare professionals to visualize larger specimens such as full mastectomies and even the longest of bone specimens — all in 3-D.
 
The digital X-ray company plans to have this technology incorporated into the XPERT 80 System by the end of 2017.
