Kubtec Granted Additional Patent for Breast Specimen Imaging Using 3-D Tomosynthesis

Mozart intraoperative specimen imaging system gives breast surgeons superior view of surgical margins

Kubtec Granted Additional Patent for Breast Specimen Imaging Using 3-D Tomosynthesis

May 30, 2017 — Kubtec announced recently that the U.S. Patent Office has granted the company an additional patent for its technology used for breast specimen imaging using 3-D tomosynthesis.

The patent, Specimen Radiography with Tomosynthesis in a Cabinet (Patent Number 9,642,581 B2) was issued on May 9, 2017 and refers to technology currently embodied in the Kubtec Mozart System. The company calls it the only intraoperative specimen imaging system to use 3-D tomosynthesis to give breast surgeons a superior view of their surgical margins. A recent study has demonstrated that the use of this technology enables significant reductions in surgical re-excision rates when compared to the more traditional 2-D planar imaging.
