August 30, 2010 - A private mammography clinic in Germany launched the first German mobile screening unit. By offering mobile screening, , Gemeinschaftspraxis für Diagnostische Radiologie und Nuklearmedizin can improve its participation rates as women need to spend less time and cost in transit when attending their screening examinations.
Sectra’s mobile solution, Sectra MicroDose mammography system, is in use in Denmark, the U.K., Ireland, Australia and now also in Germany.
With superior image quality, Sectra’s mammography system, Sectra MicroDose mammography, generates by far the lowest dose of radiation of all of the systems offered on the market. Sectra MicroDose mammography is based on patented photon counting technology.
MicroDose Mammography has already been installed at numerous hospitals and clinics in 17 European countries as well as in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. It is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
