New CR-based FFDM First of Its Kind in United States

November 29, 2009 — A second-generation CR-based Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) marks the evolution of the only FDA-approved CR-based mammography solution available in the United States, according to the company.

The new system, called Aspire ClearView, delivers the same exceptional image quality as before with enhanced features and an upgraded technologist workstation.

The system’s enhancements include a sleeker design, lighter weight and a wider viewing angle on the LCD offering additional flexibility for room placement. ClearView will continue to be offered in a single slot and four-slot design. ClearView remains the only approved FFDM that can perform general x-ray imaging.

The latest evolution of the Aspire ClearView workstation, the AWS-c, will be the first color workstation available for technologists. This new workstation offers technologists an improved graphic user interface (GUI) with a full color, high brightness, 2 mega pixel LCD monitor in portrait format for quick recognition of important patient and exposure information.

A user-friendly technologist GUI will be available with both the AWS-c and the AWS-d, the workstation that will be paired with Fujifilm’s new Aspire HD2, DR-based FFDM system. This will provide consistency across product lines for a streamlined workflow and greater efficiency for the user of either of Fujifilm’s FFDM offerings. Also available for the first time is an optional high resolution, 3 mega pixel or 5 mega pixel, greyscale companion monitor for quick confirmation of the acquired image.

The new Aspire ClearView readers are expected to be available in the first half of 2010. The AWS-c will be commercially available upon receipt of pending FDA approval.
