New CR Mammo System Gains Green Light

Fuji Computed Radiography for Mammography (FCRm) has received clearance from the FDA to be sold in the U.S. The solution offers a combination of image quality, versatility and practicality, and according to the company, is expected to see rapid adoption in the U.S.
FCRm provides 18-by-24 cm and 24-by-30 cm fields-of-view, 50-micron pixel sampling, and Fuji’s patented dual-side reading technology.
For a site that performs both general radiography and mammography exams, the FCR reader provides multipurpose capability and subsequent cost savings.
The system also does not require replacing the existing mammography acquisition unit. This 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.
