This solution was purchased to provide the breast radiologists a comprehensive means to support the full patient pathway from screening to diagnostic exams, with the end goal of improving cancer detection and care.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital is an academic medical center located in Chicago. The hospital offers screening mammography and a full range of diagnostic breast imaging services, including 2-D and 3-D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), breast biopsies and needle localizations.
