Philips' Mammography Workstation Streamlines Multimodality Imaging

June 24, 2009 - Philips today introduced MammoDiagnost VU, a standalone mammography workstation that enables multivendor and multimodality image management and integration, to the U.S. market.

Previously available in Europe and part of Philips’ women’s healthcare solutions, MammoDiagnost VU has special features for screening and diagnostic review that go beyond a typical PACS workstation to streamline workflow and allow clinicians to focus on interpretation.
Philips MammoDiagnost VU simplifies the clinician's user experience by streamlining labor-intensive steps. MammoDiagnost VU goes beyond the capabilities of a typical workstation by offering automatic breast tissue alignment for images derived from computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) from any vendor. Switching between examinations with MammoDiagnost VU takes less than a second. The system supports the entire imaging process. It enables institutions to customize their workflow while allowing individuals to personalize their own work lists.

In line with new American Cancer Society guidelines recommending a multimodality approach for mammography screening, diagnosis and management, Philips MammoDiagnost VU is designed to manage and integrate data from multiple modalities in a single location and automatically aligns ‘left’ and ‘right’ breast tissue images.
Other features of MammoDiagnost VU include an overview of relevant patient history through a graphical patient history timeline and the display of CR and DR on the same screen. The system also enables automatic background suppression and inversion of images on a single workstation.
MammoDiagnost VU can be used as standalone workstation and is compatible with Philips imaging and PACS systems. The multimodality workstation can also function as a front-end workstation by integrating images from any vendor’s modality or PACS system.
