April 11, 2016 — The Planmed Clarity 3-D digital breast tomosynthesis system and the Planmed Clarity 2-D full field digital mammography system have received the CE mark and are now available for sale in the European Union and other countries where the CE mark applies. The systems have also won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award.

Digital breast tomosynthesis produces a 3-D volume of the breast and resolves the challenge of overlapping tissue structures. This results in enhanced diagnostics, especially for patients with denser breast tissue. Planmed’s patented new tomosynthesis method significantly improves image accuracy and allows even the smallest details to be captured with great precision.

In addition to the Planmed Clarity 3-D digital breast tomosynthesis system, the new product family also includes the Planmed Clarity 2-D digital mammography system, which can be easily upgraded to digital breast tomosynthesis at any time. Both systems allow imaging with a low effective patient dose and feature a durable digital detector for mobile screenings, as well as the new Planmed Clarity Flow touch control with dual touchscreens.

The Planmed Clarity systems provide outstanding image quality and enable a fast and reliable workflow in all situations — from screenings to diagnostic imaging and biopsy procedures.
