July 8, 2015 - Planmed introduces a new mammography unit, Planmed Clarity 3D, which utilizes advanced digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) technology. DBT enables enhanced diagnostics, especially for patients with denser fibroglandular breast tissue.

DBT resolves the challenge of overlapping tissue structures by producing a 3-D volume of the breast. As a whole, Planmed Clarity 3D enables sharp reconstructions with a higher visibility of microcalcifications and delicate tissue structures through its patented Continuous Sync-and-Shoot method. This new approach to tomosynthesis imaging eliminates motion blur and artifact intrusion, ensuring that small calcifications and blood vessels can be seen with clarity.

Along with DBT, Planmed Clarity 3D has several features which enable a quick screening workflow, as well as easy diagnostic imaging and biopsy procedures. For radiologists, the solution offers exceptional image quality and diagnostic confidence. The ergonomic and easily approachable design of the unit helps to reduce patient anxiety, and dual touch screens adapt to each of the available imaging modes.

The system has a compact footprint and can be installed in small rooms. It runs from a standard wall outlet, which further eases installation and daily use. The design of Planmed Clarity 3D can be tailored to suit a variety of color schemes, providing a personal touch for users.

Deliveries of the system will start in fall 2015 in select markets.
