Sectra Debuts New MicroDose Mammography System

February 13, 2007 - Sectra will launch at ECR the next generation of its photon-counting full-field digital mammography system, Sectra MicroDose Mammography, which features the latest developments within photon-counting technology, in response to a growing trend toward photon-counting in medical imaging.

In addition to maximizing image quality, increasing throughput and minimizing radiation exposure, the system is now possible to equip with a Stereotactic add-on for clinical examinations. Photon-counting is a technology for better images, lower dose and fundamental advantages in several advanced applications, such as contrast mammography, dual-energy and tomosynthesis.

Sectra will demonstrate a totally integrated mobile solution for mammography screening, including Sectra Screening RIS, Sectra MicroDose Mammography, and Sectra Breast Imaging PACS, all designed to efficiently streamline mammography workflow.
