Sectra to Display Photon-Counting FFDM System

February 9, 2009 - At ECR 2009, held in Vienna, March 6-10, Sectra will continue to push for the new generation of its photon-counting full-field digital mammography system, Sectra MicroDose Mammography, as a growing number of providers of medical technology point to photon-counting as the future in medical imaging.

Sectra MicroDose Mammography is currently the only commercially available photon-counting mammography system. Sectra MicroDose Mammography is optimized for high volume screening, maximizing image quality using 50 percent of the radiation dose compared with other FFDM systems.

Sectra MicroDose Mammography features the latest developments within photon-counting technology. 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.

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