May 12, 2008 – Siemens will highlight its line of full field digital mammography and breast imaging, including the new MAMMOMAT Inspiration, the ACUSON S2000 ultrasound system and the MammoReport workstation, at Symposium Mammographicum 2008, in Lille, France.
The MAMMOMAT Inspiration features new compression technologies, a paddle design and mood lighting for patient comfort. An X-ray tube with isocentric rotation is reportedly user friendly and adjusts according to each patient. With a new AEC algorithm, dose is calculated according to the individual patient's breast size and tissue type to ensure the lowest possible dose, according to the company. Fully configurable to future advances in digital mammography including stereotactic biopsy and 3D imaging using tomosynthesis, the system will only require a simple upgrade to offer screening, diagnosis and tomosynthesis on a single digital platform.
The ACUSON S2000 includes paradigm-shifting strain imaging and quantification capabilities, Virtual Touch tissue imaging and Virtual Touch tissue quantification, uses acoustic energy to displace tissue for a qualitative and quantitative assessment of deep tissue stiffness.
