May 20, 2015 — Viztek debuted its new Exa Mammo Viewer at the upcoming Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2015 meeting. An extension of the Viztek Exa platform, which debuted at SIIM in 2014, the Exa Mammo Viewer leverages advanced technologies to bring the benefits of single workstation viewing and remote access for any 2-D or 3-D mammography study to the specialty of breast imaging.

Using two technologies inherent in the Viztek Exa platform — true zero footprint (ZFP) viewing and server side rendering (SSR) — Viztek is delivering a mammography viewer with two unique advantages. The Viztek Exa Mammo Viewer displays full diagnostic-quality images from any modality, including digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), and enables radiologists to read, diagnose and compare breast images from any location within the department or offsite.

In addition to showcasing the new Exa Mammo Viewer, Viztek will also participate in the panel discussion, “Digital Breast Tomosynthesis: Ready for PACS Prime Time?” The session will address the challenges of DBT viewing at a time when there is growing acceptance and adoption of the modality. The panelists will discuss infrastructure, integration, and standardization challenges posed by DBT, along with current solutions.
