ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--

mammography exams including DBT.

One of the key advantages of Carestream's Vue Mammography PACS is its
ability to support a single, fully featured desktop that enables
streamlined reading of all breast imaging procedures as well as
delivering advanced 3D processing tools.
"Having a single workstation that supports productive reading of all
breast imaging modalities is essential to the efficient operation of
this new imaging center," said Dr. Harmindar Gill, a radiologist who
owns the mammography center. "Carestream also offers innovative tools
that can help me detect and measure anatomical changes between current
and previous breast MRI exams as well as other volumetric procedures.
And when comparing workflow for 3D mammography exams, Carestream's
capabilities were clearly superior to others I evaluated."
The DBT module can display exams side-by-side with other types of
mammography procedures, and allows viewing of DBT exams in cine mode or
by scrolling through images. Comparison tools enable radiologists to use
personalized hanging protocols for DBT exams along with other procedures.
"Carestream's DBT module delivers an impressive toolset that
automatically positions, scales and sizs mammography images so I can
easily compare changes. It also provides the location of a currently
displayed DBT slice or plane within the breast with cross-reference
lines that quickly triangulate an area of interest on all opposing
mammography views," she explains.
Dr. Gill also purchased a CARESTREAM
Vue RIS patient scheduling module, which Carestream integrated into
PenRad's mammography information system.
The Web-based CARESTREAM
Vue Mammo Workstation can be implemented as a standalone workstation
or integrated as part of a CARESTREAM Vue Mammography PACS to deliver
convenient access and synchronization of patient information, procedures
and status for a single-site or a multi-site healthcare system. Vue
Mammography PACS supports viewing of all breast and radiology imaging
studies from a single workstation platform, which can both enhance
productivity and reduce costs.
