Mobile Digital Mammography takes to the road

A mobile roadshow showcasing Siemens’ future-proof Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) system is in first gear for a summer and autumn tour of fifteen UK hospitals. The MAMMOMAT Inspiration™ will be on the road from June to October 2009.

Without needing to leave Trust sites, mammographers and radiologists will be encouraged to view the system and receive details on the stereotactic biopsy and tomosynthesis aspects that make it a future-proof investment.

The complete workflow solution from worklist download, image acquisition and data transfer to PACS will also be demonstrated.

“With the capability to examine 15 patients an hour, the workflow efficiencies that the Inspiration offers are highly beneficial in a screening environment that demands speed, plus it doesn’t compromise on the comfort of patients. New compression technologies, paddle design and the MoodLight feature that emits calming colours to ease anxiety, combine with data transfer and archive functionality to support next generation breast care,” states Lynn Blackburn, Product Manager at Siemens Healthcare.

The syngo® MammoReport workstation offers high-volume processing power, high image quality, full spatial resolution, RIS integration and Computer Aided Detection (CAD) support.
