Siemens is presenting a new analog mammography system at the upcoming annual conference of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, USA. Mammomat Select is designed to deliver high quality regardless of budget restraints in hospitals with high throughput as well as smaller clinics.
The new analog mammography system Mammomat Select is designed to deliver high quality regardless of budget restraints in hospitals with high throughput as well as smaller clinics. Unusual for systems in the lower price segment, Mammomat Select is equipped with a touchscreen that guides clinical personnel through the screening process thanks to simple and intuitive operation.
Unusual for systems in the lower price segment, Mammomat Select is equipped with a touchscreen that guides clinical personnel through the screening process thanks to simple and intuitive operation. The system also supports isocentric movement. The height of the detector does not need to be reset between each imaging phase, which reduces the time needed for patient screening.
To optimally support clinical personnel in setting the dose, Mammomat Select is equipped with the OpDose application. This functionality enables that the radiation dose can be individually set for each patient – without compromising excellent image quality. The appropriate parameters can be selected in accordance with the patient's breast size and density.
"Mammomat Select represents a completely new system development in the analog mammography segment," says André Hartung, CEO of the Business Unit X-Ray Products (XP) at Siemens Healthcare. "We want to provide physicians and patients with the benefits of high-quality and low-cost mammography examination – at the lowest dose possible."
Mammomat Select can be connected to a computed radiography (CR) system via an additional interface to enable an upgrade to digital mammography with storage phosphor plates.Follow us on Twitter: www.twitter.com/siemens_press

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
