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

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
