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

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
