Siemens' MAMMOMAT Improves X-Ray Technology, Reduces Dose

 

February 21, 2008

Siemens Healthcare MAMMOMAT Novation S was created to help detect, diagnose and treat breast cancer earlier, faster and with greater precision, and designed as a cost-effective solution for facilities that are making the transition to digital breast imaging but do not have the need for the advanced functionality of state-of-the-art systems.

The MAMMOMAT Novation S utilizes the latest full-field amorphous Selenium (aSe) detectors and features Tungsten/Rhodium (W/Rh) X-ray technology, which reduces dose. This approach reportedly enables shorter exams, streamlined workflow and improved patient outcomes. With the movement toward a multimodality approach to breast care, imaging technologies such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are playing an increasing role in all stages of breast care.
