  • DR CONTINUES TO PROVE ITS WORTH AS MARKET MATURES :: Medray, Dublin, Ireland
    N I Market Image Gently DR CONTINUES TO PROVE ITS WORTH AS MARKET MATURES Date written 22 01 2015 Carestream have shown before how much faster digital radiography DR can be compared to computed radiography CR when it comes to capturing and displaying images but now that efficiency has translated into the radiology IT world on PACS systems A recent study conducted in Hong Kong and published in the Journal of Diagnostic Imaging showed that radiologists could obtain mobile X ray images in their PACS network 70 sooner using a wireless portable DR system rather than a mobile X ray system using CR plates The difference in timing with DR and CR were drastic it took 6 8 minutes for the PACS to receive the image after it was acquired using DR and 23 minutes to acquire an image taken via CR Taking this information and adding it to the efficiency displayed when capturing images and DR continues to prove its worth In the Hong Kong study the researchers used the CARESTREAM DRX Revolution Mobile X ray System and experienced the benefits of being able to process load and send captured images across the facility s wireless local area network WLAN Images maintain high image quality when transferred across wireless networks all while productivity is increased Studies such as this prove that DR can be more efficient than CR while it is becoming easier to make the switch The maturity of the DR market is still growing and as this continues expect more to switch from CR to DR An article for Radiology Today published in 2014 stated Expect to see continued growth in DR Both the systems and software are not only becoming more versatile but prices are coming down Meanwhile people are waking up to the benefits of its productivity improved image quality and dose reduction Those elements drive the trend The radiology field has known about the benefits of DR and as adoption continues to grow each year research such as what was published in the Hong Kong study provides further evidence to facilities about making the switch The fact remains that many facilities cannot make the conversion from CR to DR immediately so it often happens piece by piece For example Carestream offers the ability to combine the DRX Ascend and Vita Flex CR System to replace a film based X ray room with digital imaging Then when the time comes to go to DR the Vita Flex CR can be replaced with an Ascend DR upgrade to create a fully integrated digital X ray room In the end facilities must be able to weigh the benefits of DR technology against whether it is financially feasible DR is continuing to be adopted by health providers around the world and this growth is expected to continue as the technology advances and prices decrease as the DR market matures Home Digital Radiology Radiology Supplies Veterinary Dental Uniforms NDT Dosimetry Consumables Clearance Lines Support Medray Imaging Systems Unit B5

  • Time Magazine Highlights Digital Breast Tomosynthesis as One of the Leading Health Advances in 2014 :: Medray, Dublin, Ireland
    written 20 01 2015 User of Carestream s DBT Technology Advocates DBT for Reading of All Screening Mammograms Time Magazine cast a spotlight on the dramatic impact of digital breast tomosynthesis in detecting cancers particularly in women with dense breasts in its article entitled 11 Remarkable Health Advances from 2014 A separate Time article reports that women with dense breasts carry a greater risk for cancer and also have tumors that are more difficult to detect That article also presents the results of a scientific study presented at the 2014 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America RSNA in December that involved more than 25 500 women between ages 50 and 69 The study found that combining DBT with full field digital mammography images detected many more cancers than FFDM alone 211 cancers compared to only 163 When it came to dense breasts the combined use of DBT and FFDM were able to identify 80 of the cancers versus 59 when FFDM was used alone There have been multiple scientific studies documenting the value of DBT technology in enhancing detection rates for breast cancer We believe that the radiology and mammography communities recognize the value it offers for both screening and diagnostic mammograms said Ron Muscosky Carestream s Worldwide Product Line Manager for Healthcare Information Solutions Carestream offers an advanced digital breast tomosynthesis DBT module that is accessible from itsCARESTREAM Vue Mammo Workstation and Vue PACS Dr Harmindar Gill Medical Director of Premier Women s Radiology Bonita Springs Fla uses Carestream s DBT technology on a Vue Mammo Workstation and is an avid proponent of DBT because she believes it can assist in the effort to further reduce deaths from breast cancer DBT produces three dimensional images that offer significantly enhanced visualization of breast tissue As a result of my personal experience using DBT and the scientific studies now available I advocate use of DBT for all screening mammograms especially for patients with dense breasts patients with BRCA gene mutation and those who have been previously diagnosed with breast cancer she said Carestream s DBT module adds advanced workflow capabilities and specialized tools that can optimize the reading of digital breast tomosynthesis exams at the same time as other procedures The company s new slabbing tool combines slices of a DBT series while allowing the user to choose different rendition modes and slab thicknesses In scientific studies radiologists have reported that this capability can help visualize calcifications and decrease reading time The generation of 2D synthetic views is an alternate approach to acquiring conventional 2D mammography views which can help reduce the radiation dosage a patient is exposed to while allowing full advantage of the benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis Healthcare providers worldwide use Carestream s Vue PACS and mammography reading tools for reading of routine screening mammograms as well as diagnostic mammography exams Carestream s Vue Mammo workstation allows reading of traditional mammograms breast ultrasound breast MRI DBT or general radiography exams from a single desktop Home
