Carestream Health, Inc installed its two thousandth high-resolution CR system for mammography at the Rechts der Isar Clinic in Munich, Germany. The company’s KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR Mammography Feature enables mammography images to be captured digitally while utilizing a healthcare provider’s existing mammography x-ray unit and workflow processes is intended for use in the same clinical and screening applications as traditional screen-film based mammography systems. The Munich University Rechts der Isar Clinic installed a new multi-plate KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR 975 System with Mammography Feature in November. “We invested in the CR 975 system for mammography because it delivers excellent image quality and fits very well into our workflow," said Prof. Dr. Ernst Rummeny, Director of the Institute for X-ray Diagnosis of Munich University. Carestream Health offers digital capture of mammography exams on its CR systems in Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia and other regions of the world where approved for use. Carestream Health has applied to the US Food and Drug Administration for approval to market its CR system for mammography in the US. This optional mammography feature is available when purchasing a new Elite, Classic or CR 975 System from Carestream Health, or as a retrofit to installed Elite, Classic or CR 850/950/975 systems. Carestream Health’s CR systems with this optional feature can be used for both general radiography and mammography exams. In addition, the optional KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR Mammography Total Quality Tool is available to streamline objective mammography image testing and QC measurements.
