Koning, a developer of medical imaging systems, has obtained CE mark approval for its Koning Breast CT (KBCT) system.

The KBCT system is a fully-integrated, breast CT scanner which is designed to capture image of the entire breast with high spatial and contrast resolution at a radiation dose similar to or less than diagnostic mammography.

The KBCT system takes away a set of images in ten seconds and produces true 3D images and multi-planar cross-sectional slices.

KBCT also eliminates tissue overlap and superimposition of structures, thus saving lives and reducing ever growing health care costs.

Koning president and founder Ruola Ning said KBCT which is the latest advancement in true 3D breast-imaging technology, focuses on a growing worldwide women’s health issue – the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer.
