Trillium Radiology Associates, which operates private diagnostic imaging facilities in Toronto and Mississauga, has invested in four digital mammography systems from the IT and medical technology company, Sectra.
The system was sold by Xtron Imaging, Sectra‘s new distribution partner for Canada.
Using Sectra’s mammography system, Sectra MicroDose Mammography, four of Trillium Imaging Associates’ clinics will be able to offer women mammography examinations with the lowest possible radiation dose.
Sectra’s mammography operations president Jesper Soderqvist said this is a strategic order for them as it is the first in North America.
"It will serve as an important reference for all of North America as well as being a first step into the highly quality-oriented Canadian healthcare market, in which women are aware of their rights and well-being," Soderqvist said.
Sectra MicroDose Mammography, with its superior image quality, generates by far the lowest dose of radiation of all of the systems offered in the market.
