Digital breast tomosynthesis module for mammo workstation
DBT Module for CARESTREAM Vue Mammo Workstation
The Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) Module displays DBT exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices on the CARESTREAM Vue Mammo Workstation. The workstation also displays traditional mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and general radiology exams to help equip radiologists to work efficiently from a single desktop. The new module streamlines workflow by allowing healthcare providers to store, route, display and query/retrieve DBT exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices. Comparison tools enable radiologists to use personalized hanging protocols for DBT exams along with other procedures. Specialized tools can further enhance productive reading: automatic positioning of DBT and mammograms eliminates manual manipulations; automatic 'same sizing' of DBT and mammograms aid in comparing changes in anatomy; and concurrent magnifying glasses provide close-up comparison of pathology across multiple views and procedures. DBT exams can be viewed in cine mode or by scrolling. The Vue Mammo Workstation is integrated with a broad range of breast imaging modalities, CAD systems, archives, PACS and information systems.
