Xograph adds Planmed digital mammography system to portfolio

11 May 2006

UK and Ireland medical imaging equipment supplier Xograph Imaging Systems is to unveil its latest direct digital imaging solution, Planmed Nuance, at Symposium Mammographicum 2006 (9-11 July) in Bournemouth, UK.

The Planmed Nuance Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) system is the latest addition to Xograph’s range of Digital Radiography solutions for hospitals and diagnostic centres. It provides superior digital image quality and includes diagnostic software for image acquisition, softcopy reporting and digital connectivity.

A high-speed X-ray tube with dedicated magnification track and digital Flex-AEC allow high patient throughput without compromising image quality. Flex-AEC automatically determines the optimal exposure parameter for all tissue types.

In addition to rapid breast screening procedures, the system is also ideal for high-precision diagnostic mammography. The Planmed Nuance ‘DigiGuide’ is optionally available for digital stereotactic and geometric magnification procedures. The system is also compatible with both vertical or optional lateral vacuum-assisted biopsy devices.

The system also features Nuance Acquire, an innovative digital image acquisition workstation that presents high-quality and sharp digital images on the high-resolution grey scale monitor. The images can be transferred to PACS, optionally burned to CD or printed. The optional DICOM worklist provides patient information from other hospital information systems such as HIS, RIS or MIS.
