Fischer Imaging’s roots go back to 1910, when H.G. Fischer, the oldest manufacturer of X-ray imaging devices in the United States, began its operation in Chicago, IL. Since then, the reputation and name of the company have evolved and gained worldwide recognition in leveraging technology that has brought to market such innovations as the Traumex (VersaRad), Bi Plane Electrophysiology imaging systems, the SenoScan FFDM systems and the Mammotest stereotactic breast biopsy system.
The MammoCATTM-2D incorporates breakthrough technology with slot scanning which yields a resolution of 25-micron pixels and a unique capability for screening, diagnosis, and stereotactic biopsies.
The MammoCATTM-2D essentially eliminates the effect of scattered radiation, without requiring the use of tthe scatter removal grid used in conventional systems. Using a grid necessitates higher X-ray doses on tissue in order to achieve acceptable images.
With a digital detector and high heat capacity X-ray tube specifically designed for low-dose and superior image quality in all procedures, the MammoCATTM-2D is engineered for applications which may be developed in the future.
Revolutionary breast CT scanner system to improve the accuracy of breast cancer screening.
- True 3D imaging
- Radiation doses equivalent to current digital mammography
- Elimination of breast compression during screening
MammoCAT™-3D system will contribute to lower overall imaging costs by improving the sensitivity and specificity of current 2D systems while enabling multiple procedures to be performed with only one MammoCAT™-3D system. Screening, diagnosis, staging and biopsy can be performed on this all-in-one system.
