New MAMMOMAT(R) Novation S Introduces Innovations to Accelerate Workflow

CHICAGO, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Siemens Medical Solutions (http://www.usa.siemens.com/medical) introduces the MAMMOMAT(R) Novation S, a new digital mammography system designed to optimize clinical workflow for screenings, at the 93rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) from Nov. 25 to 30 at McCormick Place (Booth #7713, Hall B).

With the introduction of the MAMMOMAT Novation S, Siemens provides a cost- effective solution for facilities that are making the transition to digital breast imaging but do not have the need for advanced diagnostic functionality. The system is suited to large facilities that operate screening-only satellite centers, as well as those that perform both screening and diagnostic examinations, but for whom investing in only diagnostic systems is cost- prohibitive because of the volume of screening exams performed.

"The MAMMOMAT Novation S provides a digital mammography solution that is designed to address the needs of patients, clinicians and administrators alike," said Anders Steiner, vice president, Special Systems Division, Siemens Medical Solutions. "Now healthcare facilities have the option of a system that fits their clinical and business needs, providing intuitive, streamlined workflow and enabling exceptional throughput to help maximize their investments."

The MAMMOMAT Novation S utilizes the latest full-field amorphous Selenium (aSe) detectors, which convert X-ray energy into an electric charge to help detect small and low-contrast objects, yielding excellent image quality. To achieve optimum dose, the MAMMOMAT Novation S utilizes the same technology as the MAMMOMAT NovationDR - OpComp and OpDose.

The Acquisition Workstation (AWS) comes standard with the MAMMOMAT Novation S Siemens, which may also be used with the syngo(R) MammoReport breast care workplace. Combined with these dedicated workstations and a common user interface that intuitively drives workflow, the MAMMOMAT Novation S provides a comprehensive solution for optimized mammography screening processes. Through DICOM compatibility, patient data are readily stored in existing digital clinical archives of virtually any scale and may be printed as needed.
