Fujifilm to Begin Clinical Trials of 3D Mammography in the U.S.
Date:11/27/2011

CHICAGO, Nov. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A year after clinical trials began in Japan, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. today announced at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2011 Annual Meeting that clinical trials for their 3D Digital Mammography(1) technology are about to commence in the United States. The medical imaging and informatics company is currently installing 3D mammography systems at renowned medical centers across the country with plans to begin trials as early as December 2011.

"When it comes to the early detection of breast cancer, radiologists will benefit from powerful 3D technology to elevate their diagnostic confidence using an average glandular dose that is equivalent to 2D Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM), increase their workflow, and give their patients improved outcomes," explains David Hotchkiss, Director of Modality Solutions Marketing at Fujifilm. "After thorough evaluation of needs of the patients and clinicians, we believe that, when approved by the FDA, Fujifilm's 3D Digital Mammography has the potential to become the standard of care. We remain committed to improving our breast screening technologies, and we are confident that this will be the screening technology of choice."

Currently commercially available for sale and in use in Europe, Fujifilm's 3D Digital Mammography is an innovative breast screening technology that presents the images to radiologists in an in-depth, three-dimensional view.  Pairs of stereo images of the breast are acquired and then viewed by combining a 3D review workstation and dedicated glasses specifically designed to present 3D breast images.  Because 3D Digital Mammography uses the similar clinical workflow as traditional FFDM, and because it presents the stereo images in a standard mammographic view of the breast (i.e., LCC, RCC, LMLO, or RMLO) that is familiar for radiologists, it has the potential to increase throughput and diagnostic confid
