Philips MicroDose Next Generation Mammography Solution Gains Traction with First North American Customers, Enabling Excellent Image Quality at a Low Radiation Dose
Date:11/29/2011

options helped administrators make the decision to bring MicroDose to this innovative, cutting-edge center.
  • MicroDose is the first FFDM system at Monument Radiology in Richmond. The system's reduced radiation dose and short scanning time help give women who visit this center the most thorough, convenient experience possible.
  • United Medical Center, a not-for-profit hospital corporation in Washington, DC will use the MicroDose system to allow its patients to get the potential benefits of low radiation exposure.
  • MicroDose is also the first FFDM system for Dr. Lawrence Resnick at the Woman's Breast Center in Santa Monica. The solution's reduced radiation dose offering helps to position Dr. Resnick and his Center as one of the most innovative in the area.
  • "Our hospital is committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients and MicroDose allows us to do just that," said Dr. Raymond Tu, chairman of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at United Medical Center. "The solution is also convenient—patient scanning time is reduced to less than five minutes, allowing us to see more patients each day and decreasing the amount of time patients have to spend at appointments."

    Philips is committed to a comprehensive approach to women's health care, and MicroDose is part of the company's comprehensive portfolio of advanced diagnostic imaging and information management solutions for the entire breast cycle of care including ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography / computed tomography (PET/CT).
