Philips receives FDA clearance to market MicroDose SI mammography system
Date:2/28/2013

g Philips MicroDose systems, MicroDose SI uses unique digital photon-counting technology, which represents a paradigm shift in mammography by enabling clinicians to conduct exams using low radiation dose without compromising image quality. Philips has further advanced this unique technology with Single-Shot Spectral Imaging, which is built upon the fact that breast density is subject to different tissue types and materials that absorb X-rays at various energies. The technology powering the MicroDose SI uses this fundamental behavior of X-rays, allowing clinicians to see more than just a shadow in mammogram images by separating high and low energy X-ray within one single exposure.

"The Philips MicroDose SI technology shows great potential," says Etta Pisano , MD, Dean of the College of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). "I look forward to getting the unit installed at MUSC."

Key advantages of MicroDose SI include:

  • High image quality at low X-ray dose (18 to 50 percent lower radiation dose than other digital mammography systems2,3,4,5, with an average dose reduction of 40 percent**)
  • Short exam time - less than 5 minutes including image acquisition
  • Patient comfort with anatomically curved and warmed breast support
  • Ready for future Single-Shot Spectral Imaging applications*

*Not available in North America

** The actual result of the average dose reduction will vary based on variations in digital mammography systems
