Carestream, a US based SJE Group investment, has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration for its Digital Tomosynthesis (DT) functionality; a three-dimensional extension of general radiography.
DT technology uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation. As a result, it can generate data from a series of low dose X-ray images of the same organ, taken at the same X-ray exposure, from different angles.
Doctors and radiologists will be able to perform scans quickly, providing valuable clinical information for further diagnosis while improving the workflow in an X-ray room. This is particularly important in emergency wards and trauma centres.
The SJE Group congratulates Sarah Verna, Worldwide Marketing Manager for Global X-ray Solutions, and the rest of the talented team at Carestream.
