Selenia Dimensions tomosynthesis technology has changed the paradigm of mammography. Now Hologic has advanced mammography even further with the ability to reconstruct 2D images from breast tomosynthesis data without the need for 2D exposures.
2D images generated from C-View software may be used in place of traditional 2D images as a part of the breast tomosynthesis exam. The 2D images created from C-View software are reviewed together with the tomosynthesis slices to make a clinical decision or diagnosis.
While the dose of a combined breast tomosynthesis and digital mammography exam is under the MQSA and EUREF limits and deemed safe, C-View software makes lower dose 3D mammography exams possible. And together, the combined tomosynthesis and C-View exam offers superior clinical performance for all breast types compared with 2D alone.1
Improved patient care
• Lower patient radiation dose,2 making the 3D mammography service’s dose comparable to a 2D only exam1
• Shorter scan time results in less compression time and improved patient comfort2
• Faster, 4 second scan time reduces the risk of patient motion2
• Increased diagnostic accuracy and reduced false-positive recall rates compared to 2D alone1
