Tracking mammography outcome data has changed dramatically over the last 30 years. We used to simply ask… benign or malignant, how small and what type? This level of generality in mammography screening is long gone. In its wake, we have dozens, even hundreds, of data points

Last month Carestream Health received approval from the FDA for our CR Mammography Feature. As one of the first digital mammography systems to gain FDA approval since 2006, we’re very excited about the news! Because CR-based mammography solutions provide excellent image quality at an affordable price,

Today we’re dealing with a confusing topic with significant clinical, technical and legal ramifications. Specific retention requirements—like screening conventions themselves—vary widely by country as well as locally at the province/state level.
