New Module for Review of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Exams on Mammography Workstation

Vue Mammo Workstation Displays Breast and General Radiology Exams to Streamline Reading, Enhance Workflow Efficiency

CHICAGO, Nov. 25 — Carestream announced the availability of a new module that displays digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices on its CARESTREAM Vue Mammo Workstation. The workstation also displays traditional mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and general radiology exams to equip radiologists to work efficiently from a single desktop.

The digital breast tomosynthesis module streamlines workflow by allowing healthcare providers to store, route, display and query/retrieve DBT exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices. Comparison tools enable radiologists to use personalized hanging protocols for DBT exams along with other procedures.

Specialized tools further enhance productive reading: automatic positioning of DBT and mammograms eliminates manual manipulations; automatic “same sizing” of DBT and mammograms aid in comparing changes in anatomy; and concurrent magnifying glasses provide close-up comparison of pathology across multiple views and procedures. DBT exams can be viewed in cine mode or by scrolling.

Carestream can securely archive DBT images using its CARESTREAM Vue Archive or CARESTREAM Vue Cloud that delivers pay-as-you-go image storage. 

The Vue Mammo Workstation is integrated with a broad range of breast imaging modalities, CAD systems, archives, PACS and information systems. It is also available with PenRad’s patient tracking and mammography information system for healthcare providers in North America. The Web-based Vue Mammo Workstation can be standalone or integrated as part of a CARESTREAM Vue Mammo PACS to deliver convenient access and synchronization of patient information, procedures and status for a single site or a multi-site healthcare system. CARESTREAM Vue RIS and Vue PACS offer native patient tracking, critical results notification and peer review capabilities that meet the needs of many healthcare providers.

Carestream Health will display its latest medical imaging and healthcare IT solutions at Booth #2636 in the South Building Hall A as part of the tradeshow conducted concurrently with the RSNA meeting. For more information please visit or
