Siemens Tomosynthesis Reading Session: NEW with Insight and EMPIRE Technology


Siemens will again be holding workshops for hands-on experience in Breast Tomosynthesis reading. We will provide in depth tuition on more than 20 clinical cases in these 90 minute sessions. These sessions provide an excellent introduction to tomosynthesis and the reading workstation. In addition new developments in tomosynthesis will be previewed: High Definition Breast Tomosynthesis featuring EMPIRE1 reconstruction technology, and Insight1, providing synthesized visualization of tomosynthesis volumes in 2D and 3D.
