Breast Imaging News
125 years of X-rays: Breast cancer is the main cancer found in women – and early detection is the key to improving breast cancer outcomes and survival rates. Screening mammography has come a long way, both in terms of organization and technology: from modified regular X-ray systems to dedicated mammography and tomosynthesis systems and the support of artificial intelligence.
Breast Cancer: Artificial Intelligence enhances screening and eases workload
In breast cancer screening programs, such as the one running in the Netherlands, a high volume of mammography data is acquired. Radiologists have to evaluate hundreds of images every day with precision and often under time pressure. Artificial intelligence (AI) offers radiologists smart support.
How COVID-19 is also impacting breast imaging
The COVID-19 pandemic is confronting healthcare institutions around the world with unprecedented clinical and operational challenges. The impact of the pandemic is also being felt in breast care.
Enhancing patient comfort in breast imaging
Over the past several years, medical technology companies, especially those involved in mammography, have focused intensively on technological developments to improve diagnostic accuracy.
Transpara vervangt collega-radioloog

In samenwerking met ScreenPoint Medical biedt Siemens Healthineers radiologen slimme ondersteuning met behulp van Artificial Intelligence (AI).
