SenoClaire, which was approved by the FDA in 2014, uses a low-dose short X-ray sweep around the positioned breast with nine exposures acquired with a “step-and-shoot” method, removing the potential motion from the tube helping to reduce blur and increase image sharpness.
“We are pleased to be provide women with the latest precise screening tool available to help detect breast cancer,” Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer, said. “When cancer is identified and treated earlier, we know women have a better rate of survival.”
A key challenge when performing screening mammography is keeping the radiation levels as low as possible. With GE’s SenoClaire, there is no increase in dose from a 2D standard mammogram to a 3D view, which means there is no increased radiation to patients during a SenoClaire breast exam.
In addition to offering more clarity, confidence and low dose, SenoClaire offers a comprehensive solution by helping to improve overall workflow. SenoClaire is compatible with CentricityTM PACS with Universal Viewer and supports the DICOM standard that can be read by capable PACS vendors. When SenoClaire is combined with GE Healthcare’s Centricity PACS and Centricity Clinical Archive solution², clinicians have access to the patient’s longitudinal record, providing data that helps to enable better patient care.
