According to manufacturer ContextVision, the new GOPView Mammo3 is aiming to be a complete mammography image processing product for both screening and diagnostic imaging.

The system provides high transparency of the parenchyma and superior visibility of subtle lesions and micro calcifications independent of breast density, due to the GOPView Mammo3’s high global and local contrast in combination with intelligent noise suppression. According to the manufacturer, this processing of both screening and diagnostic images enables doctors to make fast and accurate diagnoses.

“Women deserve a diagnostic process that provides their medical examiners with the proper image quality to make a better-informed diagnosis,” said Anita Tollstadius, CEO at ContextVision. “In the US alone, more than 40 percent of women have denser breast tissue. It is imperative that mammography equipment is able to address this challenge as increased density often lowers the sensitivity of mammography. In using ContextVision’s software, doctors are better able to discern harmless dense breast tissue from problematic lesions and act accordingly to ensure active response.”

ContextVision will be at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference in North Hall B, booth 7210.
