EIZO's 8 megapixel monitor used for the latest in breast cancer examinations
The latest in breast cancer examinations, 3D breast tomosynthesis, is a procedure being carried out by Utsunomiya Central Clinic, where three EIZO RadiForce RX840-MG monitors are being used. Dr. Sato, Radiologist on Utsunomiya Central Clinic's administration board, assesses the usability of the monitors for breast cancer examination.
Reasons for choosing EIZO
Requiring the appropriate monitor for breast cancer patients
"Using only high-resolution monochrome mammography images, breast cancer could only be detected when there was unusually large growth in cancerous structures. For early detection, tomosynthesis, MRI, and PEM image examinations are extremely important. Since not only monochrome images are used in the workflow, but also Parametric Mapping, which analyzes sonogram and MRI images, and PET/CT color images are read at same time. Because of this, it has become essential to have a monitor capable of displaying diverse images on one screen at any time. This is why we selected EIZO's super high-resolution color monitor, the RadiForce RX840-MG."
Results of installation
With a monitor supporting multi-modality, we can establish a new environment for reading images
"Tomosynthesis is painless and allows a more detailed screening. I think it will become a standard procedure for cancer examinations. The RadiForce RX840-MG is a monitor that can display various modality images including tomosynthesis. With it we have transformed out method of examination and established a new kind of environment for reading images. It has become possible to interpret images extremely efficiently by including the monitor in our workflow, allowing us to make a diagnosis by viewing various modality images on one widescreen monitor.
