Matakina International recently announced the installation of Volpara objective breast density measurement software at Jacobi Medical Center and North Central Bronx Hospital, which comprise the North Bronx Healthcare Network. The enterprise installation at Jacobi and NCBH provides the ability to offer objective breast density measurements for all 12,000 mammograms performed annually at Jacobi and NCBH on four Hologic Mammography Systems.
Designed to help overcome the limitations of mammography to detect cancer in women with dense breasts, Volpara generates objective, automatic measurement of volumetric breast density values along with a BI-RADS Breast Density Classification for mammograms acquired from any commercially available digital mammography system.
Cleared by the FDA, HealthCanada, the TGA and CE-marked, Volpara is in use at sites across the globe helping radiologists assess breast density more objectively and helping them better consider who might benefit from additional screening. Volpara supports most of the major digital mammography systems, can be displayed on digital mammography and PACS workstations and be integrated into mammography reporting systems.
