Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., based in Stamford, Conn., has announced that nine healthcare systems across the United States have selected Fujifilm’s ASPIRE Cristalle mammography system with 3D imaging or digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) option to improve their diagnostic imaging capabilities and women’s health patient outcomes.

“Every day, women turn to mammography centers to know for sure whether they are healthy, at risk, or in immediate danger,” says Rob Fabrizio, director of strategic marketing for digital radiography and women’s health at Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “And every day, more radiologists turn to Fujifilm for innovative imaging and technology they can trust.”

The  ASPIRE Cristalle with DBT combines state-of-the-art, Hexagonal Close Pattern (HCP) capture technology and intelligent image processing, optimizing dose and contrast based on individual breast composition. The result is low dose and fast acquisition of exceptional images for all breast types. In addition, patients can experience a noticeable improvement in comfort during procedures with Fujifilm’s patented, flexible comfort paddle design, which provides gentle and even compression that is designed to adapt to patient curves.
