PacsSCAN Film Provides High Quality Scanning For Film-Based Mammography Priors

January 12, 2009

PACSGEAR, Inc., the leader in document and multimedia connectivity solutions for PACS/EHR, today announced the introduction of PacsSCAN Film™ for Mammography, an application specifically designed for digitizing film-based mammography images. The PacsSCAN Film for Mammography System scans plain film mammograms and allows side-by-side comparison with digital mammography images.

The product measurably improves radiologists’ reading times by employing the DICOM Digital Mammography standard. This standard enables the correct sequencing of scanned images on digital mammography workstations. Scanned images can be enhanced by using the company’s proprietary Dynamic Contrast Algorithm (DCA), which gives scanned film a digital look and feel. The PacsSCAN Film for Mammography software can be configured to display scanned images at the same resolution as their digital counterparts. Throughput is further enhanced with PACSGEAR’s patent-pending batch scanning technology.
