ContextVision introduces new mammography and interventional radiology systems at ECR 2011


ContextVision has introduced two innovative solutions at the 2011 European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria. The Mammo PlusView addresses current limitations of x-ray image diagnosis for the detection of breast cancer, while the GOPView iRV helps achieve superior, real-time images with the ability for dose reduction during interventional fluoroscopy procedures.

The Mammo PlusView is the only product available on the market to provide a configurable and cost-effective mammography viewing workstation with computer-aided detection functionality. It can be set up as a stand-alone system or integrated with a picture archiving and communications system, analyses images and generates computer-aided detection marks to highlight suspicious areas, such as microcalcification clusters and masses. The C-CAD by ContextVision is easily integrated into various picture archiving and communications systems from other vendors, providing diversified solutions for physicians.


“Mammography images can be difficult to read at times, and radiologists struggle not to overlook breast cancers. The integrated computer-aided detection technology in the Mammo PlusView provides radiologists with a second set of eyes before they make their decision, alerting them to areas that may require more attention and therefore ensuring any abnormalities in breast tissue are evaluated appropriately,” said Anita Tollstadius, chief executive officer of ContextVision.


The GOPView iRV is able to accurately define the movements between the images to quickly find structures and orientation for interventional procedures in real time and without time gaps, resulting in enhanced low-dose images that offer superior clarity and higher contrast, regardless of the detector solution used.
