At this year's RSNA show, R2 plans to showcase its ImageChecker DMax CAD system, a high-throughput unit for high-volume mammography centers that accepts film and digital images from all major FFDM products and works with reporting systems from Mammography Reporting System, MagView Information Systems, and PenRad Technologies.

2005 11 04 16 51 35 706ImageChecker DMax also supports the company's DigitalNow software package, launched last year, that helps mammography centers transition to digital mammography. The software is compatible with all DICOM workstations and electronic patient data system integration. It identifies and orients mammography images in the four standard screening views and archives digitized images to a PACS or mini-PACS system for future use, reducing onsite film storage dependence and file room workload.

In August, R2 and Linköping, Sweden-based mammography workstation developer Sectra expanded the collaboration they forged in 2004, which integrated R2's CAD technology with the vendor's digital mammography unit. R2 will now sell and support Sectra's Breast Imaging Workstation and Breast PACS, a multimodality, multivendor mammography workstation, to clients in the U.S. and Canada. Sectra's products allow R2's ImageChecker D digital mammography CAD to be used with images from Fischer Imaging, GE Healthcare, Hologic, and Siemens Medical Solutions.

R2 has also updated its CAD algorithm across the ImageChecker product line. Version 8.0 improves false marker rates at any given sensitivity, according to the Sunnyvale, CA-based company.
