Headquartered in the UK, Philips has just released its MammoDiagnost VU standalone mammography workstation to the United States market. Its product, the company says, enables multi-vendor and multimodality image management and integration, and was designed to help simplify mammography screening workflow.

Philips says MammoDiagnost VU, which was previously available in Europe and part of Philips’ Women’s Healthcare innovative solutions, touts that the product has special features for screening and diagnostic review that go beyond a typical PACS workstation to streamline workflow and allow clinicians to focus on interpretation.

According to the company, the product provides automatic breast tissue alignment for images derived from computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) from any vendor, and switching between examinations with the product takes less than a second.

Other features, it says, include an overview of relevant patient history through a graphical patient history timeline and the display of CR and DR on the same screen.

MammoDiagnost VU can be used as standalone workstation and is compatible with Philips imaging and PACS systems. The multimodality workstation can also function as a front-end workstation by integrating images from any vendor’s modality or PACS system, the company claims.
