Published on July 16, 2013 at 11:03 AM · No Comments

GE Healthcare (NYSE: GE), hailed a new era for breast imaging today as it announced CE marking for SenoClaire, GE's new generation of breast tomosynthesis solution designed with a three-dimensional imaging technology. Powered by ASiRDBT1, SenoClaire technology uses a low-dose short X-ray sweep around the positioned breast with nine exposures acquired with a "step-and-shoot" method, removing the potential motion from images.

"We are thrilled to receive the CE marking for this important product in our Women's Health business. We continue to innovate our portfolio and aim to help clinicians expand care to more women globally in order to help reduce breast cancer. Our goal was to pioneer an upgrade solution for both our digital mammography platforms, Senographe Essential and Senographe Care, providing flexibility for customers to enhance their clinical offering for their clinic and patient workflow," said Prahlad Singh, General Manager, Women's Health, GE Healthcare - Detection & Guidance Solutions (DGS).

More precision, More confidence, Less dose: SenoClaire

With GE's SenoClaire, powered by ASiRDBT a single MLO view provides clinical non-inferiority compared to a 2-view digital mammography exam—at half the dose and with just one compression. Subsequently, this solution has the potential to replace digital mammography exams in screening to help radiologists detect breast cancer.
