Kodak's mammo film system awarded
Eastman Kodak's Health Imaging Group's MIN-R EV Screen-Film system has won a 2004 "R&D 100" award that recognizes the 100 most technologically significant products introduced over the past year. The mammography screen film system provides enhanced visualization of subtle abnormalities in breast tissue to assist radiologists in detecting breast cancer.

According to Kodak, MIN-R EV film incorporates technologies such as a new asymmetric emulsion that provides high contrast and wide exposure latitude as well as a new grain structure and improved intensifying screens to deliver increased image sharpness.
