Siemens to market Carestream Health's mammography digitizer
Siemens Healthcare has added a mammography digitizing system from Carestream Healthcare to its Accessory Solutions product portfolio.

The digitizer is offered through Siemens to U.S. healthcare providers.

Carestream Health's digitizer enables mammography facilities to transition to digital imaging by converting prior film-based diagnostic and screening mammograms into a digital imaging format so they can be viewed in conjunction with digital mammography exams on a diagnostic workstation, Siemens said.

The system also provides automatic identification and orientation of images, as well as automatic retrieval of patient data from radiology information systems.
