Siemens/Fuji

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Long-term supply agreement allows Siemens to offer Fuji's computed radiography (CR) systems with its full-field digital mammography (FFDM) technology. "Our strategic decision for a CR-based FFDM solution was driven by our determination that flat detector technology still has to mature for mammography applications," Frank Anton, MD president, special systems division, Siemens Medical Engineering Group stated in a Nov. 28 release. Fuji CR will be offered internationally with FFDM, which is installed as an upgrade to Siemens' Mammomat 3000 and 3000 Nova instruments. GE Medical Systems' Senographe 2000, based on flat detector technology, is the only digital mammography system currently available in the U.S. (1see related story, p. 5)
