Fujifilm Amulet hits new targets in digital mammography market


FUJIFILM Europe announces new achievements in its women’s health business, confirming itself as one of the most innovative companies in the Medical Equipment market. In the last months, Fujifilm has completed its 1000th European installation of its flagship digital mammography system, the FDR Amulet. At the same time, the company’s latest DR mammography system, the tomosynthesis capable Amulet Innovality, has been awarded by The New Economy magazine as the best Digital Mammography system in 2015.

At the 22nd annual European Congress of Radiology in Vienna from March 2-6, the award-winning AMULET Innovality will be shown equipped with:

  • a biopsy option to be used both with stereotactic and tomosynthesis procedures. This functionality enables an improved application of tomosynthesis in breast interventional procedures, overtaking the limits of stereo targeting when having to deal with lesions which are not visible on 2D images
  • a new and improved version of AMULET Innovality operator console running version 6 software, for use with the aforementioned tomosynthesis biopsy function and capable of advanced processing such as synthetic 2D processing and slice slabbing
  • a new patented shifting paddle, further optimizing the use of AMULET Innovality for small breasts. This new paddle has been designed to maximize ease of patient positioning and operator comfort. This new addition ensures that smaller breasts can be easily imaged using a small field of view, aiding in exposure area optimization and data volume reduction
  • an updated version of the proprietary Fit Sweet Paddle, an adaptive paddle developed to reduce patient pain while maintaining a proper compression of the breast during exposure
  • a new height adjustable operator console. This locally provided solution is designed to offer superior ergonomics and facilitate operator comfort with 4 pre-programmable table heights made available at the press of a button

At the 2016 ECR congress Fujifilm will also be offering educational sessions provided by the Fujifilm Academy of Breast Imaging. Experienced clinical tutors will guide the participants through a series of cases, selected and presented in two different levels of educational workshop. A basic session will provide basic information about breast tomosynthesis acquisition and imaging, highlighting the impact of this new technology when used in first level assessment and in diagnostic mammography. An advanced session will deliver information and clinical evidence of the application of different tomosynthesis acquisition protocols (narrow and wide angles, at different spatial resolutions) in mammography, according to the needs of both screening and diagnostic mammography. Technical information will be provided and comparative clinical cases will be shown in both sessions.

The improvements and new options described above confirm the commitment of Fujifilm to digital mammography product development according to new clinical evidence and medical trends.

The Fujifilm booth is located at the Austria Center Vienna, Expo X3, Booth Nr. 209.
