EUSOBI Mammography & beyond Course

The EUSOBI Mammography & beyond Course 2019 aims to give a thorough overview of different Mammography (MG) based techniques like tomosynthesis, contrast enhanced MG, synthetic MG and CT of the breast. Beside fundamental technical considerations, results of different ongoing clinical trials will be presented and training on different MG based techniques will be provided.

The course will take place in Vienna, Austria, from February 25-26, 2019.

Theoretical lectures will be enhanced by hands-on workshops on systems provided by different vendors.

There will be several Hands-On Sessions:

First hand experience reading Breast CT images – best practices from University Hospital Zurich
given by Andreas Boss, PD Dr. Dr. (USZ, Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology)

Get the course program here

The course has limited access in order to ensure that each participant has the possibilty to work with different MG based techniques.

nu:view Granted CE Certification

Even with high-tech technology and skilled, qualified radiologists, early and reliable diagnosis of breast cancer remains challenging. According to the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, some 69,000 women in Germany are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, with almost 18,000 dying of the disease. Conventional diagnosis methods, while well established, are not always reliable. 3D imaging with high isotropic resolution, on the other hand, offers clear advantages.

Even with high-tech technology and skilled, qualified radiologists, early and reliable diagnosis of breast cancer remains challenging. According to the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, some 69,000 women in Germany are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, with almost 18,000 dying of the disease. Conventional diagnosis methods, while well established, are not always reliable. 3D imaging with high isotropic resolution, on the other hand, offers clear advantages.

nu:view, the world’s first breast CT scanner to use spiral CT technology, is the brainchild of Erlangen-based company AB-CT. With the CE marking for nu:view in place, the new scanner is already in use on patients at the University Hospital Zurich (USZ).

What sets nu:view apart is the very high image resolution coupled with low radiation dose and short scan times, explains AB-CT CEO Benjamin Kalender, referring to the benefits of the new CT scanner. “To obtain the best possible image quality and maximize radiation dose efficiency at the same time, the detector uses state-of-the-art single photon counting technology.” Unlike conventional scintillation, nu:view uses detectors made of cadmium telluride (CdTe), transforming every x-ray photon directly into an electric pulse.

In a single rotation around the female breast, 2,000 projection images are created, with a full scan taking as little as seven to 12 seconds—at very low radiation levels without breast compression, ensuring excellent patient comfort. “For the first time we have a CT scanner that makes it possible to acquire an image of the entire female breast in a single scan in true 3D, imaging both the soft tissue and the calcifications,” the CEO explains.

Prof. Dr. Andreas Boss, senior consultant for breast imaging at the Institute for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at University Hospital Zurich and first user of nu:view, can attest to its merits: “The images are impressive; the image quality is excellent. Compared to mammography, the three dimensional, non-superimposed images make it far easier to detect micro-calcifications. This non-compressive method also means less discomfort for the patient and reduces the number of additional ultrasound images into the bargain.”

National Academy of Engineering Elects 80 Members and 22 Foreign Members

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected Willi Kalender as one of new members for his development of spiral computed tomography methods that enable modern high-speed 3D medical imaging with X-rays.

Press release

Erlangen,

CT pioneers spell out how to reduce patients’ anxiety over dose

Few people have had greater individual impact on the evolution of CT scanners than Dr. Willi Kalender, PhD, the pioneer of spiral systems. As the director of the Institute of Medical Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany, he is currently overseeing projects relating to CT imaging of the heart, micro-CT, and image-based navigated interventions.
