Poor image quality and technical recalls are costly in time, resources, and patient satisfaction.
With VolparaLive! technologists can improve results with every scan. VolparaLive! analyzes patient positioning and breast compression pressure to offer a real-time, objective quality score for every scan and view.
If a new scan is required, it can be done immediately, using the recommendations provided—the equivalent of an on-site coach right in the room with the technologist.
The compression pressure
assessment performed by VolparaLive! provides recommended compression force that would deliver
the target amount of pressure.
Mammographic positioning is evaluated by the vPGMI Standard Image Evaluation System for Mammography, categorizing each image as one of the following:
