FUJIFILM received FDA 510(K) clearance for its Aspire Cristalle digital mammography system, which the company touts to have been designed to improve patient comfort and shortening time to diagnosis. The system features a ‘hexagonal close pattern’ detector pixel design that was developed to improve final image resolution while using a lower radiation dose. Automatic exposure and contrast controls, along with the company’s image processing algorithms, help create an image tuned for each woman’s unique anatomy.
The device also uses FUJIFILM’s patented Comfort Paddle that contours to the unique shape of every breast thanks to its flexible material and a 4-way pivot. New grips and padding were designed to further improve comfort.
