Kubtec X-ray, a company out of Milford, CT, won FDA approval for its MOZART with TomoSpec breast specimen radiography system. Device, the first of its kind, features tomosynthesis technology that aims to provide greater confidence to surgeons excising tumors that the entire diseased tissue has been removed.
The volumetric images are created in one scan without having to reposition the sample within the X-ray chamber. The device can be located outside the surgical ward and results wirelessly transmitted to a PACS for clinicians back in the OR to view once the scan is complete. The process is faster than performing repeated 2D scans at different angles and produces a convenient and easy to analyze image that can be rotated and manipulated like any other 3D scan.
Here’s an example 3D scan of an excised breast tissue sample:
