The Finnish medical technology company Planmed Oy and the UK-based medical X-ray software solutions provider IBEX Innovations Ltd. have signed a collaboration agreement. The new agreement allows the integration of the IBEX Trueview® gridless scatter correction software with the Planmed Clarity™ digital mammography systems.
The advanced physics-based scatter removal software, Trueview, enables better image quality, improved workflow and better patient outcomes. It has been demonstrated to give better contrast in 2D and 3D mammograms – with up to 50% lower patient dose and up to 25% less breast compression.
“IBEX and Planmed share a vision that the very best technology should be used to improve patient outcomes and patient experience during mammography exams. We are therefore delighted to be working with Planmed to incorporate Trueview into their market-leading Planmed Clarity range and take mammography to the next level,” states Dr. Neil Loxley, CEO of IBEX.
“We are constantly listening to our customers and developing our product lines accordingly. We feel that this collaboration will bring added value, not only for the users but ultimately for the patients which is what really matters,” says Mr. Jan Moed, Managing Director of Planmed.
The Planmed Clarity digital mammography product line covers all the needs from optimized screening to diagnostic mammography examinations including digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). Based on vast experience, the Planmed Clarity product family is Planmed’s second-generation digital mammography line. It has been in the market since 2016 and has been well received among the customers worldwide.
