MicroDose Mammography receives product quality leadership award

Sectra has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan for its unique photon counting mammography system, Sectra MicroDose, with the Product Quality Leadership, Women's Health Imaging Europe 2010 award.

The award is based on evaluations in several areas including product performance, reliability and design.
Frost & Sullivan summarizes the industry challenges as "…the success of mammography vendors lies in their ability to develop new innovative products and enhance existing product line to not only meet patient requirements of comfort and safety but also regulatory requirements such as low dose radiation exposure without having to compromise on image quality."
“We head for improved customer productivity gains and clinical outcomes in our continuous development of existing products as well as in our research aimed at further improving breast cancer detection – for example through 3D imaging and spectral mammography." says Jesper Söderqvist, President of Sectra's mammography operations.
