Software, Electrical Impedance Scanning, Mammography
Definition : Electrical impedance software designed to operate mammographic systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of electrical impedance mammographic systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of impedance measurements performed during the scanning procedure and facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. The software is usually not available separate from the electrical impedance system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Mammographic electrical impedance scanning system software is mainly intended as an adjunct test for ambiguous mammograms to facilitate early diagnostics and reduce the number of biopsies.
