Software, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanning, Mammographic
Definition : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 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 MRI systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements and images obtained during the scanning procedure and the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Mammographic MRI scanning system software is usually not available separate from the MRI system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. The software facilitates the assessment of MRI procedures using specialized breast surface coils; it is used as an adjunct to mammography in mammograms that are difficult to interpret.
