Software, Light Scanning, Mammographic
Definition : Light scanning software designed to operate mammographic scanning 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 mammographic scanning 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 (typically using infrared light) and the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information system. Mammographic light scanning system software is usually not available separate from the scanning system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system.
