Software, Stereotactic System, Image-Guided Biopsy, Mammographic
Definition : Image-guided stereotactic system software designed to operate computer-aided mammography biopsy systems and control/monitor their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of stereotactic mammography biopsy systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to make possible the appropriate performance of the system during a biopsy procedure and to facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to a workstation and/or imaging and information systems. Mammographic biopsy image-guided stereotactic system software is frequently available separate from the biopsy system and may be also updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system.
