BOSTON, Mass. and STOCKHOLM, Sweden – June 4, 2013 – A recent Frost & Sullivan report highlights the growing trend of digitalization in the Asian medical imaging market. As more companies convert from analogue to digital, ContextVision, software imaging partner for the most recognized medical imaging manufacturers worldwide, continues its expansion in Asia with three new mammography contracts.
Misconceptions about mammography, a global shortage of radiologists, and insufficient access to mammography services currently plague the imaging industry. These barriers result in an increase in undiagnosed or misdiagnosed breast cancer cases.
GOPView® Mammo, ContextVision’s image enhancement software product specifically developed for mammography provides:
- Optimized contrast between pectoral muscle, fat and parenchyma as well as within the parenchyma for each breast;
- Efficient noise suppression balanced with a strengthening of edges and fine structures;
- Visualization of subtle structures through the parenchyma;
- Customizable features for different manufacturers’ needs.
“ContextVision has been in the Asian market for more than 10 years. Our market share is steadily increasing due to high demand from Asian OEMs for our unsurpassed mammography image enhancement products,” said Anita Tollstadius, CEO of ContextVision. “These strong partner relationships and new contracts are important to ContextVision’s continued growth and success in the Asian market.”
