GE Medical Systems has made its first commercial installation of Senographe 2000D, the company’s full-field digital mammography system. The unit received the CE Mark for European regulatory clearance this spring (SCAN 3/17/99), and on Sept. 2 Senographe was placed at Charite Hospital in Berlin. The Milwaukee-based firm plans to install more than 50 Senographes outside the U.S. by the end of the year.

Senographe 2000D’s digital detector is based on amorphous silicon flat-panel detectors manufactured in the company’s plant in Santa Clara, CA, a joint venture between GE and EG&G Amorphous Silicon (SCAN 9/3/97) The detectors are then shipped to France, where they are incorporated into Senographe systems built at the company’s x-ray and mammography factory in Buc.
