Productivity enhancements, high-speed film, and a CAD system for mammography headlined the Kodak booth the first week of August at the annual meeting of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators in Boston. The Kodak DirectView Capture Link System helps technologists identify and process cassettes and gives them the ability to review images at any linked computed radiography or digital radiography system. The work-in-progress CAD system, targeted for commercial release later this year, analyzes film mammograms. Clinical data submitted to the FDA show that 39.4% of missed breast cancers could have been detected 14.8 months earlier using this system.

A new high-speed general-purpose medical imaging film shown as a work-in-progress promises to reduce patient radiation dosage by up to 50% yet deliver high image quality.
