As the mammography community embraces digital mammography, newly converted sites must overcome the challenge of comparing new images with old. PACSGEAR introduced at RSNA 2008 its solution to the problem. Its PacsSCAN Film for Mammography digitizes plain-film mammograms and allows side-by-side comparison with images captured via full-field digital mammography systems. The digitized mammograms can be enhanced by using the company's Dynamic Contrast Algorithm (DCA), which gives the scanned images a digital look, according to PACSGEAR. The new product can be configured to display scanned images at the same resolution as their digital counterparts.
