This Finnish company (Hall B, #7142) is developing a full-field digital mammography system that it plans to offer as a retrofit to its installed base of Sophie screening units. Sophie Digital uses charge-coupled device (CCD) technology and a slot-scanning architecture, with resolution of 17 line pairs/mm and a field-of-view of 24 x 30 cm. Planmed hopes to start clinical trials of the system next year in preparation for a regulatory submission to the FDA.
