The Food and Drug Administration has cleared an upgrade to a digital mammography system produced by Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA.

The clearance specifically applies to the Xpress CR Digital Mammography system and the use of certain cassettes and a specialized control station, according to a recent press release.

Combined with advanced imaging techniques and specially designed mammography plates, the upgraded digital mammography system is said to deliver better images.

The Xpress CR Digital reportedly uses the most advanced “phosphor receptor available, Cesium Bromide (CsBr), which delivers a high level of detective quantum efficiency (DQE),” according to the release.
