StereoMirror Covered in Scientific American

The stereo mammography study by BBN and the Emory Breast Clinic continues to get great coverage. Even Scientific American has an article on the study that includes additional statistics from the U.S. Department of Health on the number of women and men diagnosed with breast cancer. Here's the paragraph that mentions the StereoMirror. Stereo mammography provides radiologists with a three-dimensional view of the internal structure of the breast by taking two images from slightly different angles—much the way our two eyes create depth perception, or moviemakers create 3-D IMAX films. These mammography images are displayed on two Planar Systems More…

There was a lot of great coverage of the presentation by Dr. David Getty at RSNA. He discussed the results of the clinical study performed by BBN and the Emory University Breast Clinic. The study evaluated whether digital stereo mammography could significantly reduce false positives and false negatives in the detection of breast cancer. Here's a sample from an article in the RSNA publication distributed at the show. Check out page six. Dr. Getty said he now looks to improve standard scrolling through the stack of image slices by giving radiologists a stereo view through the volume of slices. If this technology works, he said, radiologists could More…
