Software, Workstation Management, Mammographic Digital Radiography
Definition : Software designed to operate mammographic digital radiography workstations, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data and images obtained during the mammographic procedure. This software usually interacts with devices used in the procedure, such as digital mammography systems, recorders, displays, breast compressors, and sometimes with digitized scans of radiography films or image plates; it may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the data obtained during the procedure. Digital radiography mammographic workstation management software is intended to work only with one or a few models of workstations and related devices usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software is not usually available separate from the workstation but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
