Software, Electrical Impedance Scanning
Definition : Software designed to operate electrical impedance scanning systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of electrical impedance scanning systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements performed during the scanning procedure and facilitate sending/receiving patient information from and to information systems. Electrical impedance scanning system software is usually not available separate from the electrical impedance system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated electrical impedance scanning system software intended for use as an adjunct test for ambiguous mammograms is also available.
