Ashley County Medical Center Installs Arkansas’ First FujiFilm Apsire Cristalle With Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging and medical informatics solutions, has announced that Ashley County Medical Center has recently invested in new upgrades to its Fujifilm ASPIRE Cristalle digital mammography solution. Fujifilm upgraded Ashley County Medical Center’s ASPIRE Cristalle unit with digital breast tomosysnthesis (DBT or 3D) – making it the first Fujifilm 3D digital mammography solution to be installed in Arkansas. DBT acquires a series of low-dose images of the breast at different angles; the acquired reconstructed tomographic images provide greater visibility of the breast tissue which can help radiologists identify lesions which might otherwise be difficult to visualize in traditional 2D mammogram images because of the presence of overlapping breast structures.

“Fujifilm is very excited about Ashley County Medical Center’s latest upgrade to technology that will enhance their ability to provide quality care to the people of their community and surrounding areas,” said Rob Fabrizio, Director of Strategic Marketing, Digital Radiography, Computed Tomography and Women’s Health, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “The ASPIRE Cristalle with digital breast tomosynthesis is designed to improve visibility for greater diagnostic confidence, increase patient comfort and improve the overall patient experience.”

Fujifilm’s ASPIRE Cristalle with DBT combines state-of-the-art, Hexagonal Close Pattern (HCP) capture technology and intelligent image processing, optimizing dose and contrast based on individual breast composition. The result is low dose and fast acquisition of exceptional images for all breast types.  In addition, patients can experience a noticeable improvement in comfort during procedures with Fujifilm’s patented, flexible comfort paddle design, which provides gentle and even compression that is designed to more comfortably adapt to patient curves.

“This is a breakthrough in women’s health,” said Dr. James Workman, Radiologist at Ashley County Medical Center. “We expect it to improve the ability to differentiate smaller cancers from the surrounding tissue and help distinguish cancerous tissue from noncancerous tissue. We also expect this will decrease the number of false positive call backs for our patients, meaning women can feel calmer.”

For the Crossett, Arkansas community, the addition of Ashley County Medical Center’s ASPIRE Cristalle has helped clinicians diagnose patients, ensuring that more women have access to these lifesaving mammograms.  Most importantly, the new addition of DBT will bring even higher diagnostic capabilities to help physicians diagnose cancers earlier for better patient outcomes.

With roots tracing back to 1908, the hospital has been providing treatment and care to patients in the area for more than a century. The hospital is committed to providing excellent care to their patients in their community and surrounding areas.
