Kubtec Adds 3D Tomosynthesis to XPERT 80

Kubtec announced at the annual conference of the American Association of Pathology Assistants (AAPA) that they are expanding their proprietary use of 3-D tomosynthesis by bringing it to the XPERT 80 Specimen X-ray System. Kubtec pioneered the use of 3-D imaging for clinical specimens with the Mozart System, the first specimen X-ray system to use 3-D tomosynthesis.

This technology has now been scaled up to enable health care professionals to visualize larger specimens such as full mastectomies and even the longest of bone specimens – all in 3-D.

“The enthusiastic response to the Mozart System from surgeons, radiologists and pathologists prompted us to re-examine the technology and ask ‘Why not make it bigger?’ We know there is a huge demand for more accurate specimen visualization for these health care professionals,” Kubtec CEO Vikram Butani said.

The digital X-ray company plans to have this technology incorporated into the XPERT 80 System by the end of 2017.
