Workstations, Digital Radiography, Mammographic
Definition : Digital radiography workstations designed to process digital data and images acquired by mammography units and systems. These workstations typically obtain the data directly from digital mammographic systems or through digitized scans of radiographic films or image plates. Digital mammography workstations typically consist of a high-speed digital computer, optical/magnetic disks, input and output devices, and processors; they usually follow the instructions of specialized software for mammography image processing. The workstations are frequently installed as a component of or interact with radiography (e.g., radiology information systems) and/or hospital information systems.
