Software, Light Scanning
Definition : Software designed to operate light (i.e., photo) 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 light scanning systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements and images obtained during the scanning procedure and the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information system. Light scanning system software is usually not available separate from the scanning system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the lifetime of the system. Dedicated light scanning system software intended for breast tissue (i.e., mammographic) assessment systems that typically use infrared light for scanning is also available.
