Fujifilm's Aspire Cristalle
Last Wednesday Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. announced FDA 510(k) clearance of its digital mammography system — Aspire Cristalle. It was first introduced in Asia and Europe.

The system's detector engineering has been improved and it has more patient-focused ergonomics. The company claims that those new features lead to a faster diagnosis for clinicians and more comfort for the patient.

"Aspire Cristalle nicely represents our latest culmination of imaging innovation and attention to every detail in design," Rob Fabrizio, director of marketing and product development of digital x-ray and women's health at Fujifilm, said in a statement.

One of the new features that were created to make the patient more comfortable is the Comfort Paddle. It has soft edges, a flexible composition and four-way pivot that forms to the shape of each individual woman's breast.

It also has patient grip handles and padding, soft backlighting and mural decals in order to try to put the patients at ease during the exam and make it more accessible for women with wheelchairs.

The new Hexagonal Close Pattern is a detector pixel design that provides higher acquisition efficiency in order to get better detail, higher DQE, higher MTF and lower dose compared to traditional square pixel arrays.

The system's image quality was also improved with iAEC automated exposure controls and ISC tuned contrast.
