FDA Approves Planmed’s Budget Friendly, but Attractive Clarity 2D Mammography System
Planmed, a Finnish company specializing in breast cancer radiography systems, won FDA approval for its Clarity 2D digital mammography device. The Clarity 2D is a budget mammography system that has a lot of the features that exist in more expensive systems.
Planmed touts its TriFilter technology that produces high quality images at a low radiation dose. The company’s MaxView technology uses swappable radiolucent sheets that put pressure around the breast to optimize the imaging results.
Interestingly, the Clarity 2D is designed to work within mobile clinics and high humidity environments, allowing for it to be used to screen for breast cancer in places far from traditional hospitals.
