Find more information on how Raforninn´s mobile mammography solution works, in the Icelandic Cancer Society´s success story:
The Icelandic Cancer Society´s screening program went digital in 2008. Raforninn lead the project which made the ICS fully digtial and paperless. The national mammography screening program in Iceland is somewhat of a logistics and technical challenge. More than 30 rural Health Care Centers take part in the screening. The smallest centers only offer breast screening service for 1 day semiannually. The Icelandic Cancer Society runs a combined Breast- and Cervical cancer screening, inviting women from the age of 40 both services in one visit.
Compact, easy to manage mammography trailer.
To keep down the costs, procedures and equipment have been developed so everything needed can be moved around in a specially modified small trailer, towed by a standard 4×4 Van. The complete setup includes every article from the x-ray unit and necessary computer hardware to the cabins for undressing and dressing. The trailer with all the equipment weighs 3 metric tons (6600 lbs) The key component, the Direct Digital x-ray unit, is moved using a remote controlled caterpillar device, small enough to drive into any building. All this is designed to be operated by one person.
This is our cost effective alternative to huge and expensive Mammography Trailers. Our small trailer has a climate system which keeps the inside temperature at room temperature during transport or when the equipment is on hold outside a health service building. This solution, which allows the equipment to be moved into any building, utilizes the healthcare providers existing infrastructure much better than any available Mammography Trailer solution.
Image data transfer through low bandwith networks.
The x-ray equipment is moved from one Health Care Center to another and put in any vacant room. Using Citrix software solutions the Icelandic Cancer Society´s information systems are made available at any Health Care Center, even through low bandwith networks. The digital connection is either through standard ADSL or GSM data networks. Thus all screening data is available at the ICS headquarters in real time. The Image data is sent by secure portable HDs. Thus the sreening images are available on the ICS PACS within 24 hours of acquisition. Transfer of one day worth of image data into the ICS PACS takes about 10 minutes and the system automatically links the images to the correct patient IDs as the DICOM worklist is available on the mobile x-ray unit through the remote connections.
Modern DR mammography unit made portable.
The new Mobile Mammography solution is based on more than two decades of experience and development but conversion to digital imaging posed new challenges that were addressed by a very resourceful group of our inhouse engineers. The goal was to make modern DR mammography unit portable at a sensible cost, allowing healthcare providers to offer screening services to their customers.
We think we are the only company offering this kind of Mobile Mammograpy Solution.
