The main problem with them, and the reason other people did not begin to work with them immediately, is their size as planetary features and the limiting resolution of Venera," Aubele says.
Charley Hagay, Director of Radiology at Rene Huguenin commented, "After significant search in the market, we have chosen the SenoScan system due to its high limiting resolution and superior DQE characteristics which we believe are critical in breast imaging applications.
This enables greater limiting resolution measurements, making it possible to characterize samples with narrower NIR spectral features, such as narrow bandpass filters.
