Negative pressure wound therapy device
Innovative Therapies, Inc. recently introduced Quantum. It is the first fully-loaded negative pressure wound therapy device with simultaneous irrigation, providing continuous healing for patients. Beyond a technological advancement, Quantum offers a new form of innovation for wound care – a cost-efficient purchase model in which hospitals pay only for therapy hours used versus the industry-standard rental model.

Therapy hours are preloaded onto Quantum based on hospital and outpatient needs, offering a seamless hospital-to-home system, helping to minimize cross-contamination.

The MAMMOMAT Inspiration Prime Edition
Siemens Healthcare’s MAMMOMAT Inspiration Prime Edition is the first mammography system that lowers patient dose up to 30 percent without compromising image quality. It is intended to lower dose by replacing the standard scatter radiation grid with a new algorithm for progressive image reconstruction. This new algorithm is intended to identify scatter-causing structures and calculates a corrected image, enabling complete use of primary radiation.
The MAMMOMAT Inspiration Prime Edition is based on the modular MAMMOMAT Inspiration platform for screening, diagnostics, and biopsy used by hospitals and physicians’ offices since 2007. Facilities have the option of purchasing the basic equipment, upgrading to biopsy or tomosynthesis features later as the need arises.
