DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Siemens has enhanced its digital radiography systems with technology that produces a soft tissue image of the chest. Riverain Medical’s SoftView® Enhanced Chest Imaging technology automatically suppresses the ribs and clavicles to improve the visibility of soft tissue structures in the lungs, allowing the physician to interpret pulmonary nodules with greater certainty. Furthermore, as SoftView uses the existing chest X-ray to produce the soft tissue image, it eliminates additional dose and motion artifacts commonly associated with dual energy solutions.
