Breast Imaging Cuts in Medicare Final Rule May Delay Diagnosis and Treatment and Increase Patient Anxiety

Washington, DC (Nov. 27, 2013) — Drastic reimbursement cuts for image-guided breast biopsies and other medical imaging techniques in the 2014 Medicare Fee Schedule Final Rule may further reduce women’s access to mammography and other breast cancer services. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) directly cut imaging reimbursement every year since 2007.

You asked about Matrox products for radiology in response to the video I posted here:
http://www.radrounds.com/video/aspyra-pacs-viewer-performance
This video shows performance improvements Aspyra was able to take advantage of with their software, thanks to Matrox Xenia Series hardware & SDK. Aspyra is using the Xenia Pro in their system, which is our flagship product. Xenia Series is shipping with many new PACS workstations & this board also makes a great upgrade for older workstations since it has built-in backward & forward compatibility with the greatest number of medical & non medical displays, including many older proprietary models.
Another recent product from Matrox is the RAD LPX - while this board doesn't power all the same resolutions as Xenia Series, it is available in a low-profile PCI form factor (as well as PCI Express) which may fit better in some systems. You can get more info on all of our products designed for medical imaging workstations here: www.matroxmed.com.
Thanks for your interest!
