Koning Breast CT 1000 is a system that takes 3D images of the breast with spatial resolution and without painful compression. It is designed to help diagnose breast cancer. The patient is exposed to radiation levels in the range of diagnostic mammograms in a rapid 10-second exposure. Unlike MRI and CT scans, Koning Breast CT is not claustrophobic. It also has a low false-positive rate and a low false-negative rate, according to the company.
