The Food and Drug Administration has given Carestream Health Inc. approval to sell its newest image acquisition software with an optional bone suppression feature, Carestream officials said Tuesday.

The software creates a companion image that can improve visibility of lung nodules and other pathology by suppressing the appearance of posterior ribs and clavicles.

Carestream’s current software already offers companion images that can enhance visualization of tubes, PICC lines and pneumothorax, officials said.
