Working with GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL is fast and easy. It fully meets the demands of busy mammography departments with high patient throughputs, such as screening units. Four control panels placed in strategic locations on the unit make it possible to control manual and automatic movements from any position.
The motorized movements of GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL with isocentric height control and the preset customizable automatic sequences of views speedup your examination.
Positioning with GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL is more comfortable and more flexible than positioning with any other mammography unit. You can use the conventional mode, positioning the patient from the side. or the face-to-face positioning: you might find it faster and more effective. Use one or the other depending on the patient’s anatomy: the aim is to optimize quickly and efficiently the quality of the result.
The human body is 3D and so is GIOTTO movements! The circle gantry provides the most achievable flexibility in suiting any woman´s anatomy. Women in wheelchairs take advantage of this unique characteristic: Giotto inclines towards the patient for easier exam positioning.
The inclined gantry of GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL means more comfort for the patient as they lean into the bucky. This position allows the pectoral muscle to be relaxed and up to 2 cm more breast tissue can be compressed and visualized, allowing more breast tissue to be visualized for diagnosis.
GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL is not provided with handles. Gripping on handles causes pectoral muscle contraction which in turn causes breast retraction: gravity reduces this effect.
GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL comes with SCS (Sensitive Compression System) to decrease patient discomfort during breast compression. The computer selects the compression speed sensing the density of the breast.
At IMS we know that perfect image quality is a pre-requisite for the early detection of breast cancer.
Selenium2 is the second generation of a-Se technology and the digital mammography detector with the highest S/N ratio has the best performance in terms of MTF and DQE. This is why GIOTTO provides the best image quality. Selenium 2 provides 85μ pixel size chose as the best compromise between highest spatial resolution and lowest noise.
Raffaello™ is the user interface able to clearly show the smallest detail of breast tissue. The Advanced Tissue Equalization Software designed by our R&D, help the visualization and detection of subtle lesion even in dense glandular tissue. Raffaello is a sophisticated advanced reading software which is easy to use.
Radiation exposure dose to the patient and image quality are competing factors in mammography. IMS has been the first to introduce a special solution for FFDM: a combination of Tungsten anode tube with Ag filter resulting in a significant decrease in the dose delivered to the patient.
GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL is the only digital mammography system able to perform also stereotactic biopsy with the patient in a prone or upright or lateral position, using the same detector!
The conversion to prone unit is quick and easy. The stereotactic device BIOPSY DIGIT simply slides in replacing the bucky. With a gentle movement the gantry tilts up to the horizontal position.
BIOPSY DIGIT is a high precision automatic, motorized stereotactic biopsy system designed for prone and upright biopsy.
It is easy for the patient to get on the Mammobed: with a lower height of only 74 cm there is no need for additional steps. Push-buttons placed on both sides of the Mammobed allow it to raise to the desired height.
Thanks to the four wheels, the Mammobed can be quickly positioned and the breast centered using the floating table top. Once positioned and the brakes applied all the movements will be provided and you can start the stereotactic biopsy procedure safely.
