MAGNETOM SKYRA DE 3T

Advantages of using 3T Magnetom Skyra:

  • Revolutionary technology provides the ability to combine antennas and connect a large number of channels (up to 204 elements), offering a wide range of indications from examining a finger or lips to examining the entire body.
  • Optimized scan strategies can be selected based on patient status.
  • The minimum size of the lesions can reach up to 2 mm
  • Reduce the standard scanning time
  • Improving image quality by minimizing and correcting the effect of motion during the acquisition of a sequence
  • The table concept allows for easier patient positioning and better examination of obese patients (up to 250 Kg), geriatric and immobile.
  •  
  • Only one patient installation is required without repositioning.
  • Possibility to position the patient with the legs for almost all possible examinations, reducing anxiety and claustrophobia.
  • The open and wide tunnel (70 cm) reduces anxiety for claustrophobic patients.
  •  
  • To reduce patient anxiety and claustrophobia, it is possible to reduce acoustic volume, adjust ventilation and indirect illumination in the tunnel and use the audio headphones

DIGITAL MAMOGRAPHY WITH TOMOSYNTESYS

TOMOSINTESYS is a diagnosis method that consists in scanning the breast from various angles by rotating the lateral tube, after which the system reconstructs sections of 1 mm thick throughout the breast.

Compared with classical, analogous mammography, tomosynthesis has the following advantages:

  • an detect small, infracentrimetric lesions even in the dense breast due to the clarity of the image and lack of overlapping glandular tissue
  • accurately visualizes microcalcification outbreaks, these being early signs of breast cancer and which ultrasound can not identify
  • reduces false positives in classical mammography
  • reduces the dose of radiation compared to repeated mammograms in order to obtain a correct diagnosis
  • reduces pain due to breast compression

Mammomat Inspiration from Siemens - Prime Technology

  • ensures high-quality images thanks to the aSe detector
  • reduces the radiation dose by 30% without compromising image quality, optimizes image reducing scattered radiation.
  • is provided with High Definition Breast Tomosinthesis for Tomosynthesis, Stereotactic Biopsy for Biopsy and Synga Breast Care - image processing station.
