Advanced and innovative breast tomosynthesis system including the integrated capability to generate full-field digital mammography (FFDM) images.
It offers a wide range of functions, such as FFDM, DBT (with optional synthetic image G-View), Dual Energy (CESM) and image-guided biopsy.
Featuring a unique and ergonomic design to ensure patient comfort and easiness for the operator: the gantry is able to tilt and rotate down 90° for interventional procedures with the patient in prone position.
CERAMIC X-RAY TUBE
HIGH PERFORMANCE GENERATOR
DUAL ENERGY (CESM)
Ceramic X-ray tube
The special metal-ceramic X-ray tube guarantees continuous heat dissipation for high patient’s throughput and high performance in all acquisition modalities, while assuring lower maintenance practices.
It also features a reduced weight and higher stability to perform a Step&Shoot DBT acquisition to get images with more sharpness and details.
High performance generator
The system is equipped with high-frequency and high-performance generators, with options able to reach powers up to 8 kW, to avoid compromise in the demanding requirements of a multimodality system.
The innovative design of the gantry enables a wide freedom of quick movements in any direction.
The forward tilting movement (up to -10°) allows the positioning of non-collaborative patients (i.e., in wheelchairs), while the backward tilting movement ensures the relaxation of the pectoral muscle which allows to include more breast tissue into the view.
Backward tilting can reach the horizontal position (+90°), for the execution of prone procedures when combined with the dedicated accessories.
RAFFAELLO, the dedicated management software for breast care, ensures a rapid and easy workflow for each acquisition modality (2D, DBT, CESM and BIOPSY).
The user-interface is easy and intuitive and it is configurable according to the operator’s needs.
Upgrades and activation of additional modules are always one click-away whenever the need of the facility changes.

Step&Shoot acquisition allows exposures while the tube is stationary: the result is an image that is completely devoid of blurring effects and with sharper outlines.
Wide angular range ensures an optimal separation of structures among planes, with optimal resolution of overlapping anatomies.
Thanks to the Iterative Reconstruction Algorithm, dose can be reduced to a minimum while offering images with no binning and high level of detail, allowing the identification of microcalcifications and tiny breast structures.
A dedicated option for metal-artifact removal increases the readability of images.
Dual Energy (CESM)
Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM) can be used to reveal the potential tumour angiogenesis. It combines the enhancement, followed by the injection of an iodinated contrast agent, with the deletion of the anatomy, given by a dual-energy acquisition and a dedicated subtraction algorithm.
Thanks to the proprietary image registration algorithm, any artifact from patient movement between low- and high-energy acquisition is suppressed.
Available as a software option for systems already equipped with multiple filtration.
SMART FINDER is the accessory device that enables the execution of image guided biopsy based on any of the imaging modalities available on the system.
The motorized needle positioner is combined with a high-precision needle simulator software which guides the radiologist to the choice of the best approach to the lesion.
Up-right position, lateral decubitus position or even prone position are possible, according to the chosen patient support.
Thanks to the unique tilting movement up to horizontal position and the dedicated accessories SMART FINDER, SMART CHECKER and FLEXITABLE, radiologists can perform prone breast biopsies with higher confidence and better patient comfort.
