GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL is an elegant digital mammography system for the highest comfort of both patients and radiographers, thanks to the perfect ergonomic design and the complete and intuitive user interface.
The system enhances his flexibility through the inclination toward the patient for an easier positioning, upward to allow the relaxation of the pectoral muscle for more breast tissue visualization and the possibility to perform stereotactic biopsies, even in prone position.
PATENTED CIRCULAR GANTRY
WIDE RANGE OF MOVEMENTS
STEREOTACTIC PRONE BIOPSY
Patented circular gantry
The unique circular shape allows the additional option of face-to-face positioning which can make technologist’s work easier and quicker. Conventional positioning is however not impaired by the system shape and therefore possible whenever required.
Wide range of movements
The tilting movement of the gantry requires the patient to lean to this, improving the relaxation of the pectoral muscle and an increase of up to 2 cm in breast tissue included in the field of view*.
Furthermore, the tilting movement in the opposite direction facilitates the positioning of women in a wheelchair.
It is also possible to tilt the gantry down to the horizontal position to perform procedures in prone position.
