Digital screening mammography system MAMMO-RPd
OPTIMAL SCREENING MACHINE — HIGH IMAGE QUALITY
Mammo-RPd, a state-of-the-art digital scanning mammography system. A unique
device developed to meet the requirements of patients, physicians, and laboratory assistants,
ensuring reduced effective doses and high quality of images.
The small pixel size of the digital detector (less than 50 μm) and high spatial resolution (not
less than 10 line pairs/mm), as well as decreased effective doses, render this machine
suitable for both screening and diagnostic examinations.
The unique combination of high-quality imaging (10 line pairs/mm) and low
radiation doses provide a basis for quality screening to detect early stages
of breast cancer.
RADIOLOGIST AND TECHNICIAN WORKSTATIONS:
The software allows performing breast imaging studies in accordance with the WHO-approved protocol.
Two medical high-resolution monochrome monitors (not less than 20 inches, 5 megapixels) provide the physician
with comfortable conditions for accurate diagnosis. A medical printer can print images on film, retaining high image quality.
The remote control unit available at the technician workstation is a fullfunction computer with modern DICOM compatible software.
The operator is able to enter patient data, adjust image settings, expose, control imaging quality, and perform digital processing,
image storage and transmission. Integration into the computer network of the health center is also possible.
STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGIES TO REDUCE RADIATION DOSE FOR PATIENTS
The system employs the fan-shaped X-ray beam scanning technology, which allows significant reduction of scattered radiation.
This technology makes the use of an antiscatter grid unnecessary, thus reducing the effective dose by more than 50 % compared
with conventional mammography machines while retaining image quality, which is a key factor for screening mammography.
This achievement has been due to the use of state-of-the-art technologies when developing a detecting device that has both high detective
quantum efficiency (DQE) and extremely low electronic noise. The effective equipment and the dedicated digital mammography software help produce
images of superior quality. Image analysis and image processing are fully focused on diagnostic purposes and guarantee optimal visualization
and detection of micro calcifications and lesions.
- Any angle of stand rotation, automatic C-arm locking in the standard positions, and height compensation during rotation;
- Specially designed handles are convenient for the patient and facilitate patient positioning;
- Compression control with a set of pedals;
- Emergency Stop button;
- Set of various sized compression plates, including plates for target imaging;
- Movement control from two control panels located on the sides of the machine;
- X-ray protective movable transparent screen.
THE MOBILE DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY CABINET BRINGS SCREENING TO RESIDENTS
OF HARD-TO-REACH AREAS:
Breast cancer is largely detected nowadays. Early diagnosis decreases mortality, as breast cancer is the
curable type of malignancy. Screening examinations are now becoming available for residents of
hard-to-reach and underequipped regions. The mobile mammography cabinet provides a unique opportunity to
perform examination using the state-of-the-art Mammo-RPd digital mammography system.
