Helianthus C is the direct result of the recent and significant redesign of the company’s entire product line. This compact unit represents the basic model of a standardized platform and exemplifies the fastest and most cost-effective transition to digital mammography.
Optical Price-performace Ratio
Helianthus allows acquiring only 2D digital images. While this system is not upgradable, it can be integrated with a wide range of accessories configured to suit most routine mammography procedures
To guarantee confident and accurate diagnosis, the Helianthus C system is outfitted with state-of-the-art features such as automatic collimation, “Smart μ Press” compression system and the powerful POEt (Processing for Optimal Enhancement) software.
Fast Expose Mode
In the presence of implants or when it is difficult to carry out a correct compression of the breast, it is still possible to optimize the dose delivered with another mode of exposure, called FAST, based on the thickness of the tissue to be examined. The exposure parameters are always set to satisfy the requirements of the European Guidelines
Smoother movements thanks to the isocentric servo-assisted movements of the C-arm. Extensive rotational and translation movements for patient's quick and easy positioning All the exam parameters are easily accessible on the 7" color touchscreen displays on the C-arm's sides.
The redesign of the new Helianthus C has resulted in a further improvement in terms of the system's ergonomics thanks to the isocentric servo assisted movements of the isocentric C-arm that enables smoother and more controlled movements. Extensive manual (motorized as an option) rotational and translation movements (up to 91 cm vertical travel) allow a quick and easy positioning of the patient, even for those with impaired or limited mobility.
Three multi-switches placed on the sides of the C-arm and the front of the X-ray tube assist the operator in managing the motorized movements of the arm.
Two 7" color touchscreen displays placed on the C-arm’s sides assist the technician in viewing and managing all the exam parameters.
When rotating the C-arm, a sensitive and precise obstacle detection system ensures maximum patient safety.
In the standard configuration, Helianthus C is supplied with an integrated acquisition and control workstation (AWS). In this case, according to the customer's preference, the medical display monitor is directly fixed on the mammography system, on the left or right side. On the console, a touchpad keyboard is available. A CD/DVD burner and a USB port are positioned on the side of the console. All the AWS electronics, including the Personal Computer, is installed inside the mammography unit.
The exposure button, provided with a spiral cable, allows the operator to perform radiation exposures in complete safety behind an
appropriate protective barrier.
