Each mammography exam is unique and requires a personalized approach. Helianthus DBT is an advanced digital breast tomosynthesis system intended to meet all patient's diagnostic needs.
The new top-of-the-line Helianthus digital mammography system, the DBT version, is already configured for all mammography procedures including tomosynthesis. It is easily upgradable with cutting-edge biopsy techniques in tomosynthesis and contrast mammography (Dual Energy).
Helianthus DBT allows the operator to perform tomosynthesis exams by choosing between three scan angles: 15°, 24°, or 50°. Image acquisition is always carried out at the maximum resolution of the digital detector.
The DBT smallest scan angle is optimal when an extremely short scan time is required (even 2.5s) to minimize movement, artifacts, and patient discomfort
24° Standard Diagnostics
The DBT intermediate angle always has a short scan time (4s ) and excellent sharpness. It guarantees a better resolution and is an optimal choice for standard diagnostics procedures
The DBT wide-angle, requiring a longer scan time (7.7s ) improves the discrimination of overlapping tissues (in case of in-depth analysis)
Helianthus DBT produces images of excellent quality while minimizing the radiation dose. In particular, the mammography system benefits from:
Three digital full-field flat-panel detectors with both amorphous selenium and amorphous silicon technology. All panels have the same resolution (85 μm) even in tomosynthesis and guarantee the acquisition of excellent diagnostic images. They differ only in the cost and execution times of the procedure, thereby allowing the user to adapt the set-up of the system based upon his/her specific needs.
COMBO modality produces 2D and 3D images during the same compression cycle while applying a total radiation dose lower than the limits imposed by the EUREF protocol's limits for conventional mammography.
“M-View/VI” Software produces 2D images directly from tomosynthesis images, without administering an additional radiation dose to the patient.
