The Helianthus Series embraces three different full-field digital flat-panel mammography systems that can perform both screening and 2D or 3D diagnostics. All the mammography equipments benefit from state-of-the-art techniques to detect breast cancer, including dual energy (contrast-enhanced mammography).

15° SCREENING

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

50° IN-DEPTH DIAGNOSTICS

The DBT wide-angle, requiring a longer scan time (7.7s ) improves the discrimination of overlapping tissues (in case of in-depth analysis)

Customized digital Mammography

Helianthus

Helianthus

Helianthus results from a demanding challenge aimed to create a modular digital mammography system that allows the end-user to carry out in-depth screening and clinical examinations with the most up-to-date techniques and let the radiologist evaluate, at any time, possible integration of more advanced features.

VERSATILE PERFORMANCE

This mammo unit only allows the acquisition of 2D digital mammography images. However, the system is designed to be integrated at any time with the most current diagnostic methods, such as tomosynthesis and dual-energy (contrast-enhanced mammography). A wide range of accessories allows the configuration for all interventional practices (including stereotactic and tomo-guided biopsy).

IMPROVED SAFETY

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.

UP-TO-DATE FEATURES

To guarantee confident and accurate diagnosis, the Helianthus 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.

THE PROPER RADIATION DOSE
FOR EACH KIND OF BREAST TISSUE

DIGITAL DETECTOR

In the Helianthus unit, the digital detector is also used to set optimal exposure parameters in an automatic or a semi-automatic mode. According to the compression paddle employed, a continuous portion of the sensitive area of the detector is selected for a particular procedure and the actual density of the tissue to be examined is determined using a short preexposure pulse

FAST EXPOSURE 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
