The reference in low dose mammography
Low dose, uncompromised image quality
The As Low as Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle is impetus for our role as an innovation leader. That’s why we at Siemens reduce women’s exposure during screenings with CARE technologies. Many of which are refined and enhanced.
Fast direct-to digital aSe detector
Making it easier to detect small and low contrast objects, the direct-to-digital amorphous selenium (aSe) detector directly converts X-ray energy into an electric charge. Your advantage: higher Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE1). Its fast speed also reduces time between exposures for optimized workflow and patient throughput.
Time-tested Tungsten Tube
Over a decade ago, we at Siemens invented the Tungsten tube. Compared to film based systems, it can save up to 50% dose by using the Tungsten/Rhodium combination. And it’s especially good at capturing dense breast tissue.
Optimally sets exposure parameters for each breast and ensures the right dose for each dedicated object. It selects the best anode/filter combination depending on breast thickness, density and institution specific definition, such as Mo/Mo, Mo/Rh, or W/Rh. Five different dose levels further enhance optimal exposure.
To optimize exposure parameters for each individual breast size and composition, the Automatic Exposure Control (AEC) determines the dose based on the contrast needed for the image. Enhancements allow it to work in every scanning position and view, such as CC and MLO, and to automatically eliminate the pectoral muscle as a reference.
Enjoy sharper, easily adjustable images with a newly refined image processing software. With a range of predefined image impressions, you can select the best for your clinical needs. Also choose from five different so-called flavors, including Contrast Enhancement, Edge Enhancement and more.
Greater comfort, relaxed patients
Put women at ease. One-of-a-kind features on the MAMMOMAT Inspiration soothe and calm women during the entire mammography procedure. A win-win situation resulting in shorter screenings and better image quality.
Smooth shapes, non-intrusive lines, a color palette of pastel pink, lime and silver throughout, even on the operating buttons: the design offers visual comfort during the exam.
Getting women to relax – your goal during mammograms – might be as simple as changing the lighting. The unique MoodLight LED panel lets you select between changing colors and a specific one of your choice.
Instead of using a standard compression level, OpComp compresses only as long as a woman’s breast is soft and pliable. As soon as it has reached optimal compression for best image quality, it stops automatically. For added comfort, more efficiency and, often, lower dose.
Easy-to-Use, outstandingly quick
Work with ease and efficiency. MAMMOMAT Inspiration is designed for a seamless workflow. Time-consuming tasks become quick and simple. For more time to focus on women and for easy transitions from one screening to the next.
Automatically opens the scheduler when the exam is completed, allowing you to work seamlessly. Clicking once moves to your next exam where the user interface is already ready for the first exposure.
Convenient Single-Touch Positioning
Moves the tube head from cranio-caudal to mediolateral-oblique in an instant. With only a single touch.
Multiple release options
Three varying options for X-ray release give you efficiency and flexibility during screenings. Choose between the standard control box, the hand switch or the foot switch, depending on what best fits your needs.
Seamless Isocentric Rotation
No matter which position is next, the center of the detector always stays at the same height, letting you transfer to the next exam just by pushing a button.
True Tomo, breakthrough innovations
Innovations like True 3D Breast Tomosynthesis2,3, Stereotactic Biopsy2 and syngo.Breast Care2,3 create new diagnostic possibilities, reduce necessary work steps and fulfill your need for high quality and efficient daily work – anywhere4.
True 3D Breast Tomosynthesis
Creating new diagnostic possibilities, True 3D Breast Tomosynthesis signifies a quantum leap in mammography. Images with heightened sensitivity give you clearer results and a higher detection rate.
Even in women with denser breasts.
MAMMOMAT Inspiration offers the widest angle (50°) in the industry. This large angular range directly affects the depth resolution of the 3D images. And the new Siemens HD Volume Reconstruction takes tomosynthesis even to the next level. Three specially developed features, the Full Resolution Read-out of the detector, equalizing FBP and Mass Enhancement, are optimally brought together – helping you achieve outstanding high-definition image quality with enhanced spatial and depth resolution for especially reliable diagnosis. Advantages, as you’ll see, that are nothing short of excellent.
Clear-cut procedures and intuitive operation are key to fast but highly accurate examinations. With this in mind, we designed a Stereotactic Biopsy solution that consistently reduces the necessary work steps and guides the operator intuitively through the entire procedure. The results are rather impressive and help to speed up the biopsy procedure considerably without compromising on diagnostic confidence.
With syngo.Breast Care you get a flexible, client-server based solution for your diagnosis – wherever4 you are, and even with simultaneous users.
