Image quality. Clearly excellent.
Senographe* Care lets you confidently detect and characterize mammographic findings. Every component – from tube to detector to post-processing – contributes to outstanding image quality. But you all have your own preferences. Some like sharper images, some smoother. Now with eContrast your Senographe Care lets you select from 6 image flavors to adapt to the breast or your preference.
Six contrasts levels. Your images the way you like them.
Breasts differ, and so do clinicians’ viewing preferences. eContrast lets you improve structure visibility for almost any breast type, including implants and stereo images. You can choose among six contrast levels, the setting that optimizes your visual comfort and diagnostic performance. And that’s not all – eContrast improves the image on spot views because the display is optimized for
the region under the paddle.
Efficient imaging at low dose
An independent conversion detector with a Cesium-Iodide (CsI) scintillator on an amorphous Silicon (a-Si) flat-panel array results in a high DQE (70%1) for efficient imaging at low dose
Repeatable image quality at optimized radiation dose
A dual-track X-ray tube (Mo/Rh) delivers an optimal X-ray spectrum to penetrate the breast based on breast density and compressed breast thickness. Automatic Optimization of Parameters (AOP) helps you identify the densest breast regions. It automatically selects the appropriate anode, filter, kV and mAs, ensuring repeatable image quality at optimized radiation dose.
Get it right to work. And fast.
The industry’s largest field of view. Fast access to priors. Easy and quick patient positioning with automatic gantry rotation and quick angle setting. Together, these features give you remarkable flexibility and performance.
Speed up your workflow
- The Senographe Care digital detector offers the industry’s largest field of view (24 x 31 cm). It also lets you choose a standard 19 x 23 cm field of view, so you can image a wide range of breast sizes.
- Technologist-focused design allows easy and quick patient positioning: Pre-set gantry positioning enables automatic gantry rotation and quick angle setting.
- TechInsight functionality provides fast access to priors and gives accurate indications to the technologist regarding breast positioning.
- 80% of contracted detectors manufactured in 1999 were still in service in 20102.
- The iLinq* system gives you online access to a technical expert, through your equipment console, to solve procedural or processing issues in real time.
We called it Senographe Care for a reason.
Careful attention to a woman’s health – from low-dose imaging to an innovative, interactive approach to mammography – lets you redefine the patient experience.
Low dose by design
- The detector provides high DQE with independent conversion technology for efficient imaging at low dose.
- The GE AOP automatic exposure mode, based on breast density, delivers optimized and consistent image quality while minimizing average glandular dose.
- The X-ray tube, with exclusive rhodium anode, provides a high-purity spectrum for optimum contrast at low dose for dense breasts.
Ergonomics that work
- Ergonomic breast handles help reduce patient muscle contraction.
- Ergonomic paddle design and rounded bucky shape help optimize patient comfort.
- Maximum desired compression can be pre-set; compression slows when contacting the breast, enhancing patient comfort.
Experience SensorySuite* (Optional)
SensorySuite is an interactive experience designed to stimulate the senses and distract patients from discomfort, pain, or anxiety they may experience during a mammogram. Each patient chooses the environmental ambiance she prefers – Seaside, Garden, or Waterfall – using an in-room tablet PC remote control. The pleasant sounds and images may improve your patients’ experience and enhance the high level of patient care you provide.
