WHY WE CHOSE THE CLARITY 3D MAMMOGRAPH OF THE FINNISH HOUSE PLANMED.
The Finnish company PLANMED was the one that introduced the first fully automated mammograph in the 80's with automatic isocentric arm movement, adjustable magnification and two-phase compression. In the 2000s it switched to fully Digital Mammographs with an automatic radiation exposure system and TriFilter technology for a lower radiation dose. It is a company with a lot of experience and specialization in 3D imaging in both dentistry and medicine.
Clarity is the latest achievement of Planmed, which incorporates the latest technologies with the aim of achieving very high definition with a low dose of radiation.
"Ygeia Iatriki Apeikonisi", wanting to offer the women of our wider region the most innovative techniques and high level services for the early diagnosis of breast cancer, installed the 1st in Thessaly 3D Mammograph 3D Tomosynthesis of the pioneering construction Planmed Finland Clarity™ 3D 2017 construction, a 2016 design .
This is a system that is particularly friendly to women, awarded for its design, with ergonomic design and details that allows the examination to be facilitated for both the patient and the operator.
In addition, the Planmed Clarity 3D Digital Tommosynthesis 3D Mammograph has the following advantages:
Unique MaxView breast positioning system.
One of the major problems with mammography is that it is difficult to detect cancers that are located in the back of the breast, near the chest wall. Cancer is often hidden there. The reason is that the back of the breast is not shown on mammography, especially in small breasts. With the MaxView system the breast is "pulled" forward during the examination and so its back does not go out of scope but is included in it. Thus, imaging of up to 30% of a larger part of the breast in small breasts is achieved. This shows the entire breast up to the pectoralis major muscle, so that no lesions can be hidden.
Full Field Flex AEC radiation dose detection system.
The required dose is automatically adjusted depending on the irradiation area by "reading" the whole breast and not just a few indicative points in it. This optimizes the imaging with the optimal dose for each part of the breast.
Continuous syn-and-shoot imaging method for image accuracy.
Continuous syn-and-shoot imaging method is used for image accuracy. It allows extremely clear images of tomosynthesis with high visibility of sensitive structures.
Tomomarker for accurate fault detection.
The Tomomarker method is used to accurately detect faults. This way we get clear and sharp images without artificial objects.
Soft paddle for a softer feeling of compression of the breasts.
Soft paddle technology is used for a softer feeling of breast compression and SideAccess technology is used for optimal ergonomics for patient placement.
