Helianthus

High quality image and reliability

The Full Field Digital Mammography Helianthus and Helianthus BYM are complete mammography solutions optimized for digital imaging in breast cancer screening and diagnostic procedures.

Amorphous Selenium is the most advanced technology to produce the highest signal/noise ratio and offers greater efficiency compared to other known technologies. With Amorphous Selenium the X-Radiation is transformed directly into electric charges without relying on an intermediate step to convert X-Ray energy to light. So the direct detection avoids a light diffusion effect that degrades image quality, produces a clear signal profile and preserves the image sharpness.

Helianthus BYM 3D

Helianthus is also available in BYM version fitted with fully motorized isocentric C-Arm (vertical and rotation movement) that allows all breast projections without moving the patient and without adjusting the height of the C-Arm. Helianthus BYM is upgradeable with BYM 3D FFDM digital stereotactic biopsy device. The C-Arm positioning for biopsy views (+/-15°) is motorized and selectable when the BYM 3D FFDM device is inserted.

The biopsy device,“BYM 3D” for our FFDM, is easily interchangeable with the Potter Bucky and the Magnification Kit. The incidence angle settable over 180° guaranties the best breast inner lesion approach. The automatic positioning on the Left, Scout and Right projections allows an easy, secure and fast exam. The 3D biopsy S/W is integrated in the acquisition station and includes the user settable database for the selection of needle and biopsy guns associated to the codes, image and dimensions for the best flexibility and maximum reliability.
