Convenient and Effective
Ergonomic design for patients and technologists
Innovative in technology, innovative in design
Optimum image quality
The motorized movements of GIOTTO IMAGEL with isocentric height control and the preset customizable automatic sequences of views speedup your examination.
Working with GIOTTO IMAGEL is fast and easy. It fully meets the demands of busy mammography departments with high patient throughputs, such as screening units. Four control panels placed in strategic locations on the unit make it possible to control manual and automatic movements from any position.
Positioning with GIOTTO IMAGEL is more comfortable and more flexible than positioning with any other mammography unit. You can use the conventional mode, positioning the patient from the side. or the face-to-face positioning: you might find it faster and more effective. Use one or the other depending on the patient’s anatomy: the aim is to optimize quickly and efficiently the quality of the result.
The human body is 3D and so is GIOTTO movements! The circle gantry provides the most achievable flexibility in suiting any woman´s anatomy. Women in wheelchairs take advantage of this unique characteristic: Giotto inclines towards the patient for easier exam positioning.
The inclined gantry of GIOTTO IMAGEL means more comfort for the patient as they lean into the bucky. This position allows the pectoral muscle to be relaxed and up to 2 cm more breast tissue can be compressed and visualized, allowing more breast tissue to be visualized for diagnosis.
GIOTTO IMAGEL is not provided with handles. Gripping on handles causes pectoral muscle contraction which in turn causes breast retraction: gravity reduces this effect.
GIOTTO IMAGEL comes with SCS (Sensitive Compression System) to decrease patient discomfort during breast compression. The computer selects the compression speed sensing the density of the breast.
Excellent Image Quality
Direct conversion technology a-Se detector
Tungsten anode & special filter for low dose levels
Raffaello: the most complete & intuitive user interface
At IMS we know that perfect image quality is a pre-requisite for the early detection of breast cancer.
Selenium2 is the second generation of a-Se technology and the digital mammography detector with the highest S/N ratio and has the best performance in terms of MTF and DQE. This is why Giotto provides the best image quality. Selenium 2 provides 85 micron pixel size chose as the best compromise between highest spatial resolution and lowest noise.
Raffaello™ is the user interface able to clearly show the smallest detail of breast tissue. The Advanced Tissue Equalization Software designed by our R&D, help the visualization and detection of subtle lesion even in dense glandular tissue. Raffaello is a sophisticated advanced reading software which is easy to use.
Radiation exposure dose to the patient and image quality are competing factors in mammography. IMS has been the first to introduce a special solution for FFDM: a combination of Tungsten anode tube with a Ag filter. The result is a significant decrease in the dose delivered to the patient.
Giotto Image 3DL + Stereotactic Biopsy = versatility
Biopsy with lateral, straight and inclined breast access
360° access to the breast
Prone biopsy & Mammography with the same detector: unique!
GIOTTO IMAGE 3DL is the only digital mammography system able to perform also stereotactic biopsy with the patient in a prone or upright or lateral position, using the same detector!
The conversion to prone unit is quick and easy. The stereotactic device “Biopsy Digit” simply slides in replacing the bucky. With a gentle movement the gantry tilts up to the horizontal position.
