Evaluation: GE Senographe Pristina Mammography System with Tomosynthesis

March 11, 2020 | Evaluations & Guidance

Preview

  • The Senographe Pristina provides 2-D and 3-D images of the breast for screening or diagnosis of breast cancer. In tomosynthesis (3-D) mode, the system generates a series of 2-D images through the breast.
  • Major device components and software features:
    • Motorized gantry:
      • The swivel range is -180° to +180°
      • The height adjustment is 65 to 150 cm (26 to 59 in)
    • X-ray tube and generator:
      • Source-to-image (detector) distance (SID): 66 cm (26 in)
      • kV range: 22 to 49 kV in 1 kV increments
      • Power output: 5 kW
      • Target/filter options:
        • Target: Molybdenum (Mo) or rhodium (Rh)
        • Filter: Molybdenum (Mo) or silver (Ag)
      • X-ray tube motion and angular range for tomosynthesis: Step and shoot, 25°
      • Number of projections for tomosynthesis: 9
    • Digital detector:
      • Detector size: 24 × 29 cm (9.4 × 11.4 in)
      • Pixel size: 100 microns
    • Acquisition workstation and control console:
      • User interface and image display: 1 MP, 48 cm (19 in) LCD display
      • Image display (optional): 3 MP, 54 cm (21.2 in) color display
      • Rotating arm for monitor access
      • Automatic reconstruction of the images using iterative ASiRDBT
      • Synthesized 2-D view (V-Preview) to reduce the total radiation dose received by patients
      • Patient-assisted compression device (handheld remote control) to ease acceptance of the compression
    • Optional device components and software features: (1)...
