Breast MRI Coil Comes in Two Configurations


November 22, 2010 – A new breast MRI coil comes in two configurations: an award-winning patient stretcher, and a tabletop configuration leveraging the same open access features of the patient stretcher. The Sentinelle Breast MRI coil, by Hologic, along with its Variable Coil Geometry feature allows for the diagnostic coils and biopsy grid positioning to be customized to each patient.

Both patient support configurations are designed to provide greater access for positioning and intervention, optimal patient comfort and improved workflow.

The Sentinelle Aegis Breast imaging and interventional software is a dedicated plug-in for the Aegis platform software. It offers powerful real time 4-D image processing, combining speed, flexibility and dedicated breast MRI algorithms.

Built on the Aegis software platform, the Sentinelle Navigation system offers a multi-modality approach to correlated image viewing and device guidance. The system simultaneously displays real time ultrasound images with corresponding images from previously acquired 3-D DICOM datasets. Leveraging the increased sensitivity and specificity of MRI, CT or PET images with ultrasound has the potential to yield more dependable results.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
