Siemens to Demo MammoTest’s Diagnostic Precision at RSNA

The MammoTest is Siemens fully digital prone table biopsy system with a breast aperture of 11 inches. At this year's RSNA, Siemens will show how MammoTest is suited for visualizing very small microcalcifications and diagnosing masses and suspicious lesions, optimal contrast and spatial resolution for easy visualization of entire breast anatomy. Its unique polar coordinate system offers unobstructed view to needle/lesion with precise positioning (with +/- 1mm targeting accuracy), and "Target on Scout" capability (due to the exclusive angled-needle approach, a straight-on (0°) Scout View can be used for targeting and confirming needle tip location).

With MammoTest, the patient always rests in a more comfortable prone position. The large aperture lets the breast and axilla fall away from the chest, offering unobstructed access to the region of interest. This more comfortable patient positioning and physician-patient eye contact during the procedure makes it more relaxing for the patient. For the user, the MammoTest can be used with a large variety of needles and wire localization devices. The special table design together with a rotating gantry as well as the lateral arm offer true all-angles and fully 360° patient and lesion access. The fully DICOM compatible MammoTest helps increase workflow efficiency for radiology departments in any setting.
