FEATURES
  • Identify challenging lesions with a direct-conversion selenium detector and a 14.3 cm x 11.7 cm field of view that is more than 6.5 times larger than existing dedicated prone biopsy systems2 Broaden your view of targeted tissue with X-ray translucent paddles.
  • Streamlined user experience based on the software found in our Selenia® Dimensions® system.
  • Speed up procedures with an automated tube head that sweeps over the breast to acquire all necessary images with a single press of a button.
  • One-click-targeting when using Hologic 3D™ Breast Biopsy.
  • Get 360° total access to the breast to accommodate most lesion locations – with bidirectional patient positioning and 180° C-arm rotation.
  • Intuitive touchscreen Biopsy Control Module with 3-dimensional navigation aids that clearly displays the position of the biopsy device to guide the way during procedures.
  • Automate calculations – biopsy needle parameters are programmed into the system to display safety margins and relevant distance in real-time.
  • Exclusive fully integrated lateral needle approach. Go from standard to lateral needle approach in seconds even without releasing the patient from compression to save time and gain easy access to challenging lesions. No additional attachments required.
  • Arm-through procedure accessories including arm-rest and large 11 x 10.5 in table aperture make it fast and easy to comfortably position a patient and access challenging axillary lesions.
  • Maximum comfort package. Our ergonomically engineered cushions provide custom, targeted pressure-point support for most body types to improve the patient experience.
  • Advanced biopsy Acquisition Workstation with electronic height adjustment to help improve system ergonomics.
