Wir möchten die Mammographie immer weiter verbessern

 

Weltweit werden jährlich etwa 150 Millionen Mammographie-Untersuchungen durchgeführt. Um die beste Bildqualität mit der niedrigsten Strahlungsmenge zu erhalten, muss die Brust komprimiert werden.


Wir haben eine patentierte Technologie für ein problemlos reproduzierbares Verfahren ohne unnötige Unannehmlichkeiten entwickelt. Optimierte Brustuntersuchungsverfahren tragen zur Früherkennung von Krebs bei, was letztendlich Leben retten kann.

2019 - Breast compression and experienced pain during mammography by use of three different compression paddles
In this paper from the Norwegian screening program, they compared three different compression paddles. A fixed study paddle with pressure indication was compared to a conventional flex paddle and a conventional fixed paddle without pressure indication.Pain experience (NRS) was collected in 4,675 women. Between the flex paddle and the study paddle no significant difference was found (2.5), but between the conventional fixed paddle and the fixed study paddle with pressure indicator, a significant difference was found in favor of the pressure-based study paddle. Our conclusion is that the range of the pain relieving effects of pressure based compression depends on the historical way of working, which leads to already low pain scores. The combination of a flex paddle with pressure sensing, is very promising. On top of this, a pressure-based way of working goes beyond pain and discomfort. It also reduces variations, improves workflow and facilitates a better communication with the patient.
2018 - Clinical validation of a pressure-standardized compression mammography system
In a retrospective study, mammograms acquired using a pressure-standardized compression protocol were intra-individually compared with the prior mammograms using a force-standardized compression. Pressure-standardized compression provided a mean breast pressure that was almost independent on breast size. Additionally, the mean pressure was significantly lower and the number of over-compressions (>20 kPa) reduced significantly for the pressure-standardized compared to the force-standardized protocol, suggesting a reduction of patient discomfort and pain.
