Percée innovante en mammographie issue recherches scientifiques approfondies.

Nous sommes résolus à améliorer la mammographie.

 

Dans le monde, environ 150 millions de mammographies sont effectués chaque année. La compression du sein est nécessaire en mammographie pour optimiser la qualité d'image et réduire au minimum la dose de rayonnement absorbée. Cependant, la compression mécanique du sein durant la mammographie provoque souvent inconfort et douleur et dissuade ainsi certaines femmes de la mammographie de dépistage.


Notre technologie brevetée issue recherches scientifiques approfondies permet une compression hautement reproductible sans inconfort inutile. Un examen optimisé contribue à la détection précoce de possible cancer et permet ainsi de sauver des vies.

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.
