Mammography & Tomosynthesis

Mammography & Tomosynthesis

Mammography and 3D mammography (also known as tomosynthesis) is a specific type of X-ray imaging that uses a low dose X-ray specially designed for creating detailed images of the breast known as mammograms. Mammography is used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women without signs or symptoms of breast disease or to diagnose breast disease in women with symptoms such as a lump, pain, or discharge.
Varex Imaging X-ray tubes have been used to complete about a billion mammograms. Our tubes are designed for high contrast, consistent radiation emission, and quiet operation. Today we are supporting an advance in digital mammography with a new tube that uses less radiation to show abnormalities in the breast with greater clarity and depth than ever.
Varex Imaging partners with leading OEMs to provide X-ray tubes designed to produce high contrast and lower radiation. Our newer digital X-ray tubes can be used with standard three-inch inserts and feature fan or liquid-cooled housing for higher heat dissipation rates.
Our mammography X-ray detectors were designed for full-field digital mammography (FFDM). These panels have compact, more comfortable designs that incorporate a narrower edge, enabling radiologists to acquire highly detailed images close to the chest wall quickly. In addition to more compact designs, our X-Ray detectors are low dose and feature high-frequency detector quantum efficiency (DQE) for excellent image quality.
For specialized breast imaging software, Varex Imaging offers MeVis software through MeVis Medical Solutions AG. MeVis software analyzes and presents images from mammography screening to support an earlier, faster, and more reliable diagnosis.
To complete your mammography and tomosynthesis system, Varex Imaging also offers high voltage connectors.
