GE SenoClaire breast tomosynthesis is a three-dimensional imaging technology that uses a low-dose short X-ray sweep around the compressed breast with only nine exposures. GE SenoClaire‘s imaging technique is designed to separate the tissues and to reduce the overlapping of structures, which represents a limiting factor in standard 2D mammography.
The GE SenoClaire detector delivers high DQE at a low dose for visualizing microcalcifications without binning, a process that regroups pixels for faster readout speeds and improved signal-to-noise ratios, but with reduced image quality.
- Step-and-shoot tube motion preserves microcalcification sharpness and avoids image blur since the tube makes a complete stop for each of the nine exposures.
- An anti-scatter solution designed for tomosynthesis, the GE SenoClaire grid in 3D reduces scattered radiation while preserving dose and performance.
- GE SenoClaire uses ASiRDBT, a calcification artifact correction iterative reconstruction algorithm that delivers off-plane images much improved in terms of both in-plane and out-of-plane artifacts versus the traditional Filtered Back Projection (FBP) algorithm.
Due to its low dose and non-inferior clinical accuracy2, GE SenoClaire has the potential to replace digital mammography exams in screening to detect breast cancer.
GE SenoClaire images are compatible with major PACS providers (with local variability), allowing integration into your environment and helping you make optimal use of your investment. With the IDI MammoWorkstation, radiologists can smoothly navigate through the DBT dataset using dedicated 2D/3D hanging protocols and specific ergonomic features.
