Tomosynthesis: Breast biopsy
The GIOTTO TOMO also enables stereotactic biopsies to be performed with absolute precision (maximum deviation from the target on the three axes ≤ 0.5mm).
The biopsy is totally automatic: the needle guide is motor driven in the three directions x, y and z and the extremely sophisticated software guides the user step by step so as to safely obtain a precise result.
The system is capable of using any vacuum-assisted core biopsy device or other simpler devices, such as FNA, without any limits. Access to the breast is perpendicular, inclined 6° or lateral depending on the support selected for each specific case.
The Giotto Tomo represents a platform that is growing and evolving toward other methods and techniques which IMS will soon be launching on the market.The Giotto Tomo is thus already configured for:
- CEDM or angio-mammography.
- Synthetic 2D images derived from the data acquired with the tomosynthesis scans.
- Tomosynthesis-guided biopsy. It uses tomosynthesis images to identify the target for taking biopsy samples. It is an alternative to stereotactic biopsy.
