Melody IIID TS is the version that operates with tomosynthesis technology, an innovative technique that exceeds the limits of conventional mammography: with a brief scan of the breast, it acquires a sequence of images of thin anatomical sections (slices) obtained from different projection angles, which are processed by advanced
algorithms able to reconstruct the volume examined. This technology allows distinguishing with greater clarity and detail suspect anatomical structures that are difficult to identify with conventional mammography because of the overlap of the various surrounding tissues.
Tomosynthesis in Melody IIID TS now has benchmark performance: the scanning angle has been widened to 50° allowing maximum accuracy in identifying the position of low-contrast lesions, while the acquisition times in all three angles have almost been halved reducing aberrations due to micro-movements of the patient to a minimum. These results, associated with the use of an anti-scatter grid and a fast and precise reconstruction algorithm, allow obtaining exceptional image quality with better evidence of anatomical detail and possible lesions.
The new Melody IIID TS is also offered with an Amorphous Silicon panel thus becoming the point of entry for those that want a system equipped with tomosynthesis at moderate cost. Alternatively, like for Melody IIID, it can be supplied with an Amorphous Selenium panel, also in the ‘Fast’ variant capable of exceptional image acquisition speed. Melody IIID TS, if coupled to the dedicated module, allows performing tomo-guided biopsy as well.
The Melody III series has a wide range of options and accessories, which allow the user to obtain the most appropriate configuration for his needs, such as the multifunctional pedal board or the anti-x protection bulkhead, which can be selected when configuring the equipment or purchased later.
It is possible to choose from a complete range of flat and cantilever compressors of various sizes and formats.
