La compression devient sur mesures

Les seins ont des tailles différentes. Évidemment, un sein de petite taille nécessite moins de force de compression qu’un sein plus gros. Pourquoi alors, les directives actuelles conseillent-elles de normaliser la compression selon la force et non la pression?

 

Notre technologie brevetée prend en compte taille et les propriétés des tissus mammaires. Grace à ces informations, la pression est calculée et permet l’optimisation de la compression de chaque sein individuellement. La plaque Sensitive Sigma™ Paddle assure qu'aucune pression excessive n’est appliquée sur la poitrine, ce qui évite des douleurs extrême et permet une procédure plus prévisible, années après années.

Schematic drawing Sensitive Sigma™ Paddle

The Sensitive Sigma™ Paddle is used on a mammography system for taking breast X-rays and redefines the traditional approach. It has been designed to optimize breast compression around 75mmHg pressure. Every technological element, from the X-ray transparent foil to multiple sensors and the controller, has been designed to measure each breast individually. This data is processed instantly and the integrated LED lights serve as real time indicators when the Sensitive Sigma™ Paddle is lowered onto the breast. It provides the lab assistants a clear guidance when sufficient pressure has been applied. It avoids extreme pressures and prevents extreme pain, thus making the procedure more predictable. The Sensitive Sigma™ Paddle is not just better, simpler, and more convenient for the women. It sets a whole new standard.

Med-Tech Award 2014Think 75mmHg Compression

How does the Sensitive Sigma™ Paddle work?

  • The mammography technologists positions the breast and starts the compression;
  • During compression, the real-time pressure value is calculated and visualized using the integrated LED lights;
  • At the start of the procedure, without breast compression, only the first LED will light up;
  • As pressure increases, additional LED’s will light up;
  • When reaching the target pressure range the sixth LED (counted from the left) will light up;
  • The target pressure range is an indication of the optimal compression for this breast in this position;
