SYMA DIGITAL X-RAY MAMMOGRAPHY SYSTEM
THE DIGITAL MAMMOGRAFIC X-RAY COMPLEX SYSTEM SYMA IS INTENDED FOR SCREENING AND DIAGNOSTIC MAMMAL GLAND EXAMINATIONS.
The Digital Mammografic X-ray Complex System SYMA is a state-of-the art medical facility for mammal gland radio imaging by aid of PC-controlled target registration methods. This enables a full scope of advanced medicine features of detecting, processing, archiving, printing and feeding mammograms to end-users.
The Complex System is built on basis of novel achievements in spheres of micro-electronics, digital image-acquisiting and processing technologies. The digital DR-type X-ray Image Detector features high-level resolution power and enables high-quality roentgenography-imaging to match any kind of mammology examinations.
The Digital Mammografic X-ray Complex System SYMA is designed for use in medico-prophylactic clinics/centers for screening and diagnostic examinations of patients, aimed at early identification of mammary gland threats.
Functionally, the Complex System enables all kinds of screening and diagnostic breast examinations in sphere of mammology.
The Complex System enables realization of the following functions:
- establishing Patients’ Personal Archive in PC-Database;
- breast positioning and mammal gland compression in examination ready projection, using an automated compression device;
- X-raying the mammal gland at preset physico-technical exposure parameters, with automatic or manual means of exposure-time setting control;
- acquisiting the X-ray mammal gland imaging on PC-display, and record downloading it into the PC-database;
- upgrading the diagnostic informativeness of radiography images, using digital processing methods (e.g., brightness and contrast correction, filtration, zoom, screen magnifier application, determining geometrical parameters, positive / negative conversion, etc.);
- examinations relevant data downloading into the PC-database;
- printing out paper copies of Medical Reports with Doctor’s conclusions;
- printing out Roentgen images on X-rays-films using laboratory Inkjet printer;
- copying files of medical examination outcomes on laser-, compact-, flash- etc. media;
- feeding the DICOM formatted images to local network of a health care facility;
- procedures are practiced either in diagnostic mode (checking up to 20 patients per shift), or up to 40 patients per shift at screening examinations.
