OAKVILLE, Ont. | Siemens Healthineers is pleased to announce MAMMOMAT B.brilliant, the company's first completely redesigned mammography platform in more than a decade, has received Health Canada licensing. This innovative system with wide-angle tomosynthesis offers significant advancements in image quality, user ergonomics, and patient comfort level.

“We are excited to bring MAMMOMAT B.brilliant to Canada to offer more accurate, faster and conclusive breast cancer screenings for women to exclude the maybes,” says Peter Vidic, X-ray Business Line Manager at Siemens Healthineers, Canada “Experience a completely new system design that is focused entirely on the patient and the mammographer,” he added.

Revolutionary mammography imaging technology

PlatinumTomo, the new 3D technology will acquire the tomosynthesis volume at the same angular range of 50°—the widest angle on the market—as the company’s current system, the MAMMOMAT Revelation, for a high level of depth resolution and tissue separation. The 3D portion will feature completely new acquisition technology, with a new detector and a new X-ray tube design based on the premium z-sharp (flying focal spot) technology found on the company’s computed tomography scanners. The flying focal spot technology is designed to allow for continuous tube motion, while holding the focal spot size effectively stable. UltraHD reconstruction technology will provide customizable image impression as well as a new form of synthetic 2D and 3D imaging.

Enhanced patient comfort and user experience with design around the individual woman

MAMMOMAT B.brilliant, with a scan time of around five seconds, is the fastest wide-angle tomosynthesis on the market, creating a 3D image with high-depth resolution in the shortest time possible. It offers a 35% faster acquisition speed compared to other devices, making the examination more comfortable for patients. The ComfortPackage, which is standard on the system, includes an ergonomic hand grip and an optimized, stationary face shield that allows the patient to lean into the system during image acquisition for greater stability and ease of positioning. These new features are combined with a redesigned ambient light display, personalized soft breast compression, and curved breast compression paddles. These features can not only reduce patient discomfort but also improve breast positioning and enable more consistent image quality.
