XENOX S100 is the state-of-the-art in analogue breast imaging providing the best patient care at the most efficient cost.
It is a completely independent mammography unit allowing clinicians to obtain high quality images while expediting patient throughput.
It is suitable both for all the in depth studies of the breast as well as for “screening” programs carried out always with utmost accuracy.
Excellent imaging technology combined with a modern, ergonomic and winning design improves efficiency and elevates the standard of care.
A wide range of accessories
There are two different tables (18×24 or 24×30 cm format) with carbon fiber grid, complete of ID labels. Tables are perfectly interchangeable.
For each table size or for magnification technique are available appropriate magnetic collimation plates. Theshape of collimation plate is studied to avoid wrong insertion.
XENOX S100 can be provided with an automatic collimator. In this case, the mammography unit is able to detect the table size (18×24 or 24×30 cm) and to select automatically the proper collimation field.
FULLY MOTORIZED C-ARM
XENOX S100 is optionally supplied with motorized rotation of C-Arm (pre-selectable and fine adjustment angles).
A device for geometric magnification (1,5x or 2x factor) complete of cassette holder and without anti-scatter grid is optionally available. In order to reduce dose a carbon fiber free structure has been designed with automatically selected small focus once fitted.
ANTI-X PROTECTIVE BARRIERS
To obtain the maximum protection against stray radiation are optionally available two different kinds of stand-alone anti-X protective barriers.
The XENOX S100 with ISO-Centric C-Arm allows all breast projections without moving the patient and without adjusting height of the-Arm. The iso-centric rotation eliminates the-Arm height adjustment when doing Cranio-Caudal and lateral projections. XENOX S100 is upgradeable with stereotactic biopsy device ISO-Centric 3D.
The ISO-Centric 3D device represents a reliable add-on solution for performing stereotactic biopsies supporting film-screen or digital cassette. An easy and quick move upgrades the XENOX S100 to stereotactic mode providing a comfortable working space between the tube head and the biopsy device. The motorized +/-15° rotation of the ISO-Centric C-Arm assures accurate tube shift activated by means of dedicated push buttons. Lesions can be reached also in difficult positions with great precision in targeting, placing the C-Arm at the most appropriate inclination/height
“INTELIGENT COMP” COMPRESSION SYSTEM
The cutting-edge “INTELIGENT COMP” compression system, both motorized and manual, has been designed to guarantee optimal breast compression with minimal patient discomfort.
In the case of motorized compression, driven by the pair of foot-controls, the exclusive microprocessor-controlled FTSE (Function of Tissue Strength Evaluation) automatically adjusts the optimal force to apply based on the specific density of the breast to be examined. The operator can also perform a manual compression with precise adjustment using two rotary controls located on C-arm.
Displays located above the rotary controls allow viewing the set compression force and that actually applied, and the thickness of the compressed breast. This data is also shown on the control panel of the mammography unit and optionally on an auxiliary display placed frontally on the bottom of the unit.
The “INTELIGENT COMP” system is equipped with a triple protection device (electronic, electromechanical, mechanical) on the maximum compression force ensuring complete patient safety.
Really innovative is the XENOX S100’s intelligent and microprocessor controlled automatic exposure device enhanced by the “ULTIMATE” software. This standard feature makes the mammography system’s calibration incredibly rapid and simple (CR included). O.D. linearity exceeds QA protocols. Film and CR operations are also guaranteed by means of special AEC characteristics.
A LCD graphic display shows exposure parameters, alarm messages and many other data like the Average Glandular Dose (AGD) calculated after each exposure and the HU level of tube assembly.
TUBES AND FILTERS
The XENOX S100 is supplied with a X-Ray tube with Molybdenum anode and Molybdenum filter.
Different X-Ray tubes can be chosen:
- With biangular anode (10°/16°)
- High speed tube (9.000 rpm)
- With bimetallic anode (Mo/W)
As option is available an automatic filter Rhodium/Molybdenum to obtain a superior penetration of dense breast tissue
