Mammography Roadshow

MAMMOMAT Revelation - Siemens Healthineers

In collaboration with Lamboo Mobile Medical, Siemens Healthineers showcases the MAMMOMAT Revelation in a mobile mammography roadshow taking the system across the United Kingdom and Ireland throughout 2020. Beginning at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, the tour has already stopped at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital in addition to the Siemens Healthineers UK Headquarters for customer visits from across the South East.

Mammographers and radiologists are able to view the latest innovations in mammography from Siemens Healthineers, with product specialists on hand to demonstrate the capabilities of the MAMMOMAT Revelation in a mobile unit. Accredited by the NHS Breast Screening programme, the MAMMOMAT Revelation utilises tomosynthesis for superior cancer detection but is designed with the user in mind - featuring Insight 2D to ease the transition from FFDM.

The MAMMOMAT Revelation is the flagship mammography system from Siemens Healthineers, equipped with innovative new technologies for superior cancer detection. With unique 50° Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis, the MAMMOMAT Revelation provides the highest depth resolution1 and mass detectability for detailed imaging and confident diagnoses2. Insight 2D technology allows fast comparison whilst minimising patient dose, and Insight BD provides objective, volumetric classification of breast density.

“For screening to be successful, the technology used within mammography has to continually evolve,” states Suzanne Smith, Mammography Product Specialist at Siemens Healthineers GB&I. “It’s important that the next generation of women’s healthcare systems make patients feel as comfortable and calm as possible. The MAMMOMAT Revelation features soft compression paddles, and allows for tomosynthesis, stereotactic biopsy, specimen imaging and breast density measurement all on one machine. The system can reduce the amount of discomfort a patient might experience during a mammogram, lower the radiation dose to the breast tissue, and increase the diagnostic accuracy of the images acquired.”
