The new mammography and tomosynthesis system from Siemens Healthineers: MAMMOMAT B.brilliant.

MAMMOMAT B.brilliantExclude the maybes.

There shouldn't be anything inconclusive about breast cancer screening – and yet that's the reality for too many women. We think that it’s time to change that. Meet MAMMOMAT B.brilliant, a whole new mammography system that brings you the next generation of 3D mammography. Experience:

  • PlatinumTomo, a completely new breed of tomosynthesis image acquisition technology
  • 50° Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis scan time of just 5 seconds2,3
  • Excellent in-plane resolution, best in-depth resolution1, and customizable image impression
  • A completely new system design that's focused entirely on the patient and the radiographer


MAMMOMAT B.brilliant performs a 50° Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis scan.


A completely new breed of tomosynthesis image acquisition

50° Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis 
The highest depth resolution and mass detectability in mammography.2

Unique flying focal spot technology 

  • Excellent in-plane resolution and acquisition speed
  • Perform a 50° Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis scan time in just 5 seconds2,3

Cutting-edge detector 
Faster read-out time for higher image acquisition speed

PREMIA image reconstruction 
Improved image reconstruction framework

  • Reduce artifacts and enhance visibility of calcifications and lesions
  • Comfortable transition from 2D and narrow-angle systems, thanks to customizable image impressions
  • Boost synthetic mammogram sharpness, thanks to AI-powered noise reduction

Meet PlatinumTomo

MAMMOMAT B.brilliant has a screen at eye level that displays all the relevant information: workflow steps, compression, system movement, and more.

ComfortGuide Display 

More transparent processes during the examination

Patient and workflow information are always in sight on a screen at eye level – including next workflow steps, information on compression and system movement, breast thickness, and more.

  • All patient information at hand
  • Workflows displayed where you need them
  • Receive information on the current and upcoming workflow steps

MAMMOMAT B.brilliant's tube unit moves independent of the bucky table, allowing the MTA easy access to the patient during positioning.


Independent movement, easy patient access

ComfortMove aims to significantly reduce physical strain on radiographers caused by mammography examinations. Thanks to independent movement of the tube unit from the table, you can easily access your patient during the MLO positioning process – without having to bend under the tube unit. An additional work light and positioning laser provide even more support for accurate positioning.

  • Easier and optimized patient positioning
  • More freedom of movement for radiographers and patients
  • Radiographers may avoid physical strain
The patient rests her head on the MAMMOMAT B.brilliant's transparent face shield during the scan.

Fixed face shield and a short scan time

Create more stability and comfort for patients

The transparent face shield lets your patients rest their headcomfortably during scans. And thanks to our scan time of no more than 5 seconds, patients get scanned extremely quickly.2,3

  • Enhance patient comfort during tomosynthesis
  • Get optimal images thanks to stabilized patient positioning
  • Increase workflow speed
