Advanced Breast CT

nu: view – discover true isotropic 3D resolution

Nu:view is a dedicated breast CT scanner for diagnostic X-ray imaging with short scan times, excellent low-contrast resolution and high spatial resolution. X-ray tube and X-ray detector were specifically designed for breast CT scanning and utilizes stateof-the-art photon-counting technology.

Beside the X-ray components also the image reconstruction software is optimized for highest image quality and guarantees best dose usage. Threedimensional superposition-free images are generated to allow detectability of calcifications and to provide excellent soft-tissue differentiation. The system is designed for high patient comfort without breast compression.

Nu:view – a disruptive technology in the era of breast imaging

−Full 3D images of the breast without superposition
−Good soft-tissue differentiation
−Low patient dose levels in the range of diagnostic mammograms
−Accurate tissue density assessment
−Improved patient comfort without breast compression
