“GIOTTO IMAGE” A Revolution in Mammography
Introducing the Advanced Breast Care System “Giotto Image”.
“Giotto Image” is truly the only mammography system on the market that breaks the mold of the old style mammography units that are physically demanding for the technologist and uncomfortable for the patient. “Giotto Image” is the only system that offers the following benefits:
Gravity Assisted Positioning
Face to Face Positioning Capabilities
Less Physical Demands on the Technologist
Relaxed Breast Tissue Allowing More Tissue on the Film
Patient Comfort Due To Relaxed Breast Tissue
Greater and more Comfortable Compression due to relaxation benefit
Better Patient Experience due to Face to Face Contact
Easier Positioning by Technologist due to ability to see what she is doing
More cost effective
“Giotto Image” is the only system on the market that transforms into a Digital PRONE and/or Upright Stereo System in minutes. Requiring no dedicated Stereo room.
The “Giotto Image” technology has a patented Tilting Circular Gantry design offering Multiple Approach Positioning capabilities. Uniquely, the only mammography system, in the world, developed specifically to allow face to face positioning as well as the traditional side stance. The new technique is easier for the technologist creating a more pleasant work environment, less stress for the patient due to the face to face contact, with the added benefit of gravity, from the Tilting Gantry, providing greater compression, more tissue on the film while being more comfortable for the patient. The patient relaxes as she leans into the machine. The breast is relaxed, pendant and comfortably compressed.
The ability of the Technologist to actually visualize the breast as she is positioning makes her job easier and simpler with the added advantage of knowing she has all the breast tissue before the exposure is made. Much less bending and stooping is done with the frontal positioning technique providing far less fatigue, back pain and repetitive motion injuries.
Progressive Medical is dedicated to advancing breast care by bringing to market a product that addresses the real needs of the technologist, patient, radiologist and administrator. “Giotto Image” Mammography goes beyond image quality to a generation of ergonomic equipment less painful in every aspect of mammography:
Technologist – Simpler positioning-less physically demanding.
Patient – Face to face contact with less painful compression.
Radiologist – More breast tissue visualized by relaxed pendant positioning.
Administrator – Less equipment cost, no dedicated room for stereo required.
