Automatic compression reduction control (Comfort Comp)
This function will reduce the compression pressure within a range (within + 3 mm) in which the thickness of the breast does not change after normal breast compression is completed for the purpose of alleviating the patient's pain. For breast compression, there is a phenomenon (hysteresis*1) where the thickness of the breast becomes thinner during decompression after compression than during compression even with the same pressure. By utilizing this phenomenon, it is possible to automatically decompress it so that the breast condition remains almost the same even if the duration of maximum compression pressure is reduced.
An Interview with a Comfort Comp Developer :
Fit Sweet Paddle
This type of compression paddle fits to the shape of the breast, allowing pressure to be evenly applied while holding the breast securely and ensuring the breast tissue is adequately separated. Models with the lateral shift function are also available in the lineup.
Shift Compression Paddle
This small compression paddle can be positioned in the middle, right or left side of the detector at any time of examination according to the positioning of the patient.
When this compression paddle is used with 18524 cm radiation field, the radiation field remains in the center for the CC position, while shifting to the upper portion of the detector when the C-arm is rotated to a MLO or ML position.
