Senographe Pristina™ integrated 3D mammography provides an exceptionally sharp and detailed picture for breast cancer detection and diagnosis at the same radiation dose as standard 2D mammography.

Comfort for Patients

The new inviting gantry promotes a sense of calm, with elegant lighting and gentle, rounded shapes. A soft-curved surface invites patients into a space of comfort and support.
Soft armrests have replaced the typical hand grips. So rather than tensing muscles to hold a hand grip, patients rest their arm comfortably on the arm rest, which helps relax muscles, simplifying compression and image acquisition.

Confidence for Technologists

When patients are more comfortable during a breast exam, technologists can focus on more suitable positioning, enabling a faster and smoother experience for both patient and technologist.

  • The console and gantry are ready to use within minutes after startup.
  • Image contrast can be modified when needed, among six levels available, to accommodate user preferences.
  • The acquisition console, well-aligned with other GE Healthcare products, minimizes the learning curve.

Clarity for radiologists

Senographe Pristina sets the bar high for diagnostic confidence and performance, leveraging the Senographe family’s widely recognized image quality.

GE Digital Breast Tomosynthesis delivers superior diagnostic accuracy at the same dose as 2D FFDM, the lowest patient dose of all FDA approved DBT systems.

3D Mammography Benefits

  • Finds 40 percent more invasive cancers than 2D mammography alone
  • Reduces your rate for follow up image call backs by 20 to 40 percent
  • May reduce the rate of unnecessary breast biopsies

3D Mammography

3D mammography provides an exceptionally sharp and detailed picture for breast cancer detection and diagnosis at the same radiation dose as standard 2D mammography.

3D Mammography™ is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection that can be done in conjunction with a traditional 2D digital mammogram.

During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple breast images. Then, a computer produces a 3D image of your breast tissue in one millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. They can scroll through images of your entire breast like pages of a book.

The additional 3D images make it possible for a radiologist to gain a better understanding of your breast tissue during screening and the confidence to reduce the need for follow-up imaging.

With conventional digital mammography, the radiologist is viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in one flat image. Sometimes breast tissue can overlap, giving the illusion of normal breast tissue looking like an abnormal area.

By looking at the breast tissue in one millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more confident assessment.1 In this way, 3D Mammography™ finds cancers missed with conventional 2D mammography. It also means there is less chance your doctor will call you back later for a “second look,” because now they can see breast tissue more clearly.

A screening mammogram is your annual mammogram that is done every year. Sometimes the radiologist may ask you to come back for follow-up images, which is called a diagnostic mammogram, to rule out an unclear area in the breast or if there is a breast complaint that needs to be evaluated.
3D Mammography™ complements standard 2D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required, and it only takes a few more seconds longer for each view.
Very low X-ray energy is used during the exam, just about the same amount as a traditional mammogram done on film.

It is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram.

Please call 855-MY-MAMMO to schedule your annual screening mammogram appointment.
