Overview

Reshape the mammography experience with comfort, confidence and clarity

At GE Healthcare, we believe it’s time to improve the entire mammography experience.
We partnered with radiologists, technologists and patients to create a mammography platform that is designed to each of their needs

  • Comfort for Patients: A mammography system that is more inviting and more comfortable resulting in a better overall exam experience
  • Confidence for Technologists: A new ergonomic design to reduce physical strain with dedicated functionalities for easier patient positioning
  • Clarity for Radiologists: Superior diagnostic accuracy at the lowest patient dose available1

Patients

An attractive and well-designed gantry

Senographe Pristina was designed to ease anxiety when the patient enters the exam room.

  • 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.

You’ll need to experience it to truly realise what it can do for you.


Rethinking patient comfort

Senographe Pristina helps ensure that patients are comfortable during their exam.

  • The soft armrests have replaced the typical hand grips. So rather than tensing muscles to hold a hand grip, patients can rest their arm comfortably on the arm rest and relax their muscles, which can simplify compression and image acquisition.

The gentle, rounded corners of the bucky may reduce anxiety and discomfort for patients as well.






Technologists

Patient comfort easing positioning

Anxious patients are more prone to moving and contracting muscles, creating challenges for technologists to position them appropriately. By making patients more comfortable during the exam, technologists can focus on more suitable positioning, enabling a faster and smoother experience for both the patient and the technologist.


A new design to avoid physical strain

Making it easy for technologists to position patients is critical to improving the overall mammography experience for both patients and technologists.
  
The Senographe Pristina was designed with this in mind.

  • The back space is large enough to allow technologists to position patients while facing them.
  • The tube head can be moved to a parked position away from the technologist's head to ease medio lateral oblique (MLO).

Reinventing the mammography experience to make the technologist’s job easier

  • The console and gantry are ready to use within a few minutes after startup.
  • The 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, minimises the learning curve.



Radiologists

Pristine images for accurate diagnoses

Senographe Pristina sets the bar high for diagnosis confidence and performance, leveraging the Senographe family’s widely recognised 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.1
The 3D acquisition protocol is made of a 3D CC and a 3D MLO. The diagnostic set will include the 2D synthetised views of each acquisition

Senographe PristinaTM 3D

The Senographe Pristina 3D platform is upgradeable to advanced applications.
