GE Healthcare launches new patient-assisted mammography system

13th September 2017

GE Healthcare has announced the US launch of a new mammography device that gives patients greater control over the process.

Senographe Pristina Dueta is an innovative remote control that works with the company's new Senographe Pristina mammography system, allowing women to manage their own compression during the exam.

Typically, the technologist performing the exam compresses the patient's breast, often causing discomfort, but this new method gives patients more control over the compression paddle, allowing them to minimise the pain and discomfort often associated with the process.

Agnes Berzsenyi, president and chief executive officer of GE Healthcare's women's health division, said: "GE Healthcare has transformed mammography with the creation of patient-assisted compression to decrease pain associated with the exam, improve patient experience and increase outcomes for breast cancer screening which we know saves lives."

This augments the existing benefits of the Senographe Pristina system, which has been totally redesigned to offer rounded edges and a thinner image detector to create a more pleasant experience for women.
