“ edication to Computed Tomography D has driven my professional life for more than 30 years. I am very proud that AB-CT is fully reflecting this edication — d last but not least for the benefit of our customers and patients.” Prof. Dr. Dr. med. h.c. mult. WILLI KALENDER, Ph. D. Founder and Scientific Advisor EMPOWERING RADIOLOGISTS Even with high-tech devices and skilled, qualified radiologists, the early and accurate diagnosis of breast cancer remains challenging. Conventional diagnosis methods, while well-established, are not always reliable. 3D imaging with high isotropic resolution, on...

RESPECTING PATIENTS SUSPICIOUS REGIONAL MICROCALCIFICATIONS It’s not just the unrivalled technology nu:view impresses with – our dedicated breast CT has also been developed with the highest level of patient comfort in mind. During the image acquisition process, the patient lies prone on the scanner table with the breast to be examined conveniently placed into the opening. No compression is applied, making the process pain-free and helping that little extra for patients to feel reassured in a situation that may be perceived as highly distressing. The scan parameters are adjustable to...

SILICONE IMPLANT LESION “I cannot emphasize enough the importance of this method being completely compression-free. Some women had missed their breast checks for years because they feared compression. nu:view really solves their dilemma. And with high resolution, real 3D images at dose levels comparable to mammography, us radiologists clearly benefit from breast CT as well. The multiplanar pictures decrease the number of recalls caused by superimposed structures.“ EARLY DETECTION Since women can choose breast CT instead of screening mammography at the University Hospital Zurich (USZ),...

FUNCTIONAL IMAGING Previous mammography had depicted a single mass only. On sonography, the round, circumscribed lesion had cystic and solid components; several other suspicious lesions were also detected. Breast CT was performed to confirm multicentric breast cancer. 2 Pre-contrast: Round mass lesion with hypodense (necrotic/liquid) centre. Pre-contrast images are suspicious for more than one lesion. Post-contrast: The palpable mass enhances the contrast material inhomogeneously. Several other contrast enhancing masses with irregular and smooth margins in more than one quadrant of the...
