Fischer Medical Technologies, based in Broomfield, Colo., has been named U.S. distributor of the Giotto full-field digital mammography (FFDM) system from IMS Italy.
Giotto’s design makes it possible for a single room to support both upright mammography as well as prone stereotactic biopsy. A tilting gantry allows more breast tissue to be included in the imaging field. It also enables mammogram procedures to be done face-to-face and allows positioning of disabled patients.
The FDA gave 510(k) clearance for the Giotto FFDM system in November 2011.
