ASPIRE Cristalle

ASPIRE Cristalle now with digital breast tomosynthesis

Enhanced workflow, exceptional images

ASPIRE Cristalle, Fujifilm’s newest digital mammography system, combines state-of-the-art, Hexagonal Close Pattern (HCP) image capture technology and intelligent image processing, optimizing contrast and dose based on breast density. The result is exceptional imaging, optimized contrast, low dose and fast acquisition time.

iCAD's mammography Computer Aided Detection (CAD) solution is now available on Fujifilm’s ASPIRE Cristalle full field digital mammography system.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT)

Radiologists using ASPIRE Cristalle with DBT will realize valuable, enhanced clinical efficacy compared to using full field digital mammography (FFDM) alone.

  • DBT acquires a series of low-dose images at different angles. The acquired images are reconstructed into a series of high-resolution slices displayed individually or dynamically in a cine mode.
  • The reconstructed tomographic images make it easier to identify lesions which might otherwise be difficult to visualize in traditional 2D mammogram images because of the presence of overlapping breast structures.
  • Superior diagnostic accuracy and superior (lower) recall rates for non-cancer cases are possible with ASPIRE Cristalle's DBT technology.

Hexagonal Close Pattern (HCP) Direct Conversion Technology

  • 50-micron image display
  • Reduced acquisition time — only 15 seconds
  • Hexagonal pixels distribute the electrical field more efficiently than traditional square pixels, to capture stronger signals with less noise
  • Resulting images have high DQE and MTF, producing brilliant image quality
  • Offers exceptionally sharp images, even at low dose

iAEC plus ISC: Optimized x-ray dose and contrast for each breast type

Fujifilm's proprietary technology makes it possible to lower dose while offering optimized contrast, even in dense breasts and implants.

  • Intelligent AEC (iAEC) "factors in" breast composition to calculate the optimal dose and exposure techniques for each examination. iAEC enables more accurate calculation of exposure parameters than is possible with conventional AEC systems.
  • iAEC can also greatly speed workflow for exams of implanted breasts by automatically calculating the optimal exposure.
  • Fujifilm's Image-based Spectrum Conversion (ISC) technology optimizes contrast in an image, offering the dose advantages of a tungsten target for all exposures and breast types.

Patented Comfort Paddle designed to improve patient comfort during mammograms

The unique Comfort Paddle allows pressure to be more evenly and gently distributed across the breast compared to conventional, flexible paddles.

  • Slotted paddle edge allows plate to flex to the contour of the breast
  • Bends from center of breast to thinner edges
  • Distributes pressure more evenly
  • Tilting paddle allows for more gradual and more even compression
  • Available in two sizes to accommodate different breast sizes: 18x24cm and 24x30cm
  • Available standard on ASPIRE Cristalle, optional on ASPIRE HD Plus

ASPIRE Cristalle Advances the State of the Art in Digital Mammography

Cristalle White PaperASPIRE Cristalle, Fujifilm’s third-generation full-field digital mammography (FFDM) system, now delivers optimum image quality at a very low patient dose. A new white paper, Technology Advances in Mammography: Dose Reduction and Image Quality, highlights the recent advances in FFDM technology employed in the ASPIRE Cristalle system.

Download the white paper to learn how:

  • ASPIRE Cristalle’s novel Hexagonal Close Pattern detector yields improved sensitivity compared to conventional detectors while reducing patient dose by approximately 20%.
  • Adaptive and analytical image processing automatically adjusts to each patient’s breast composition.
  • A quality-control package consisting of the 1 Shot Phantom M Plus and corresponding QC software facilitates a comprehensive mammography quality-control program.

Volpara logo

Volpara Solutions builds innovative, quantitative breast imaging solutions tools built on the Volpara algorithm which enables the generation of volumetric measurements of density, patient specific dose, breast compression and other factors that provide actionable intelligence designed to help maintain accuracy and consistent quality in breast screening.

To date, more than 2 million women have had their volumetric breast density analyzed using VolparaDensity. Cleared by the FDA, HealthCanada, the TGA and CE-marked, VolparaDensity is used by radiologists to objectively assess density from both digital mammography and tomosynthesis images and help evaluate who might benefit from additional screening. Highly correlated to breast MR assessments, VolparaDensity is a reliable tool which automatically generates an objective, automatic measurement of volumetric breast density and a FDA cleared BI-RADS breast density category.

VolparaAnalytics assists in quality assurance by monitoring critical elements of the breast imaging process and generating key metrics to help understand the performance of technologists, readers, and mammography and tomosynthesis machines.

VolparaDose improves the accuracy of mammography dose reporting by using a standard mean glandular dose (MGD) algorithm along with patient-specific volumetric breast density to give a better estimate of the dose absorbed by the specific breast.
