True isotropic 3D resolution

nu:view is a dedicated breast CT scanner for diagnostic X-ray imaging with short scan times, excellent low-contrast resolution and high spatial resolution.

X-ray tube and X-ray detector were specifically designed for breast CT scanning and utilize state-of-the-art photon-counting technology. Beside the X-ray components also the image reconstruction software is optimized for highest image quality and guarantees best dose usage.

Three-dimensional superimposition-free images are generated to allow detectability of calcifications and to provide excellent soft-tissue differentiation.

The system is designed for high patient comfort without breast compression.
