MGU-1000A / X-ray mammography equipment

MGU-1000A

Discipline: Product

Breast cancer rates are rising worldwide. This design is intended to minimize the discomfort of mammography – still the best way to spot breast cancer early. Its gentle form and clean, bright colors reduce patientŽs anxiety while a new type of handrest (patent pending) reduces discomfort from pressure on the breasts, easing tension and relaxing patients. The intuitive, universal design is ideal for most physiques and lets technicians focus on the patient, not the device. X-ray isolation is done using steel and aluminum, not lead, and each component is RoHS-compatible, where possible. The design encourages resource reuse and recycling.
