ASPIRE Cristalle with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) is built smarter because it is built with insight into image quality, operational excellence, and a better patient experience.
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 that 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
The resulting images have high DQE and MTF, producing brilliant image quality
Offers exceptionally sharp images, even at a low dose
iAEC plus ISC: Optimized x-ray dose and contrast for each breast type
Fujifilm's proprietary technology makes it possible to lower the 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 a 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 the plate to flex to the contour of the breast
Bends from the center of the 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

ARIETTA 850 produces images of exceptional clarity by carefully shaping its sonographic pulses and then precisely managing the resulting echo data throughout the entire signal-processing chain: from probe to final image display. This process, Pure Symphonic Imaging, ensures that only the purest data is used to fuel the advanced imaging capabilities of the 850.
ARIETTA 850 systems provide:
Extraordinary high-resolution digital imaging with advanced imaging options like Real-time Tissue Elastography and Real-time Virtual Sonography
A broad selection of general-purpose and specialty probes
Comprehensive ergonomics for scanning comfort
Intuitive and efficient operation to meet increasing workloads
4G CMUT Probe
While ultrasound technology has evolved drastically over the last half-century, probe technology has seen little change as researchers sought transducers that could improve the performance of piezoelectric material. ARIETTA 850 makes this technological leap, supporting the world’s first fully-featured Capacitive Micro-machined Ultrasound Transducer. The SML44 probe contains thousands of high-sensitivity, wide-bandwidth CMUT cells that are printed onto a silicon substrate using techniques first developed in the semiconductor industry. The resulting operating bandwidth of 2-22MHz enables the probe to perform the work of multiple conventional probes.
eFocusing employs the 850’s advanced variable beamformer to perform real-time focusing along the entire depth of the image. The technique obviates the need to set or adjust focal zones, automatically providing optimal focusing from near to far-field.
Powerful computing and image-processing hardware manages the acquired ultrasound signal, performing countless data-enhancement algorithms like Acoustic Noise Reduction and Near field Noise Reduction, while maintaining high frame rates.
23” LCD Display
The 850’s 23” display delivers WXGA++ resolution with tilt and swivel capabilities for easy viewing. The height adjustment and swivel functions together with the operation panel.
ARIETTA 850 WORKFLOW
The 850’s 22-inch display uses an Organic LED monitor to deliver exceptional image fidelity. Because the monitor technology does not require backlighting, true-black can be more accurately represented, resulting in greater image contrast.
Healthcare providers continue to expect more efficiency from their Sonographers, and ARIETTA 850 is designed to help facilitate these advances in workflow while offering an ergonomic work environment to safeguard users from the fatigue and long-term injury that can result from repetitive scanning.
