Abstract
(DE) Um bei einem Mammografiegerät einen kompakten und konstruktiv einfachen Aufbau zu ermöglichen, ist eine Bestrahlungseinheit (2) an einem C-Bogen (14) befestigt, welcher in einer Schwenkebene liegt, die senkrecht zu einer Horizontalachse (22) ausgerichtet ist. Hierdurch wirken nur geringe mechanische Hebelkräfte auf den Tragarm (14). Gleichzeitig wird durch die C-bogenartige Ausgestaltung ein Freiraum geschaffen, der insbesondere auch für die Anordnung eines Anzeige- und/oder Bedienfelds (26) sowie für die Anordnung einer Biopsieeinheit (30) herangezogen wird.
(EN) To permit a compact and structurally simple design of a mammography appliance, an irradiation unit (2) is secured on a C-arm (14), which lies in a swivel plane that is perpendicular to a horizontal axis (22). In this way, only slight mechnical leverages act on the support arm (14). At the same time, the C-arm design creates a free space, which is used in particular also for the arrangement of a display and/or control panel (26) and for the arrangement of a biopsy unit (30).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de mammographie qui présente une structure compacte et simple à construire. Une unité d'irradiation (2) est fixée sur un arc de cercle en C (14) situé dans un plan de pivotement orienté perpendiculairement à un axe horizontal (22). Ainsi, seules des forces mécaniques de levier faibles sont exercées sur le bras de support (14). En même temps, la configuration en forme d'arc de cercle en C crée un espace libre qui est utilisé en particulier pour agencer un panneau d'affichage et/ou de commande (26) ainsi que pour agencer une unité de biopsie (30).
