Title (EN) MAMMOGRAPHY APPARATUS AND METHOD TO ADJUST OR TUNE THE MECHANICAL SETTINGS OF SUCH A MAMMOGRAPHY APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE MAMMOGRAPHIE ET PROCÉDÉ D'AJUSTEMENT OU DE RÉGLAGE FIN DES PARAMÈTRES MÉCANIQUES D'UN TEL APPAREIL DE MAMMOGRAPHIE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a method to adjust or tune mechanical settings of a mammography apparatus comprising an x-ra source, a paddle and a detector with a detector cover, wherein before executing an x-ray measurement a patient's breast is placed and compressed between the detector cover and the paddle wherein prior to the x-ray measurement reaction forces between the mammography apparatus and the patient's breast are minimized. The invention relates further to a mammography apparatus comprising an x-ray source, a paddle and a detector with a detector cover, which apparatus is provided with at least one weighing means to measure the downwards forces exerted by (the part of) the apparatus above the weighing means towards the ground.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé pour ajuster ou régler finement des paramètres mécaniques d'un appareil de mammographie, comprenant une source de rayons X, un palpateur et un détecteur ayant un couvercle de détecteur. Avant d'exécuter une mesure aux rayons X, la poitrine d'une patiente est placée et comprimée entre le couvercle de détecteur et le palpateur; avant la mesure aux rayons X, des forces de réaction entre l'appareil de mammographie et la poitrine de la patiente sont réduites à un minimum. L'invention concerne en outre un appareil de mammographie comprenant une source de rayons X, un palpateur et un détecteur ayant un couvercle de détecteur, l'appareil comportant au moins un moyen de pesage pour mesurer les forces descendantes exercées par (la partie de) l'appareil au-dessus du moyen de pesage vers le sol.
