This Refurbished Senographe 2000D is a complete modular system that offers the capability to acquire images in real time. With the Senographe 2000D, you can deliver high exam productivity, as well as potential dose reduction when compared to film screen. It takes full advantage of the digital technology from on-screen image display (non-diagnostic softcopy reading) to networking, filming and archiving.

Features

The Senographe 2000 D’s digital technology offers the capability to acquire images in near-real time and to process them (variation of
brightness and contast levels, auto-windowing, and image manipulation.  It also offers high exam productivity, and potential dose reduction as compared to film/screen. The tube’s Rhodium spectrum is optimized in digital imaging.

Large Flat Panel Digital Detector

  • Panel active area: 19.2 x 23 cm.
  •  Pixel (Pitch) size: 100 microns.
  • Image size : In basic mode, 1920 x 2300 pixels, 14 bits depth. 9Mb per image, image size of 19.2 x 23 cm.
  • Typical Pre-sampled Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) :
  • 90% at 1 lp/mm.
  • 75% at 2 lp/mm
  • 30% at 5 lp/mm.
  • 8% at 8 lp/mm.
  • Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE): DQE (at 2 lp/mm) = 0.6 for Rh/Rh 30kV 14mAs
  • Acquisition bit depth = 14 bits.

Advantage Windows workstation

  • Senographe 2000 D’s Acquisition and non-diagnostic Review Workstations have been uniquely designed for Mammography on GE’s computer platform, Advantage Windows.
  • Mammography-specific user interfaces and applications have been developed on this AdvantageWindows base.

Gantry

• The unique dual anode Senographe DMR tube is featured on Senographe 2000 D allowing optimal use of Rhodium with digital imaging.
• All acquisition related user interface (choice of technique, exposure controls) are located on the Gantry’s control panel.
• The non-removable detector is located in the image receptor at a fixed source to image for optimal imaging performance.
• Since there is no increase in the image receptor thickness, all patient positioning, choice of angulation, choice of magnification factors, etc. are performed in the exact same fashion as on a conventional unit.
• The grid is contained in a very thin easily removable bucky which slides on top of the image receptor.

• The bucky with grid can be removed for magnification purposes and replaced with a protective non-grid bucky.
• The Automatic Optimization of Parameters (AOP) and Manual exposure modes are avaible on Senographe 2000 D. Taking advantage of the fast readout capability of the panel, a unique algorithm automatically optimizes the location of the measurement point under the breast for exposure control and thus eliminates cell positioning.

Review Workstation

Once the image or the exam has been deemed acceptable on the Acquisition Workstation (in terms of positioning, etc.) it can be sent to the optional non-diagnostic Review Workstation for advanced image manipulation including : educational studies, annotation, and report preparation. It is possible that several Acquisition Workstations share one non-diagnostic Review Workstation.
• Like the Acquisition Workstation, this workstation is also based on GE’s Advantage Windows platform.
• This is a powerful workstation, placed in the review room and equipped with two very high resolution (2Kx2.5K) B&W monitors and with the OneTouch dedicated Keypad for fast, user-friendly interface.
• The images are displayed in full resolution. The station offers different user selectable scenarios to provide efficient image manipulation.
• After transfer from the Acquisition Workstation, images are automatically stored onto the local hard disk and organized in the
database to allow easy access at a later stage.
• Both on-screen user-interface and OneTouch dedicated keypad have been specially designed for user-friendliness and to save time.
• Image processing features : Different “Auto-contrast” modes provide automatic contrast designed for visualization of different breast
structures, at the touch of a button.
• Manual brightness/contrast adjustement.
• “Quadrant Zoom” cycles through zoomed images of the four quadrants of the breast at the touch of a button.
Magnifying Glass, Zoom, Roam.
• Flip, Rotate, Inversion.
• User annotations, graphics.
• Measurements, distances and areas.
• Choice of view format.
• Patient and exam information on screen.
• Non-diagnostic Review Workstation connectivity :
• “DICOM receive” for images coming from the Acquisition Workstation, from a mass-archiving system or from another station.
• “DICOM Push” to send images.
• “DICOM Print” to produce film hard-copies.
• It is possible to connect a CD-R Interchange device for image communication purposes

Productivity

• Senographe 2000 D provides productivity gains since :
• Film/screen cassettes are eliminated.
• Cheminal costs may be reduced.
• Labor costs are reduced due to elimination of cassette handling.
• Retakes can be reduced and exams are faster, so patient throughput is higher.
• Magnifying Glass, Zoom, Roam.
• Flip, Rotate, Inversion.
• User annotations, graphics.
• Measurements, distances and areas.
• Choice of view format.
• Patient and exam information on screen.
• Non-diagnostic Review Workstation connectivity :
• “DICOM receive” for images coming from the Acquisition Workstation, from a mass- archiving system or from another station.
• “DICOM Push” to send images.
• “DICOM Print” to produce film hard-copies.
• It is possible to connect a CD-R Interchange device for image communication purpose

Connectivity

The Senographe 2000 D Images are stored under the DICOM format.
• Senographe 2000 D features optional laser printing capabilities with high-resolution printers like the Agfa LR5200, Kodak Dryview
8600, or any other equivalent cameras.
• 750 digital images can be stored on the Senographe 2000 D’s Acquisition Workstation hard disk, plus the raw data for each image. Up
to 1500 images can be stored on the non-diagnostic ReviewWorkstation’s hard disk, plus an additional capacity of 6,000 images with the 54GB external hard disk tower option.
• At the completion of a patient exam, images are sent immediately to the printer, optional archive device, or optional non-diagnostic Review Workstation.
• A mass archive system can be connected with the Acquisition Workstation and the Review Workstation.
• Images are ‘pushed’ to the mass archive system exclusively from the Acquisition Workstation, but both the Acquisition and the non-
diagnostic Review Workstations can receive archived images.
• A cost effective CD-R Interchange device (recordable) is available as an option, for image communication purposes. Up to 70 digital images can be archived on one CD-R.
