With High Definition Breast Tomosynthesis1, you can trust in what you see. Its unique Enhanced Multiple Parameter Iterative Reconstruction – in short, EMPIRE Technology1 – displays highly defined tissue and lesion morphology in unprecedented detail. And Insight1 lets you gain deeper insights in 2D and even 3D. But see for yourself.
EMPIRE Technology is a unique combination of iterative and machine-learning algorithms. It provides images with clarity that is unparalleled in both contrast and detail. See microcalcifications clearly. Evaluate their morphology precisely. And make confident diagnostic decisions quickly and efficiently.
Siemens Healthcare’s breast tomosynthesis offers clear advantages. To give you more confidence and your patients results they can trust.
With the widest angle, breast cancer has no place to hide
without compromising image quality
which translates into time savings and higher throughput for your institution5
Siemens Healthcare is a constant innovator in breast imaging. Driven by your need for better diagnostic capabilities, we have been developing and evolving new technologies for more than 50 years.
The widest tomo angle of 50° and 25 projections provides the perspective required for optimal depth resolution, which cannot be achieved with smaller angles.
Enhanced Multiple Parameter Iterative Reconstruction – empowered by our 50° angle.
EMPIRE Technology is a unique combination of iterative and machine-learning algorithms
The tomosynthesis volume is reconstructed as 0.2 mm super-resolution slices to capture even more detail from the wide angle aquisition.
Machine-learning algorithms intelligently merge the super-resolution 0.2 mm slices into 2 mm slices for optimized viewing. This dramatically improves contrast while preserving details like spiculated masses, architectural distortions, and the morphology of microcalcifications.
The iterative noise cancelation improves contrast resolution and provides a natural image impression. The algorithm analyses image data in all directions to reliably distinguish anatomical structures from noise.
The adaptive machine learning-based windowing instantly optimizes contrast and brightness settings of images – improving comparisons of both sides and prior images.
Become the institution of choice by providing more comprehensive tomosynthesis examinations at lower dose with Insight. The 2D visualization and 3D display of the High Definition Breast Tomosynthesis data provide greater insight, which may lead to more accurate and earlier detection.7

Dr. Finn Linhardt, Radiologist and Senior Consultant in Breast Imaging, worked with Siemens Healthcare during the development of High Definition Breast Tomosynthesis and shares his impressions.
Mammography screening can help save lives. However, concern about dose can result in fewer women participating in screenings. We are committed to keeping dose as low as reasonably possible – helping you become the institution of choice and attract more women for screening. Find out how much you can reduce dose levels with our unique technologies for mammography and tomosynthesis.
Reduce dose by up to 30% with our PRIME Technology* – without compromising image quality. Progressive Reconstruction Intelligently Minimizing Exposure, or PRIME Technology for short, is the world’s first software-based anti-scatter solution for mammography.9
