Mamoray HDR-C plus. The high-contrast mammography film
MAMORAY HDR-C plus (High Dynamic Range - Contrast) mammography film provides the contrast desired for viewing breast tissue and clinical information.
MAMORAY HDR-C plus is a single-sided orthochromatic mammography film that is part of the Agfa film/screen system for mammography. The film uses both Split Emulsion Layer (S.E.L.) and the Cubic Crystal technologies.
Two emulsion technologies working together
MAMORAY HDR-C plus film uses both Split Emulsion Layer (S.E.L.) and the Cubic Crystal technologies. Our Split Emulsion Layer technology provides the MAMORAY HDR-C plus film with two separate emulsion layers on one side of the film. Each of these layers consists of monodispersed Cubic Crystals: cubic silver crystals of identical size. These crystals minimize the noise on the image, which is caused by the inherent film graininess.
The mammography system offered by Agfa today combines several technologies which results in many advantages and in an unmatched mammography image quality. The design of the dynamic range permits visualization of clinically significant information in both glandular and retroglandular tissue. The sensitometric curve supports the visualization of the varying densities found within the breast, providing optimized contrast at each density.
High dynamic range
MAMORAY HDR-C plus performs well for mammography imaging due to its high dynamic range. The sensitometric curve supports the visualization of the varying densities found within the breast, providing optimized contrast at each density.
Two separate emulsion layers
The first emulsion layer provides high contrast in the breast parenchyma and improved visualization of clinically significant information in dense tissue. The second emulsion layer provides the radiologist with a high maximum density, which enhances the visualization of subcutaneous and retro-glandular areas, especially in radio-dense breasts.
Consistent results and ease of use
Cubic Crystals develop rapidly, improving the consistency of your processing. The normal fluctuations in the processing conditions hardly have any effect on the sensitometric results of the MAMORAY HDR-C film. The optimized silver crystal structure of MAMORAY HDR-C plus results in a neutral image tint which makes images easier and comfortable to read. Furthermore, it reduces eye fatigue and maximizes the ability to visualize small details and fine structures within the breast.
