Bella Blankets®, Beekley Medical
South Hall A, Booth #1605
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
Every millimeter counts™ with Bella Blankets® protective coverlets for mammography. Cancers that occur at the chest wall may not be visualized if breast tissue is missing from the image. Thin by design, Bella Blankets align with proper positioning initiatives to support MQSA’s EQUIP guidelines by helping technologists get as close to the chest wall as possible for improved visualization of pectoralis muscle and retroglandular tissue. Textured material helps immobilize “hard to position” breasts to assist with obtaining an open IMF. New Vertical Channel Technology™ allows air to push out and release upon application, reducing air bubbles. Easy-lift PIK-UP™ tab allows for easy removal from the receptor plate without leaving residue.
