Research & Development


Research and development is an essential tool for development and innovation in our mammography systems, a much sought-after benefit, achieved through the teamwork of a motivated group that works well together and in which the value of people and their ideas is the most important element.


The studies are carried out both in-house, in dedicated areas equipped with full instrumentation and in close partnership with university research departments and hospital clinics.

  • Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) this is a project already achieved. But a dedicated group of people inside and outside IMS GIOTTO continues to study in order to continually update:

› 15 researchers in the R&D Dept.
› Stony Brook Univ. New York
› Physics Dept. Univ. of Bologna (10 researchers)
› Physics Dept Univ. of Ferrara
› Dexela researchers London
› Other Universities as Udine (Italy), Milan (Italy) and Bologna (Italy)

  • Several new projects are currently being studied in IMS GIOTTO!
