Capture more breast tissue with Bella Blankets® protective coverlets. Thin by design, Bella Blankets allows technologists to position patients as close to the chest wall as possible. Textured material helps with "hard to position" breasts, prevents breasts from sticking to receptor plate to avoid skin tears, helps shield cuts or infections in the inframammary fold, and acts as a sanitary barrier. New Vertical Channel Technology™ (only from Beekley Medical) allows air to push out and release upon application, reducing air bubbles. Easy-lift PIK-UP™ tab allows for easy removal of Bella Blankets from the receptor plate without leaving residue.
Using Bella Blankets aligns with proper positioning initiatives to support MQSA’s EQUIP guidelines. Bella Blankets’ FDA 510(k) clearance applies to all mammography imaging equipment. Using Bella Blankets during a mammogram is essentially the same average glandular dose as no coverlet on the receptor plate.1
