The Chrysalis Breast Displacement System was developed in response to the need to reduce breast radiation in CTCA and CT of the abdomen where the breasts are in the plane of imaging and the plane of imaging is relatively limited. It can be used for low dose CT screening for lung CA in those patients with large breasts where image quality, particularly at low dose is a challenge. Moving the breasts upwards decreases the amount of tissue in the scan plane.

The BASIC Chrysalis Breast Displacement System includes 3 additional components to fit a wide variety of patient sizes. The components are attached together in a "chain-like" fashion with hook & loop fasteners for stability and optimal fit. There are fiducial markers seen with topographic images on the upper and lower margins of the "ruler" on the main body that enable you to place external lead shielding to further improve radiation dose reduction to the breasts. Hook & loop fasteners on the front of the main body of the Chrysalis and the back of the external shielding keeps the shielding from shifting into the plane of imaging during the CT examination. Loops on the main body and the additional components of the Chrysalis keep the encircling straps from shifting onto the patient and make for a snug fit. The buckles are designed to be tightened both laterally and medially for your convenience and for optimal fitting.  

The Chrysalis Breast Displacement System PACKAGE includes the BASIC Chrysalis Breast Displacement System and external lead shielding in multiple leaves that enables the shielding to lie flat on top of the breasts. It has hook & loop backing that affixes to the main body of the Chrysalis to prevent shifting of the shielding into the plane of imaging when performing the CT examination.
