3D Digital Mammography

3D-Digital-Mammography-Feature

Because there is no waiting for a film to be developed, digital images are immediately available. This means patients spend less time in the exam room.

The digital machine is fast, allowing patients less time to be in an uncomfortable position. Brightness, darkness and contrast can be adjusted and sections enlarged making reading easier, especially for patients with dense tissue. Digital images are easily stored and retrieved.

Digital mammography is considered a preferred diagnostic tool for women who are either under the age of 50, have very dense or extremely dense breast tissue, are still menstruating or are perimenopausal (starting menopause), but have had a period within the previous 12 months.

Talk with your doctor about having a digital mammogram.
