We use sophisticated mammography systems, such as full-field digital mammography, to quickly acquire exceptionally sharp, digital images of the breasts.
This mammography unit captures an electronic picture of the breast in digital format. Once the digital images are transmitted to a high-tech, digital mammography workstation, we analyze the images to determine the precise location and extent of the disease.
Since the images appear on a computer screen, we can adjust the image size, brightness and contrast to see certain areas more clearly.
This technology offers the potential for significant advances in breast cancer diagnosis, including lower radiation doses, reduced breast compression pressure and improved breast cancer detection rates.
