With a conventional film-based method, the images are recorded on films and cannot be further manipulated for brightness and magnification. With digital mammography, the images are captured by an advanced state-of-the-art detector and digitally stored on high resolution computers. The data can then be viewed, manipulated for optimal contrast and brightness and magnified.
Our digital mammography has a large digital plate to facilitate more precise imaging of larger breasts, making full use of the large detector of the system. The large size of the detector enables imaging of all breast sizes and there is no need to take additional images in most instances. The study is performed in a painless manner with minimal compression of the breasts.
In younger patients and patients with dense breasts, image analysis has been made more easier. There is a full-field magnification capability for every image. This will curtail the need to bring back patients for magnification.
