Digital mammography units record images of breast tissue digitally, instead of on X-ray film. The advantages of digital mammography compared to traditional mammography include:
- Reduced exam time
- Lower average radiation dose
- Quality assur ance: Technologists are able to check for image quality just seconds are acquiring an image, allowing the technologist to confirm image quality before the patient leaves the mammography room.
- Visibility: For the radiologist, the system provides better visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, the chest wall and in women with dense breast tissue.
