All mammograms are read by specially-trained breast radiologists whose practices are focused on breast care.
Using specialized breast radiologists increases the quality of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment; it's a key indicator of a top-quality breast care program. Practice makes perfect, which is very important in cancer care.
Digital mammography faster and more accurate
Digital technology presents the clearest image possible in breast imaging. Studies show that digital technology finds more cancers at earlier stages, when the probability of a cure is best.
