The next time you are scheduled to have a mammogram, ask your physician if it is digital or an analog mammogram. If possible you would prefer Digital mammography. DM is revolutionizing the mammography industry. Radiologists can now enhance images, zoom in, change parameters to better see an area. We can also apply a computer generated program (CAD)to circle areas of suspicion. This is much better than the old way of film. DM also prevents multiple "re-shoots" which is very uncomfortable for the patient. Remember you have a choice, and choose digital. Thats it for this tidbit. If you have any questions please feel free to respond on this blog.
