Digital Mammography

New Generation CsI detector

A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breasts. It is used to find tumour and to help tell the difference between noncancerous (benign) and cancerous (malignant) disease. The images were recorded on film for many years. But now digital mammograms can store and analyze the information using a computer.

Benefits of Digital Mammography

  • Digital images can be reviewed more thoroughly, which may allow for earlier detection
  • Digital mammograms are stored electronically, they can be analyzed by computers as well as by radiologists.
  • Digital imaging is faster, there’s no waiting for film to be developed, digital images are immediately available.
  • Digital images are easily stored and retrieved.
  • Digital mammograms expose patients to about one-quarter less radiation than traditional film mammograms.

Why the Mammography Test is Performed?

Mammography is designed to take images of the patient’s breasts in order to detect any tumors or other tissue abnormalities. It is a very useful procedure in detecting breast cancers.

Screening Mammography – This is used to examine changes in the breast of a woman who do not have any signs or symptoms of breast cancer. The focus is to diagnose a cancerous growth before the clinical signs or symptoms start (early diagnosis).

Diagnostic Mammography – This is done to identify any skeptical changes occurring in the breast e.g. breast pain, lumps, unusual skin color, discharge from the nipples, the unusual shape of the breast, nipple thickening, etc. Diagnostic mammogram comprises of some extra mammogram images.

  • Women aged 20 and older should have a clinical breast exam every 3 years
  • Women aged 45 and older should have a clinical breast exam every year

Preparation & Procedure

The upper half of the clothes needs to be removed or a hospital gown needs to be worn before the test. Avoid using any deodorant, body powders, body lotions, perfumes, creams especially on the breast and armpits. The woman can eat and drink normally before the test is performed. Inform you doctor incase of Pregnancy. Remove all the jewelry before the test.

The method of getting mammogram images is the same for both types. A technician positions your breast between two plates, and flattens and compresses it. They then takes images of your breast from top to bottom and side to side. Digital mammography uses computer-based electronic conductors to display a picture of the interior of the breast for the clearest, most accurate images, to lead to a correct diagnosis. Our radiologists review the images and discuss the results with you

Time Taken For Digital Mammography

The entire process takes about 20-30 minutes.

Mammomat Fusion

where premium meets everyday

The innovative CsI detector technology improves both spatial resolution and dose efficiency and the large 23 cm x 30 cm (9″ x 12″) format provides the wide coverage This new detector technology is also remarkably robust, making Mammomat Fusion particularly suitable for challenging situations, such as truck-installed mobile screening units when screening healthy women.

Unique MaxFill Technology

MaxFill technology uses the incoming X-rays more efficiently. The effective X-ray-sensitive area of each pixel has been significantly increased with an innovative multi-layer design. This new detector architecture results in a smaller, 83 ìm pixel size and higher detective quantum efficiency (DQE) For better image quality at the right dose.

Optimized scintillator thickness

The results in better image quality, at the right dose.

Personalized OpDose@

Depending on breast density and thickness, OpDose determines the exposure parameters required for each breast individually and uses Automatic Exposure Control to acquire the best-possible image. OpDose works in every position and automatically excludes the pectoral muscle from its calculation.

Personalized OpComp@ with Soft Speed

Thanks to OpComp with SoftSpeed, the compression slows down as soon as the plate reaches the breast. Compression is increased only as long as the breast is soft and pliable, stopping automatically when the optimal level of compression is reached, improving image quality and patient comfort
