Digital Mammography is a regular mammogram where images are acquired using computerized digital technology in place of traditional film.
Digital mammography allows the radiologist to electronically manipulate images where they can be lightened or darkened and examined more closely.
Digital Mammography has been shown to be better at detecting breast cancer in:
Women who are premenopausal or peri-menopausal
Women who are under age 50
Women who have dense breast tissue
Annual Screening Mammography is recommend for all women age 40 and over.
