Compression is key to getting a good mammogram. It prevents movement that can lead to blurred images. Compression spreads out the normal dense tissue of your breast, making it easier for radiologists to see through it and detect abnormalities. And, the more a breast is compressed, the less radiation exposure will be needed. Compression is important, but it doesn’t have to be painful anymore.
We chose the Siemens Healthineer’s MAMMOMAT Revelation mammography system because it makes comfort personal. Every woman is different so the MAMMOMAT Revelation automatically compresses only as long as your breast is soft and pliable. This means you get exactly the right amount of compression for your breast type without losing any accuracy. The system’s soft- edges and shape fits your breast’s curves so comfort is there right from the start.
MAMMOMAT Revelation provides a better experience and more diagnostic information.
Comfort is just the beginning when you have a MAMMOMAT Revelation exam. Your doctor is also getting high-quality 3D images thanks to the system’s unique wide-angle technology. This makes it easier to find small cancers with greater accuracy. It also means fewer false positives and callbacks for re-examination (because unnecessary exams are a pain too!).
