Digital Mammography

Elaine M. Junca Women’s Imaging Centre uses state-of-the-art digital mammogram technology on all screening and diagnostic mammography exams.

This new technology replaces conventional analog machines which required film to be processed.  Much like your digital camera, digital mammography takes digital pictures of the breast and allows the Radiologist to electronically manipulate the images brightness, contrast, and magnification, so that abnormal areas may be seen more clearly.

By eliminating the need to develop films, Elaine M. Junca Women’s Imaging Centre is able to offer shorter exam times with fewer retakes due to over or underexposure, saving you time, and reducing your radiation exposure.
