Metro Denver Digital Mammography
Digital mammography is quickly becoming the standard in routine breast imaging and is the best tool for early diagnosis, giving patients a much better chance of survival from breast cancer and leading a long, productive life. At the St. Anthony Breast Center, we strive to deliver the highest quality of care to Denver digital mammogram patients by using the most advanced technology available. All screening mammograms use the Selenia™ digital mammography system from Hologic®, who has recognized the St. Anthony Breast Center as a Pink Ribbon Facility.
Digital mammography is different from conventional mammography in how the image of the breast is acquired and, more importantly, viewed. The radiologist can magnify the images, increase or decrease the contrast and invert the black and white values while reading the images. These features allow the radiologist to evaluate microcalcifications and focus on areas of concern.
Benefits of Selenia™ digital mammography include:
- Images appear on the technologist's monitor in a matter of seconds, no waiting for film to develop, which can mean a shorter time spent in breast imaging.
- Digital images generate electronic images that can be manipulated to see the area of interest.
- Digital Mammogram reduces the need for retakes; reducing exposure to x-rays.
- Digital images can be transferred, copied and stored eliminating the need to keep on-hand one set of films.
