Edward's state-of-the-art digital mammography technology uses low-dose radiation to screen for breast abnormalities. With digital mammography, mammograms are performed the same way as conventional mammograms, the difference is in how the image is acquired and read.
The benefits of digital mammography also include faster image acquisition, shorter exam times, easier image storage, and ability to transmit images over a network.
