Digital mammography gives a clear advantage

Digital mammography provides exceedingly sharp images in less time than a traditional mammography. These images can be computer-enhanced to help detect small calcifications, masses and changes that may be signs of early cancer. Repeat visits due to motion or faulty film exposure are virtually eliminated and techs know immediately if another view is needed. These images are also stored easily and transferred electronically, allowing Dr. Klouda to review them anywhere via computer.
