  • Digital images are produced electronically, instead of on film, with a larger viewing area that better accommodates diverse shapes and sizes.
  • It's faster and more accurate — images are generated within seconds.
  • Images can be magnified and manipulated for optimum clarity.
  • All images are double-checked using the ImageChecker® enhanced breast screening technology.
  • Electronic images make it easier for consultation among health care specialists and reduce the risk of misplaced or damaged films.
