New mammogram machine

Jihlava Hospital has got a new digital mammogram machine. New device brings new opportunities that will contribute to faster and more accurate diagnosis of breast cancer. This cancer is one of the most serious cancer of the female population in the Czech Republic. The machine cost 6 mil. CZK.


A digital mammogram machine uses compression and x-rays to image your breast, but instead of capturing the image on film as with traditional mammography, the image is captured to a computer as a digital image file. Also called a full-field digital mammogram (FFDM), this technology compares well with film mammography and will benefit younger women the most.


Digital mammography uses less radiation than traditional film mammography, reducing your lifetime exposure to x-rays.


Once your mammogram images are in the computer, your radiologist can view them on a monitor, much as you would look at digital photos. On the computer, your radiologist can closely examine the images by zooming in, adjusting the image brightness, or changing the contrast, making all areas of the breast easier to see.
