Women who undergo mammograms at Radiology Associates of Ridgewood New Jersey now have the latest generation of diagnostic technology available to them — digital mammography.
Digital mammography allows high resolution images of the breast to be viewed by radiologists and also offers a unique ability to enhance certain areas of the breast. On a computer following the mammogram, a radiologist can magnify the image, increase or decrease contrasting shades, and invert black and white values while reading the images. These image enhancements improve diagnostic potential and limit radiation exposure.
To supplement this technology, we have incorporated digital Computer-Aided Detection (CAD). Digital CAD highlights characteristics commonly associated with breast cancer. When activated, it flags abnormalities to help a radiologist detect early breast cancer.
The cutting-edge digital technology is called the Selenia™ digital mammography system from Hologic, Inc. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us at 201-445-8822.
