Digital Mammography in Northern Virginia

Digital Mammography

Digital mammography can be read faster and is more accurate than traditional mammography, and has proven to detect significantly more cancers (up to 28 percent more), particularly in:

      Women under age 50
      Women with dense breast tissue
      Pre- or postmenopausal women

Digital mammography administers lower doses of radiation to patients, requires a shorter exam time and offers the ability to correct under- or over-exposed pictures without having to repeat the procedure. Digital images can also be stored electronically, which eliminates the need for transporting films, and they can be retrieved electronically, which allows for easier long-distance consulting. Fauquier Hospital has two digital mammography rooms to provide you with fast, accurate imaging.
