WE PROVIDE SOFTER MAMMOGRAM IMAGING
Kaweah Delta Breast Center is a certified Softer Mammogram Provider, a distinction awarded only to an elite group of healthcare facilities.
The FDA-cleared foam cusion, called MammoPad®, creates a softer, warmer mammogram. MammoPad® has been clinically demonstrated to reduce discomfort for most women.
WE PROVIDE ALL DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY
Digital mammography has been shown to provide detailed image quality and may be better for some women then traditional film mammography.
Kaweah Delta Breast Center is home to Visalia's first digital mammography units. A digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert x-ray energy into digital data. Digital technology also offers better visibility of the entire breast. In addition, digital now makes the mammogram process faster than film and is available to the Radiologist electronically and almost instantly for quicker and better results.
The combination of full-field digital mammogram equipment with a new breast cushion dramatically eases the discomfort many women feel when they get a mammogram, making this new technology the number one choice for patients when seeking this type of professional care.
