We are inspired to improve mammography

 

Worldwide, circa 150 million mammographic examinations are performed every year. To get the best image quality with the least amount of radiation, the breast needs to be compressed.


We developed a patented technology for a highly reproducible procedure with less extreme pain. An optimized breast examination contributes to the early detection of cancer which ultimately can saves lives.

2020 - Mammographic compression practices of force- and pressure-standardisation protocol: A scoping review
In this review, the current standing of mammographic compression practices available in the existing literature was assessed. They concluded: "As a suggested mammographic guideline, compression pressures of approximately 10kPa aid in image acquisition reproducibility both within and between women; pain levels decrease, with minimal variations to breast thickness, AGD and image quality."
2019 - Breast compression and reported pain during mammographic screening
This study showed that a compression pressure of 10.3 - 13.5 kPa was acceptable with respect to reported pain during mammography. Besides, the lowest predicted reported pain scores were observed for compression pressures between 8 kPa and 13 kPa, when using a conventional fixed compression paddle.
