VolparaDensity is part of a suite of quantitative breast imaging tools built on the Volpara Solutions algorithm that allows for personalized measurements of density, patient dose, breast compression
and other factors designed to help maintain accuracy and consistent quality in breast screening.
The test is simple, painless and involves no radiation, breast compression
, electrodes or electrical current.
The CTLM is a non-invasive, painless examination that does not expose the patient to radiation or require breast compression
In addition, the CTLM examination is performed without having to employ breast compression
, radiation, or contrast injections.
According to a study being presented next week at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), standardizing the pressure applied in mammography would reduce pain associated with breast compression
without sacrificing image quality.
Some health care providers claim thermography is superior to mammography as a screening method for breast cancer because it does not require radiation exposure or breast compression
