Digital Now HD adapts each digitized film image to a selected contrast and tissue intensity that models a digital mammography system.Digital Now HD software is the only FDA-cleared application intended to process digitized screen-film mammograms, and should be used for comparison purposes only.
Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime.
The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival.

During a tomosynthesis exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles.
These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast.Miami Breast Institute is one of the first women’s centers in Florida to offer tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening.Breast tomosynthesis helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue.Multimodality options allow all DICOM breast images from other imaging modalities such as ultrasound and MRI to be reviewed side by side, improving workflow and efficiency.Integrated computer aided detection (CAD) functionality quickly and efficiently displays areas that may warrant closer attention or a second review.The Selenia® Dimensions™ 3D tomosynthesis system is the first commercially-available tool to deliver on the extraordinary promise of breast tomosynthesis.Ground-breaking tomosynthesis (3D) technology optimizes diagnostic performance and workflow efficiencies.Breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis when combined with a conventional 2D mammography has a higher cancer detection rate than conventional 2D mammography alone.Tomosynthesis technology gives radiologists increased confidence with a significant reduction in recall rates.Dimensions delivers one-touch control to transition between full-field digital (2D) and tomosynthesis (3D) imaging modes.Hologic's unique C-View feature quickly acquires a traditional digital mammogram and a tomosynthesis scan in the same compression, thereby eliminating the need for multiple acquisitions and radiation exposures.
