A softer mammogram Mammograms are painful for many women; however, there are ways to reduce discomfort during mammograms. The most frequently reported source of pain is compression, followed by discomfort caused by the edges of the image receptor. MammoPad cushions reduce this discomfort and take the chill off the receptor surface. Studies show that the softer mammogram provided by the MammoPad cushion reduces discomfort by 50% for three out of four women.1,2
Improve patient satisfaction Over 25% of technologists report that mammography discomfort impacts patient satisfaction scores.5 Imaging centers that have added the MammoPad cushion to their mammography services have seen an increase in patient satisfaction5, as well as an increase in patient volume and revenue.6 Promoting a softer mammogram can help differentiate your imaging center from others. The cushions are compatible with many mammography systems.
