Interfaith Medical Center offers digital mammography machine
Interfaith Medical Center says its new mammography machine will simplify the way things are done, thanks to a new state-of-the-art digital technology.
After a mammogram is performed on the machine, the results can be stored directly on a computer, creating a digital solution instead of an X-ray image that is captured on film.
"In the past, we would have hard copy films which would require handling storage; they could get lost, they could get damaged," says Dr. Robert Limani, of Interfaith Medical Center.
Limiani says the film is hard to examine, and adds that a scanned image can be made larger, smaller, brighter or darker.
Assemblywoman Annette Robinson calls the digital machine an investment in central Brooklyn, securing $500,000 in state money.
The hospital wants women to know that early detection can save lives, and with the digital mammography machine they say that goal will be accomplished.
