Norton Healthcare is proud to offer digital mammography with the FDA-approved R2 computer-aided detection (CAD) system. Digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce images that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor, and transmitted and stored just like computer files. The CAD system assists radiologists by digitizing and analyzing mammograms for suspicious areas that may indicate the presence of cancer. With digital mammography, the radiologist reviews electronic images of the breast, using special high-resolution monitors. The physician can adjust the brightness, change contrast and zoom in for closeups of specific areas.
