Digital mammography arrives to rural Washington at Willapa Harbor Hospital
Choosing Fujifilm to upgrade from CR to DR mammography was a "no-brainer" for Willapa Harbor Hospital, after partnering with Fujifilm for many years.
In addition to the great Fujifilm service that Willapa had come to rely on, the Hospital was intrigued by Fujifilm's Comfort Paddle, which provides gentle and even breast compression, and the system's hexagonal detector design engineered for higher detailed images at a low dose.
"The ASPIRE Cristalle reduces radiation to the patient by approximately 30 percent. I can also tell you that many of the women notice a difference in the comfort level with the flexible [comfort] paddles. This system is much more comfortable than the system it replaced."
