“Soft” New Paddle for Mammography

American Mammographics has developed the new S.O.F.T. Paddle for Screening Mammography. S.O.F.T. Paddle is the "Special Optimized Full Tilt" compression paddle and is used as an alternative to the conventional flat compression paddle in screening mammography for superior compression of the mid- and anterior-breast with less patient discomfort.
