The Planmed Nuance Excel FFDM unit (currently not FDA approved) boasts proprietary TriFilter technology with the new Tungsten X-ray tube, designed to reduce levels of radiation during a digital mammography exam. This new technology uses less than 60 percent of the dose normally used in conventional digital mammography. In combination with the high performance, a 24-by-30-cm amorphous selenium-based direct digital detector and dedicated image processing, the unit reportedly excels in image quality and diagnostic performance.

At the center of the campaign, Fujifilm will be traveling around the U.S. with its "Aspire to Be Fearless" mobile mammography coach to provide educational opportunities for clinicians, raise awareness about the importance of screening and will be providing mammograms to the underserved population in key locations.
