Digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high resolution computer monitor, and transmitted and stored just like computer files.

Digital mammography offers a number of practical advantages and patient conveniences. One of the primary benefits is the ability of the radiologist to view and manipulate the digital images. The radiologist can adjust brightness and contrast, and zoom in on specific areas to help detect small calcifications and masses that may be signs of early cancer.
