This mammogram machine is designed to make life-saving breast exams more comfortable for women in the hopes that the experience will encourage more to get checked. The SmartCurve Breast Stabilization System from Hologic is clinically proven to give more comfortable mammograms for more satisfied patients.

Many women avoid the painful process of having their breasts compressed and pinched with standard machinery. Hologic's solution doesn't compress the tissue as intensely and the curved design reduces pinching. The system improves the breast imaging experience for patients with its more comfortable breast shape-mirroring curved compression surface that does not compromise accuracy, dose, image quality or technologist workflow. The mammogram machine is also compatible with the Hologic Genius 3D Mammography Exam.
