Digital Mammography

Chios MRI Diagnostic Imaging Center is equipped with a digital mammography system, guaranteeing high reliability in the diagnosis of early breast lesions.

The digital mammography system uses digital probes that provide greater clarity (resolution) and contrast (contrast) compared with analog mammography, which record the image on film.
