Patient Imaging Process

During examination, the patient stands in front of the machine while her breast is positioned onto a panel of red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and enveloped by a thin silicone membrane that acts as a breast holder. The breast holder then gently inflates to a pressure of about 10mm Hg (~1/4 psi). The computer controls the light that is transmitted through the breast and recorded by the highly-sensitive digital CCD camera located above the breast. The ComfortScan® system stores the sequence of images in digital memory and the computer processes the minimal differences in the variations of intensity between normal, or benign, and malignant tissue. The entire procedure takes less than 10 minutes and results are immediately available to the technologist or physician.
