Does the Screening Mammography Program use digital mammography?
The Screening Mammography Program is continuing to monitor the developments in digital based mammography. Through time, this technology is expected to replace film/screen technologies. However, both digital and film/screen technologies currently provide an equivalent standard of care for mammography. Digital mammography is used for screening at the SMP – Victoria General Hospital. As screening mammography is the best way to detect early breast cancer, we encourage you to continue to have your regular screening mammograms. The SMP stresses that digital and film/screen technologies provide an equivalent standard of care.
