State-Of-The-Art Digital Mammography System

Joseph Brant Hospital performs breast screening on our state-of-the-art Digital Mammography System. It offers stunning attention to detail and image quality, with a low dose of radiation. 

The Digital Mammography System aids in early identification and diagnosis. Meaning:

  • There may be more treatment options.
  • There is a better chance of successful treatment.
