  • Identifies lesions in females with thick breast tissue. This is usually difficult to recognize with the help of mammography.

  • An apparent image of soft tissue is produced which is normally hidden in x-ray images.

  • The images that are formed lead to additionally precise detection of lesion and groups which cannot be sufficiently interpreted via mammograms alone.

  • This method is non-invasive, painless and comfortable and doesn’t require any intravenous infusions or injections.

  • It’s cost-effective and greatly available.
