MEETING DESCRIPTION:
New Game – New Rules! Join us to learn not only how to play the game but excel at it! Film screen mammography has been the standard, but digital is here for many of us.

Full field digital mammography (FFDM) and computed radiography mammograms (CRM) are replacing film screen mammograms at a number of facilities. This technology is versatile and has the ability to gather more information than ever before.
