VALENCIA, Calif., October 25, 2022 (Newswire.com) –
PDC, a global leader in innovative patient identification and safety solutions, today announced the launch of the Comfort Cushion™ mammography cushion for mammography providers, including hospitals and breast and breast health centers. wife. The soft pad is applied by mammography technicians to the receiving plate of the mammography machine to reduce patient discomfort during compression. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when the country is emphasizing the need for screening for early cancer detection, mammography clinicians are concerned that mammography screening volumes will still be not returned to pre-COVID-19 levels.

“Customers at our breast health centers are always looking for ways to improve patient comfort while capturing accurate images during the procedure,” said Lisa Kim, Global Product Manager at PDC. “That’s why we created Comfort Cushion. It reduces patient discomfort, but the grip of the cushion also allows technicians to position and secure the breasts correctly, allowing for more accurate imaging and diagnosis. “

“Comfort Cushion enhances the patient experience by making mammography examinations more comfortable,” said Moriah Montilla, RT(R)(M), duty supervisor at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital. “We hope Comfort Cushion will help patients feel more comfortable coming back each year for their annual mammogram.”

The comfort pad is applied directly to the image receptor with a convenient sticker and is easily and cleanly removed when image capture is complete. It is available in two convenient sizes to allow technicians to choose the size that best suits the patient and their image receptor. The comfort pad has a soft, squishy feel and is a pleasant lavender color. It is packaged 50 per box.
