The ODC takes pride in being one of Beaumont's only Certified Softer Mammogram Providers and will make available to every mammography patient a complimentary MammoPad upon request.

Medical experts recommend that women 40 and over receive annual screening mammograms. Yet many women do not follow this recommendation, often out of fear of discomfort or pain.

MammoPad, a soft foam cushion, can help with the discomfort many women feel during mammography. The cushion is placed on the surface of the image detector, providing women with a softer, more comfortable mammogram. Clinical studies show three out of four women experience an average 50% decrease in discomfort with MammoPad. The radiolucent cushion does not interfere with image quality.

More than 12 million have already benefited from the MammoPad.
