International Women’s Day is held on 8th March. A occasion to remember the important issue of breast cancer.
Statistically, one in eight women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Breast cancer is the world’s most common cancer in women. Initially, the cancer is little more than a small lump. As long as the cancerous cells remain in the tissue of the breast, relatively little danger emanates from them – they are not able to block essential functions there. But often the cancer is malignant: The cancer cells spread throughout the body and form metastases in vital organs. Early discovery therefore assume an important role – the sooner a tumor is discovered, the more gentle the therapy can be. Accordingly frequent breast screening can save lives.
But thanks to medical progress, more and more women suffering from breast cancer are surviving worldwide. Fujifilm also wants to make their contribution with innovative mammography systems. That’s why Fujifilm is focusing on digitisation to enhance the accuracy of breast cancer diagnosis.
In the early stages of breast cancer, some cells become calcified. Fujifilm’s high-precision and high-resolution mammography system can catch micro-calcifications, evidence that is difficult to detect through visual examination and palpation. Fujifilm’s digital x-ray imaging technology identifies abnormal changes in women’s breasts. Even micro-calcifications are detectable. The system FDR AMULET is designed for a comfortable examination environment for woman.
Moreover Fujifilm is supporting the Pink Ribbon campaign to raise awareness for breast cancer examination. So ask for breast cancer screening today for your future.
