Pristina Dueta™ is the first wireless remote-control device that allows patients to control their own breast compression during a mammogram with the guidance of a technician. Patients can adjust the compression to the level that feels right for them – helping reduce discomfort, which is one of the main reasons women avoid mammography screening. It is designed to minimize patients’ pain and discomfort by giving them an active role in the application of compression. It empowers women to be involved in their exam while a technician guides the process. Pristina Dueta™ is proven to produce images of similar quality compared to traditional mammograms. This technology helps decrease pain associated with the exam, improves the patient experience and improves outcomes for breast cancer screening.
