Myth: All mammograms are painful.

Fact: SmartCurve is curved for comfort.

Outdated, flat compression systems used by many providers are known to cause pain and discomfort in many women. Washington Radiology, however, uses a revolutionary comfort technology called SmartCurve, which is curved to match the shape of a woman's breast. Research has shown that 93% of women who have experienced pain with traditional compression systems reported increased comfort with a SmartCurve mammogram.
