What is the difference between a Digital mammogram and a Film mammogram?

 Both types of mammograms require and XRay of the breast and compression of the breast.  With traditional mammograms, the XRay is imaged on film.  Digital mammogramy involves converting the XRay image into a digital image.  Think of the difference between a film camera and a digital camera.  With digital mammography, the images are sharper and thereby more detailed.  We are using digital mammagraphy at Advanced Breast Care.
