February 28, 2018 -- Mammography technology developer Sigmascreening is highlighting its mammography self-compression paddle at ECR 2018.

The Sensitive Sigma paddle calculates the pressure to achieve an optimal compression range based on breast size and tissue stiffness, according to the company. The device received the CE Mark last year and is being used at breast screening centers and hospitals across Europe.

The paddle has also recently been approved for use by the Reference Center Mammography North in Bremen, Germany, and the Agency for Healthcare for the Belgian breast cancer screening program, according to Sigmascreening.
