MDH Radiology uses innovative IT systems developed by mammography market leaders to fit our unique multi-tiered delivery model. Through our strategic alliances, we are able to offer the most advanced imaging and screening tools available in the field today.
Relationships include integrated software for breast imaging with tomosynthesis reading capabilities, breast density assessment (Volpara™), MRI CAD (Merge CADstream™), and digital reporting and tracking (PenRad™). Additional alliances provide breast cushions (MammoPad®) and breast biopsy transportable services (United Medical Systems®).
Volpara™ Breast Density Assessment
A software system that analyzes digital mammograms to yield a standardized, objective, and reproducible measurement of breast density. Provides a volumetric assessment of tissue density by defining the amount of fat within a given volume of breast tissue. The value over time remains constant regardless of the mammography machine used. The sensitivity of mammograms may be compromised in women with high breast density.

MammoPad® Breast Cushions
A breast cushion providing a more comfortable, softer mammogram experience for patients and improved image quality. By reducing discomfort, MammoPad allows women to relax during their mammograms, making it easier for the technician to position the breast for optimal imaging. The unique surface holds the breast tissue in place and because they are radiolucent, do not impact dosing or impair the quality of the image.
