The new comfort paddle will reduce patient’s pain by allowing technologists to ensure even compression of the breast.

The comfort paddle fits to the shape of the breast, while holding the breast securely and ensuring the tissue is separated.

The new product is now available with the Aspire HD Plus and Aspire Cristalle.

Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Women’s Health CR director of marketing David Hotchkiss said the company is pleased to highlight its significant advances in mammography at RSNA this year.

"With the introduction of the Aspire Comfort Paddle, Fujifilm continues to be at the forefront in breast health screening and diagnostic tools providing exceptional image quality and measureable improvements that enhance the patient experience," Hotchkiss added.
