Mammopad breast cushions are soft, warm single-use foam pads. They are placed between the patient and the surface of the mammography device, resulting in a softer more comfortable mammogram. Clinical studies show three out of four women experience an average of 50% decrease in discomfort and at the Avon Breast Center, we offer this to all of our patients, even on our Mammovan!!! http://www.mammopad.com/info/what-is-mammopad.html
