POSITIONING AID FOR CRANIOCAUDAL & MEDIOLATERAL OBLIQUE VIEWS
- Demonstrates spot-compression procedures
- Sensitivity training for patient comfort
- Helpful in training male students (eliminating loaded vests to simulate breasts)
A molded gel provides realistic compressibility. Mammograms are taken at a breast thickness of 5-cm, using normal technical factors. The breast is mounted on a post with adjustments for height and the angles needed for various views.
A small indicator box is placed next to the breast to signal when the 5-cm breast thickness is reached. Patient discomfort is signaled by a red warning light which informs the trainee that the pain level can be reached at about this compression. The light is actuated 5-mms before the dead stop produced by the box. This procedure emphasizes the care needed for patients when the pain zone is reached.
