    @Thomas Yes, this system gives a clearer image and utilizes "3D" (3D in this sense means getting different angles of X-Ray images which helps determine if the spot is suspicious or is clearly a calcium deposit). A Mammo often highlights an area of concern and then there is usually follow up imaging (either MRI or US), there is also often a biopsy where they take a tissue sample of the area of concern, and the Pristina also is capable of assisting the needle placement for the biopsy.

    The best way to avoid breast cancer seems to be a vegetarian diet and a 30 minute walk a day. In Kenya breast cancer 30-40 times less likely than here. They do not eat much meat. They do have other health issues, but this is a huge difference. I suspect a little fish ok too.

    Does this machine do anything to help prevent the overdiagnosis of breast cancer? Does it distiguish non-malignant tumors or non-life-threatening cancers from the real deal?
