Just curious, tsq
...did your physician use a tunneling mammography machine on you? I don't know if that's the official, accurate name for the imaging system but at the time my mom passed away four years ago(thankfully it wasn't from breast or any other form of cancer) her breast care specialist was about to acquire a new model of mammography imager/machine called a "tunneling imager" or something along those lines. It was supposed to be more comfortable and easier for the woman and, I believe, require less time to acquire a clear and readable image.
might know something about these "tunneling" mammography machines as well. I was just curious. If you guys don't know or can't remember that's cool. My mom never got the opportunity to use one of them and I always wondered if they were indeed faster and more comfortable.
