I’m Taking Charge Like A Lady Boss!

Hello everyone….a really important post here on the SmartCurveTM Breast Stabilization System. What is this? One of the perks of being a blogger and an influencer, is that I get introduced to so many things that otherwise I wouldn’t have. The SmartCurve system is one of them! Let me tell you a little bit about it…..

Good breast health is absolutely essential. I am guilty of letting my check-ups getting a bit behind. Cancer is such a dreadful disease and if there is something out there that is SO EASY and SIMPLE to do to help us take care of ourselves, then we should take advantage and TAKE THE TIME for our check-ups! Preventative screening is the best tool in fighting against cancer!

The SmartCurve is found to be much more comfortable than the traditional flat paddle compression.1 In fact 93% of women say that the SmartCurve is more comfortable.1 It has been clinically proven to give you a more pleasant mammogram and all without compromising the image quality!1 The FEAR that women feel in getting mammograms, is the number one reason why we avoid our check-ups.2

This is what it does….it has a curved surface that mirrors the shape of a woman’s breast, and this reduces the pinching! That pinching can be the worst!!! Not with the SmartCurve! It is available exclusively with Hologic’s Genius TM 3D MammographyTM exam. It is the only mammogram proven to detect more invasive cancers, and also reduces false positives compared to 2D alone.3,4 It’s also FDA approved.5,6

I hope this information has given you some good information and motivation to go get checked with the SmartCurve system!!!!

  1. Thank you Shauna, for hi-lighting the importance of mammograms, in any technological form. Agreed, they are nerve wrecking…but necessary. Science is absolutely gaining & kicking butt on this most horrendous disease.
