F.A.S.T. Paddle

The LRCB compared the F.A.S.T. paddle (flexible) and the standard paddle (rigid).

This study demonstrates that the standard paddle is preferred. The article about this study, Comparison of a flexible versus a rigid breast compression paddle: pain experience, projected breast area, radiation dose and technical image quality, has been published in European Radiology. To illustrate the results, a selection of examples can be viewed in an animation.
