Slotted paddle edge distributes pressure more evenly

Fujifilm's Comfort Paddle distributes pressure that is normally concentrated on the thickest part of the breast, helping to compress evenly along the natural curve of the breast with appropriate — but not excessive — force.

Tilting paddle mechanism for more gradual and even compression



The Comfort Paddle allows for gradual application of pressure to the breast as compared to standard compression. The tilting of the paddle toward the nipple side allows for more even compression across the breast, helping to separate structures and maintain correct positioning.
