United Hospital System offers Digital Mammography
This year in America, more than 212,920 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. United Hospital System is committed to fighting the battle against this pervasive disease and has acquired new, state-of-the-art digital mammography for its patients. There are many advantages to a digital system. The images are clear and easy to read, and it offers a better view of the breast.
Digital mammography provides physicians with clear and precise all-digital images, rather than images on x-ray film. What’s more, the system provides the largest field of view currently available, which can be extremely helpful for precision imaging of patients with diverse shapes and sizes.
"This is new and powerful technology for the detection and fight against breast cancer," says Dr. Jim Tomic, Radiologist. “Our new digital mammography system allows us to offer our patients state-of-the-art mammograms that are faster and easier than ever before in addition to giving our primary care physicians extremely accurate images to use in diagnosis.”
