Women who undergo routine mammogram's at CCH Women's Imaging Center now have the latest diagnostic technology available to them, digital mammography. Clay County Hospital is the first healthcare provider in the our area to feature the state-of- the- art system, Selenia™ digital mammography together with the breast cushion, MammoPad�, from Hologic™.
We are very excited to be able to offer the newest technology for breast cancer detection. Digital mammography is different from conventional mammography
in how the image of the breast is acquired and, more importantly, viewed. The radiologist can magnify the images, increase or decrease the contrast and invert the black and white values while reading the images. These features allow the radiologist to evaluate micro calcifications and focus on areas of concern.
Selenia digital mammography offers a number of other practical advantages and patient conveniences. Because there is no waiting for film to be developed, it can significantly reduce the time patients spend in the breast center, as well as reduce the need for repeat exams due to under or over exposure. Digital images are easily stored and transferred electronically, eliminating the dependency on one set of original films, which can be misfiled or lost in transit.
All of these features right here year round at CCH in our New PINK RIBBON FACILITY
