NRMC BREAST CENTER EXPANDS 3D MAMMOGRAPHY SERVICES …

In 2020, with the generous support of the NRMC Foundation, the hospital purchased a state of the art 3-D Mammography machine for the brand new, spa-like NRMC Breast Center. Now in 2021, the hospital has expanded services once again with the addition of a second 3-D mammography suite.

“We are extremely pleased to announce that another 3-D mammography suite is now open,” explained Derek Anthony, NRMC Radiology Manager. “This will allow even more access for women in the community to get care close to home. Using Hologic’s Genius 3-D mammography technology, radiologists are able to view highly detailed breast tissue images layer by layer and find cancers while they are still extremely small,” he explained.

For women with dense breasts, 3-D mammography is highly effective in finding early stage tumors. “With breast cancer affecting so many people in our region, we want to get the word out about this state-of-the-art technology and the importance of annual mammograms,” Anthony stressed. “One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. We want women to know and understand that early detection saves lives.”

Conveniently located on the first floor of the hospital, the Breast Center offers convenient scheduling. Patients no longer need a doctor’s order or referral for their annual screening mammogram. It just takes one quick phone call to set up an appointment  —  just call 318.214.4265.
