To celebrate the addition of our new 3D Mammography machine, the community-at-large is invited to a ribbon-cutting and open house event at 12 noon, Tuesday, January 21 at the Capital Mammography clinic (Ste. 401 – fourth floor, Physicians’ Pavilion; 3920 Capital Mall Dr. SW).
Join us as we unveil the new machine to the community for the first time. The event will feature speakers, a blessing, gift basket raffle, cake, refreshments and a tour to follow.
“Adding to our dedicated breast ultrasound room and bone density machine, we’re extremely excited to be able to offer this wonderful, state-of-the-art, low-dose 3D mammography technology to our community,” says Mardi Folsom, Capital Mammography Lead Technologist. “This machine is designed by women for women and is designed to pick up smaller cancers more efficiently that can lead to better health for our mothers, daughters and sisters.”
The new machine, a GE Senographe Pristina, is the only FDA-approved 3D mammography machine that delivers at the same low dose as current 2D full-field digital mammography.
Such technology results in improved patient comfort as well as an exceptionally sharp and detailed picture for breast cancer detection.
Opportunities for patients to receive new 3D machine screenings begin January 22; walk-ins resume Jan. 27.
