Women who undergo routine mammograms at Anson Community Hospital’s Women’s Imaging Center now have the latest diagnostic technology available to them, digital mammography. Anson Community Hospital is now among the top healthcare providers in the region featuring the state-of-the-art system, Selenia™ digital mammography from Hologic™.
Anson Community Hospital is 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 microcalcifications and focus on areas of concern.
By offering women the latest technology in mammography, the hospital hopes to increase the number of women in Anson county who follow recommendations for regular screenings.
