State of the art equipment which could help with early diagnosis for breast cancer comes to South Coast community
The 3D Mammogram system added to Ojai Valley Community Hospital produces sharper 3D images and detects more invasive cancer than 2D mammography.
It’s some of the latest technology in screening for breast cancer.
The addition of a technologically advanced mammography system to the Ojai Valley was made possible thanks to $100,000 in proceeds from the Ojai Valley Community Hospital Foundation Guild’s annual Nightingale gala fundraising event and an additional $20,000 from the Swift Foundation.
The top-of-the-line system produces sharper 3D images and detects significantly more invasive cancer than 2D mammography, Ulrike Hayward, MD, told KCLU.
Those interested in scheduling a breast screening with the Hologic 3Dimensions Mammography System at Ojai Valley Community Hospital can call 805-646-1401 for an appointment or talk to their doctor for more information.
