Don’t Forget to Schedule Your Annual Mammogram

May 2, 2008

Reminding your mother, sister or a friend to schedule their annual mammogram is one of the best ways to tell them that you care about their health and well-being. Mammography is the gold standard for the early detection of breast cancer, and with digital mammography and an all-private setting available at Floyd Memorial’s Women’s Imaging Center, the experience will be one you’ll want to share.

  • Exceptional image quality: The hospital’s digital MAMMOMAT Novation DR system offers better image quality than film mammography, and it allows the radiologist the flexibility to magnify areas for a closer look as well as flag any area of concern for further analyzation. All mammograms are also processed through the hospital’s I-CAD, a computer detection system that doublechecks images for small calcifications or areas of concern.
  • Greater comfort: Women no longer need to fear the discomfort often associated with getting a mammogram. Floyd Memorial is a certified provider of MammoPad, a soft, disposable cushion placed on the bottom of the plate to keep your skin from touching the metal of the equipment and to provide additional support and comfort. MammoPads are provided for all patients at no additional cost.
  • Private convenient setting: To make your visit as pleasant as possible, we have developed a private atmosphere that offers point-ofservice registration, a private waiting room, spacious dressing rooms and an all-female staff. For added convenience, we offer evening and Saturday appointments.
  • More than mammography: The Women’s Imaging Center offers the perfect setting for all your imaging needs including ultrasound, DEXA scans for osteoporosis, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast MR.
