3D Mammography

According to national statistics, one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time in their lives. At Coshocton Hospital, we’re dedicated to giving you access to the technology – 3D Mammography – that can provide early and accurate diagnosis to help give you the best options for recovery

The 3D Mammography system, the Senographe Pristina, has high image quality and low dose imaging (the lowest dose of all 3D FDA-approved systems vs FFDM). This upgrade will produce clearer images that will make it easier for doctors to catch breast cancer early. New comfort features help decrease pain and reduce anxiety associated with the exam.

The Senographe Pristina also offers other comfort features including rounded corners instead of sharp edges that used to poke patients’ ribs, a thinner and warmer image detector that creates less hard, cold material touching the patient and comfortable armrests for women to lean on instead of conventional handgrips so women can relax their muscles during the exam which simplifies positioning, compression and image acquisition.
