Author: WestKyStar Staff

Beginning in March, Murray-Calloway County Hospital began offering Low Dose Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams from Hologic, a global leader in breast cancer detection.

On Thursday, April 25th at 3 pm, a Grand Opening of the Advanced Imaging area will be held in the South Tower Radiology Department. 

Community members are invited to attend and tour the new area. Guests will also have the opportunity to tour the Radiology Dept. and learn about the latest in imaging advancements. An official ribbon cutting hosted by the Chamber of Commerce will take place at 3:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Low Dose Genius 3D Mammography ™ exams are an advanced type of digital mammogram that offer better cancer detection, fewer call backs, minimal compression time and greater peace of mind at a dose comparable to a conventional digital mammogram.

Large clinical studies have demonstrated the positive benefits of Low Dose 3D Mammography ™ exams including:
• Earlier detection of small breast cancers that may be hidden in a conventional mammogram
• Greater accuracy in pinpointing size, shape and location of abnormalities
• Fewer unnecessary biopsies or additional tests
• Greater likelihood of detecting multiple breast tumors
• Clearer images of dense breast tissue
• Maintained 3D Mammography™ exam performance, at a 2D-like dose

Low Dose Genius 3D Mammography™ exams are recommended for women of all ages and breast densities.
