Carney Offers Digital Mammography


 Carney Hospital Now Offers Digital Mammography

Carney Hospital has expanded its services available to women with the addition of a new Selenia™ digital mammography system. 
Digital mammography allows the radiologist to view the x-ray image more closely zeroing in on suspicious or concerning areas, enabling them to make immediate decisions about additional images. Digital mammography takes less than half the time of a traditional film-based mammogram and the radiologist may review the images while the patient is in the examination room.
   “This new technology offers improved visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, the chest wall and in women with dense breast tissue. Digital mammography will allow us to provide our patients with the highest quality of care in the prevention and early detection of breast cancer,” states Carney’s Director of Radiology, Richard Herman, MD.
    In conjunction with the digital mammography unit, Carney Hospital is equipped with the iCAD (computer-aided detection) second look system for mammography. CAD provides a "second read" of the mammogram by a computer that points out or highlights potential areas of concern to the radiologist.
   “Carney Hospital provides a comprehensive scope of services addressing the physical, emotional and educational needs of our female patients. Services include screening programs, diagnosis, intervention, treatment, and management of many different diseases of the breast, and educational and support resources,” says Daniel H. O’Leary, MD, President of Carney.
   Breast MRI is also offered at Carney as part of our comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. Area women now have access to the latest technology right in their own backyard. Each and every patient at Carney receives personalized care designed to meet her individual needs. We are committed to providing exceptional care to the women in our community.
