Evergreen Hospital Launches Revolutionary Breast Cancer Detection and Diagnostic Imaging Technology
Date:7/28/2011

KIRKLAND, Wash., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Evergreen Hospital today announced that revolutionary three-dimensional mammography imaging technology, known as tomosynthesis, is now available for patient appointments at the Evergreen Breast Center, which is the only comprehensive breast center in the Seattle area to offer the breakthrough screening and diagnosis technology.

The tomosynthesis screening experience is similar to that of a traditional mammogram, but the new technology's superior 3-D imaging allows for more precise readings that reduce the need for follow-up appointments by up to 40 percent.  

Evergreen also provides a softer and warmer mammography experience thanks to the MammoPad, an ergonomic cushion that leads to 50 percent less discomfort for most patients.
