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 introduction of tomosynthesis helps us stay at the forefront of important technological advances in breast-health screening and diagnostic tools," said Dr. Kara Carlson, medical director of the Evergreen Breast Center.

Tomosynthesis benefits all screening and diagnostic mammography patients, and is especially valuable for women receiving a baseline screening, women who are 40 to 60 years old, those who have dense breast tissue and women with a personal history of breast cancer.

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.

The new technology is part of the comprehensive breast-health services offered by the Evergreen Breast Center and is available to all screening and diagnostic patients.  All patients can request a tomosynthesis screening appointment at the Evergreen Breast Center beginning this week, and may also schedule Sa
