EvergreenHealth's Mobile Mammography Coach First in Region to Offer 3D Screenings
Date:9/5/2012

KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EvergreenHealth is bringing the benefits of three-dimensional (3D) mammography screening to communities across the Puget Sound with the addition of tomosynthesis aboard its state-of-the-art mobile mammography coach. EvergreenHealth is the first Seattle-area healthcare organization to offer the mobile 3D-screening technology, and its mobile coach is the only one of its kind in the Western United States.

EvergreenHealth first introduced 3D mammography to its Kirkland-based Breast Health Center in 2011 and now, thanks to generous community contributions and fundraising efforts by the EvergreenHealth Foundation, it is pleased to add its third unit to its mobile coach to take this advanced technology out into our community.

"We owe endless gratitude to the generous contributions from the community that make this breakthrough care more accessible to women across the region," said Bob Malte, CEO of EvergreenHealth. "We're proud to be a leader in bringing innovative diagnostic tools to our communities and look forward to continuing to serve Eastside residents with the most advanced clinical care."

Tomosynthesis uses digital imaging to create a full three-dimensional reconstruction of the breast, allowing radiologists to detect breast tissue abnormalities at the earliest stages. The 3D-screening unit generates a stack of images of one-millimeter-thin layers of the breast tissue. Instead of viewing all the complexities of the breast in one flat image, radiologists examine the tissue one millimeter at a time, making fine details more clearly visible.

In addition to the improvement in diagnostic accuracy with 3D-imaging, all patients in the Breast Health Center and the mobile coach receive the MammoPad, and experience a more comfortable mammogram.

"Since we can't prevent breast cancer yet, tomosynthesis is the most advanced tool available to us to help detect breast cancer at its earli
