Hamilton Memorial Hospital hosted an open house April 25 to introduce a new state-of-the-art Hologic 3D mammography service.
The 3D mammography technology is clinically proven to detect 20 percent to 65 percent more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D mammography. This technology, along with new general surgeon, Dr. Rodney Miller, will allow greater access to needed surgical care options and to supplement mammography services.
“Our mission to provide access to quality healthcare for the communities we serve is alive and well at Hamilton Memorial Hospital,” Hamilton Memorial CEO Victoria Woodrow said in a news release. “We are committed to continuing to fulfill this honorable mission everyday, and this is precisely what we are doing with this state of the art technology."
