St. Luke's Jerome New Digital Mammography Machine
Jerome (ID) (KMVT, KTWT-TV)
St. Lukes Jerome announces the upcoming installation of a Hologic digital mammography unit at the hospital.
Digital technology images enhance image quality and improve diagnostic outcomes. It also decreases wait times.
This allows for early detection of any abnormalities even with women with dense breast tissue.
Idaho ranks low for mammograms or breast ultrasound exams.
Women who can't afford the exam can get help by calling St. Luke's Jerome.
An open house is coming up in March for people to learn more about the machine, the process, ask questions and learn how important early detection is.
For more information watch the full interview with Dr. Michael Dixon and Terry Rowe.
