Digital Mammography

A powerful new tool for early detection of breast cancer

  • Date: 7/9/2010

Lead Mammography Technologist Kerry DeStefano R.T.(R) (M), assists a BID-Needham patient during a mammography exam on the new Senographe Digital Mammography system from GE Healthcare.
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham (BID-Needham) is advancing its fight against breast cancer with a new digital mammography system. This powerful tool provides physicians with the largest field of view currently available and more precise mammograms, particularly for women with dense breasts.
"The advantages of this new digital system include clear, easy-to-read images that are ready to read within 10 seconds and can be sent electronically to a consulting physician virtually instantaneously," said Breast Care Center radiologist Julie Armada, MD. "This new advanced system, the Senographe Digital Mammography system from GE Healthcare, is the same equipment found throughout the Beth Israel Deaconess network allowing direct and immediate comparison to digital mammograms done anywhere within the network."
In addition to advanced digital mammography, BID-Needham provides comprehensive breast imaging including breast ultrasound and breast MRI evaluations. BID-Needham is affiliated with the Breast Care Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston which provides patients with referrals as needed. Appointments can be conveniently scheduled in Needham six days a week, including Saturdays and some evenings.
