Cabell Huntington Hospital adds 3D mammography system

HUNTINGTON -- Cabell Huntington Hospital's Breast Health Center now offers patients the Selenia Dimensions 3D digital mammography system from Hologic. The Selenia system provides patients with breast imaging called tomosynthesis, which helps physicians identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue.

Breast cancer screening with 3D digital mammography offers a diagnostic tool for physicians that supports more confident diagnoses and saves time, reducing the need for callbacks for additional imaging and can help patients get results more quickly.

To schedule a 3D digital mammogram at the Cabell Huntington Hospital Breast Health Center, call 304-526-2270.
