Digital mammography now available in Fremont
The new Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital Women’s Diagnostic Center, which features digital mammography, bone density (DEXA) scanning, is now open for business at Memorial Hospital in Fremont.
The center was constructed in existing hospital space on the north side of the building near the cashier's office. The 1,200 square-foot space will was completely renovated. The center was designed with patient privacy and comfort at its core.
According to Bonnie Reeves, Memorial Health Care System Chief Operating Officer, “Having digital mammography available to the women of Fremont will greatly benefit the community. Many women who drove to other health care systems outside of Sandusky County will now be able to stay in town for their comprehensive health care needs.”
According to cancer.gov, digital mammography gives women, especially those under the age of 50, significantly better results. Digital mammography can also detect cancer in women under 50 sooner than film mammography. Having the mammogram as a digital file also allows the image to be manipulated more easily, lending to more precise view of it.
Pat Standish, R.T.R.M., examines the new digital mammography machine at Memorial Hospital.
