Coshocton, Ohio (March 8, 2021) — Coshocton Regional Medical Center is excited to announce the addition of a state-of-the-art 3D Mammography system. The Senographe Pristina has high image quality and low dose imaging (the lowest dose of all 3D FDA-approved systems vs FFDM). This upgrade will produce clearer images that will make it easier for doctors to catch breast cancer early. New comfort features help decrease pain and reduce anxiety associated with the exam.
“Along with the upgraded image quality, we hope that this new system will encourage women to be more compliant with screening guidelines, so they don’t skip their mammograms,” said Lisa Jackson, the Chief Nursing Officer at Coshocton Regional Medical Center. “Mammograms are a critical part of maintaining a healthy life, and we want it to be a comfortable experience for women.”
The Senographe Pristina also offers other comfort features including rounded corners instead of sharp edges that used to poke patients’ ribs, a thinner and warmer image detector that creates less hard, cold material touching the patient, and comfortable armrests for women to lean on instead of conventional handgrips so women can relax their muscles during the exam which simplifies positioning, compression and image acquisition.
Patients can call Coshocton Regional Medical Center at (740) 623-4446 to schedule their mammogram.
