Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in their lifetime.
Regardless of family history, the two most common risk factors for breast cancer are: 1. Being a woman and 2. Getting older.
Frankfort Regional Medical Center has acquired a new digital mammography system that enables its physicians to detect and diagnose breast cancer in patients with confidence. The innovative digital system provides outstanding image quality and clear, highly detailed images of the breast. Frankfort Regional's new Senographe® DS full-field digital mammography system acquired from GE Healthcare is the one of the most modern pieces of mammography equipment available to patients today.
The Senographe DS is a full-field digital mammography system designed to help Frankfort Regional Medical Center provide comprehensive mammography patient care - from screening and diagnosis, to interventional procedures. Plus, the system has a patient-centric design and intuitive controls that allow the technologists who perform the exams to focus on the patients, making the mammogram a comfortable and easy experience. For the physician, it provides greater flexibility in viewing the exam and performing biopsies.
