Imaging Technology News reports that Gritman Medical Center is the first facility in the region to offer Hologic’s C-View, a 3D mammography system. Gritman Medical Center’s Director of Imaging Christin Reisenaur is quoted, “3D was not a financial decision, it was a decision based upon what is the right thing to do for the women we serve, …We knew we were missing breast cancers with 2D mammography, cancers potentially visible with breast tomosynthesis, and that just wasn’t fair to the women of our area”. The report states that the results show that the number of women who came for screenings increased 30 percent, and staff diagnosed five breast cancer cases that would have been undetected with 2D mammography.
