Digital Mammography

A Better Image of Breast Health 

Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital’s Imaging Department now offers the most advanced digital mammography technology for breast cancer detection. Each year, more than 200,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer.
The American Cancer Society supports screening exams, such as mammograms, to help detect changes in a women’s breast in the early stages and to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Women age 40 and older should have a clinical breast exam every year and screening mammogram once every one to two years. Breast cancer screenings with mammograms reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer in women ages 50 to 69.

KCCMH’s newly installed, state-of-the-art system, Selenia™ digital mammography machine from Hologic®, is designed to use the lowest radiation dose possible to deliver exceptional sharp digital images that can help detect suspicious breast lesions and abnormalities. During the mammogram, a radiologist magnifies images, increases or decreases the contrast, and inverts the black and white values while reading the images.
