Women in east-central Kansas now have the most advanced mammography system available. Coffey County Hospital now offers Hologic's state-of-the-art Genius™ 3D Mammography™.
A 3D Mammography™ exam is performed similarly to a 2D mammogram, adding only seconds onto the examination length. The new screening technology provides a three-dimensional image of the breast using several low-dose x-ray images from different angles. Providers are able to see a clearer, more detailed image of breast tissue allowing for earlier detection of breast cancer.
Coffey County Hospital’s mammography department is fully accreditated by the American College of Radiology. Accreditation assures that staff, equipment, processes, and image quality at Coffey County Hospital meet the ACR’s stringent requirements for patient care.
Coffey County Hospital has four certified mammography technologists: Lynn Bolen, Melinda Chiroy, Mary Ann Magnuson, and June Martin-Reno.
Statistics show that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. This statistic drives our mammography team to maintain a high degree of excellence, with the ultimate goal being early detection for our patients.
Coffey Health System encourages annual mammograms beginning at age 40. Women with a family history of breast cancer should visit with their physician about earlier mammograms.
To schedule a mammogram, call (620) 364-2121.
