  •  Rome Memorial Hospital’s Breast Imaging Center of Excellence now has two 3D Mammography Units

    Rome Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Imaging Center has added a second 3D mammography machine and expanded appointment hours to offer more options than ever for women to have routine breast screenings or image guided breast biopsies. Rome Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Imaging Center is an American College of Radiology (ACR) designated Breast Center of Excellence.
    The Women’s Imaging Center offers a variety of mammography appointment hours to meet the needs of busy women:
    ■ Everyday appointments 7:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday
    ■ Extended hours as early as 6:30 a.m. or as late as 7:00 p.m. during the week
    ■ Frequent Saturday availability from 7:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
    For availability of extended weekday and weekend appointments, call the Centralized Scheduling Office at 315.338.7338.
    Images produced by 3D mammography have been proven better at locating breast cancers while they are still small and more easily treatable, 3D images allow radiologists to better pinpoint the size, shape and location of breast abnormalities for women of all ages and breast densities.
    Rome Memorial Hospital is the only facility in the area that can perform needle biopsies guided by the clarity of 3D mammography images. The 3D mammography equipment used at the Women’s Imaging Center is the lowest dose system available and does not require any more breast compression than a traditional 2D exam.
    The Women’s Imaging Center at Rome Memorial Hospital received designation as an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by earning ACR accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy) and breast MRI. Being named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence acknowledges the Women’s Imaging Center’s high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
