EASTAR a Pink Ribbon Facility

— EASTAR Health System has received Pink Ribbon Facility designation, according to a media release.

The status was achieved through application to Hologic, The Women’s Health Company.

 EASTAR Health System recently purchased an additional system, a Selenia digital mammography unit, to complement the one already in place.

Digital mammography is different from conventional mammography in how the image of the breast is acquired and, more importantly, viewed. The radiologist can magnify the images, increase or decrease the contrast and invert the black and white values while reading the images.

In addition to the technology, they offer a softer, warmer mammogram by using the MammoPad breast cushion for every patient. MammoPad has been clinically demonstrated to reduce discomfort, associated with mammograms, for most women.

Information: (918) 684-2191.
