Good Samaritan Medical Center part of the Palm Beach Health Network, has announced a new look and new equipment in the redesigned Norma E. & Miles M. Zisson Comprehensive Breast Center of the Palm Beaches.
The Palm Beach Health Network invested nearly a quarter of a million dollars into the center, bringing a sleek and calm aesthetic look, along with some of the newest high-end technology for patients being treated for their breast health.
“As we continue to change the way we treat breast cancer, it is important we continue to keep up with the latest and newest technology, so the residents of Palm Beach County can benefit from getting the very best treatments for their overall breast health,” said Sheri Montgomery, chief executive officer for Good Samaritan Medical Center. “As we have done for over 100 years, our newly redesigned center will continue to provide amazing quality care to the South Florida community.”
Some of the new additions to the center include:
- The Genius 3D Mammography™ exam with Hologic Clarity HD – This technology generates images of the breast that are sharper and even more detailed so a cancer can be detected earlier, when it is easier to treat. It also cuts down on unnecessary follow-up appointments by up to 40% compared to 2D imaging alone. It also produces images quicker so less time for the patient to have their breast under compression
- Affirm Breast Biopsy Guidance System – This system allows doctors to quickly perform 3D breast biopsies on patients and accurately target regions of interest for a breast biopsy assisting in breast cancer detection.
- Supersonic Mach 40 Ultrasound – The Ultrasound system gives the highest resolution images of patients to enhance diagnostic certainty, regardless of tissue density.
“We feel confident that by offering these new technological capabilities it will ensure greater patient care and confidence for those who come in for their yearly mammograms,” said Dr. Elena Rehl, breast surgeon on staff at Good Samaritan Medical Center. “It is so important not to delay care, especially for your annual mammogram. If you have been putting it off, we encourage you to make an appointment today.”
