BroMenn Hospitals Add Digital Mammography

Women who undergo routine mammograms at Eureka Community Hospital (ECH) and BroMenn Regional Medical Center (BRMC) now have the latest diagnostic technology available to them via each hospital's state-of-the-art SeleniaTM digital mammography system.

From the patient's point of view, a digital mammogram is like a traditional film screen mammogram.  However, a digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert the x-ray energy into a digital image.

Radiologists can view and manipulate these images on high-resolution computer screens that enhance visualization of the structures within the breast tissue.  They can also adjust contrast and brightness, and zoom in on specific areas to help detect small calcifications, masses and other changes that may be signs of early cancer.

Digital mammography offers a number of other practical advantages and patient conveniences.  Because there is no waiting for film to be developed, it can reduce the time patients spend at their mammogram appointment, and can eliminate the need for repeat exams due to over- or under-exposed film.  Digital images are easily stored and transferred electronically.

The SeleniaTM unit offers the largest detector size available, accommodating almost all breast sizes with a single exposure.

For more information, contact Eureka Community Hospital at 309-467-2371, or BroMenn Women's Center in Normal, 309-268-2661.
