Dr. Mark Luedke, director of radiology at Monadnock Community Hospital, tells the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript about the hospital’s new Hologic 3D Mammography machine, also known as breast tomosynthesis, and explains to the newspaper about how mammography has evolved.
University of Colorado Hospital’s mobile mammography coach received a 3D mammography upgrade, and UCHealth Central Insider reports on the improvement.
3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, is already offered at the hospital and in Lone Tree. “We wanted to offer that same standard of care to our mobile patients, and we should,” Dana Knapp, manager of mammography at UCH, explains to the publication.
“BOYNTON BEACH, Fl., September 26, 2013 – Bethesda Women’s Health Center is using the Selenia® Dimensions® breast tomosynthesis system made by Hologic, a world leader in digital mammography.

The earlier a cancer is detected, the sooner it can be treated—and beat!”
