ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WECT) – Bladen County Hospital’s new digital mammography unit has received full accreditation from the American College of Radiology, according to a news release.
The hospital reportedly offers the county’s only digital mammography services through the Women’s Diagnostic Center. The service has been available to the public since March.
“We are so pleased to have received full accreditation so quickly,” said Mindy Goldsmith, CRA, Director of Radiology, in a news release. “We have had a great response from patients with this new technology.”
Digital mammography uses digital images rather than traditional film images. The digital images are screened by a Computer-Aided Detection system that detects small anomalies or suspicious growths that may go unnoticed with traditional film.
To schedule a digital mammogram, call the Women’s Diagnostic Center at 910-862-1131.
