Alvarado Hospital added another service it can offer to the community.
The hospital has a new advanced Mammography Suite featuring the powerful
Siemens Mammomat Inspiration mammogram with “PRIME Technology”
that’s designed to enhance scanned images in high definition for
the diagnostician. “The Mammography suite itself is designed to
be as comfortable and inviting as we can make it for our patients,”
explains Sandy Gergen, Director of Imaging Services. “The process
of getting a mammogram is not the most pleasant experience, so we went
out of our way to decorate the suite with comfortable furniture and inviting
An important component of the Mammography Suite is the addition of the
Kubtec Xpert40 Specimen Radiography system. This allows for the immediate
examination of tissue excised from a patient directly from surgery without
having to send the patient off-campus to a third-party pathology lab.
This saves the patient a tremendous amount of time and inconvenience.
