New look and New Equipment Comprehensive Breast Center of the Palm BeachesJun 5, 2022
As seen on WPTV, we are unveiling our new look and new equipment to the community 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 the hospital continues to change the way we treat breast cancer, it is important for it to 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. As Good Samaritan has done for over 100 years, the newly redesigned center will continue to provide high quality care.
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.
These new technological capabilities will ensure greater patient care and confidence for those who come in for their yearly mammograms. 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.
The Norma E. & Miles M. Zisson Comprehensive Breast Center of the Palm Beaches brings together a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists and allied health professionals, advanced technology and cancer resources so patients and their families may receive a comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and support services.
