New breast cancer screening technology has arrived in Yakima. News partner KIMA Action News reports the Ohana Mammography Center recently installed the new digital equipment.

The upgrade cost more than a million dollars for two machines. They give doctors clearer images and it is faster than a traditional mammogram. Doctors also do not have to wait for the film to develop. The new machines emit about a one-third less radiation than traditional machines.

Ohana is part of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.
