New Breast Screening Machines Give Doctors Faster and Cleaner Images
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.
