Memorial uses the latest digital mammography technology to provide extremely high resolution images of internal breast tissue. Memorial is also a certified softer mammogram provider and provides every woman with a MammoPad®.
We also utilize an R2 Mammography Computer Aided Diagnosis system to analyze all mammography images. The R2 system places a digital marker on suspicious areas of the image to alert the Radiologist during the interpretation phase. R2 acts as a second set of eyes and increases the detection rate of small lesions by the Radiologist by up to 13 percent.
A Mammogram is an X-ray test of the breasts used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump.
Many small tumors can be seen on a mammogram before they can be felt by a woman or her health professional. Cancer is most easily treated and cured when it is discovered in an early stage. At Memorial, you can rest assured that all digital screening and diagnostic mammograms are read by a board certified radiologist with over 25 years of experience.
Digital mammography services are provided at two convenient locations includng the Memorial Diagnostic Center at 100 Health Park Drive in Owosso and the main hospital at 826 W. King in Owosso.The Diagnostic Imaging department at Memorial Healthcare provides the latest imaging services including digital mammography and ultrasound services to all Michigan residents including the counties of Shiawassee, Eaton, Ingham, Saginaw, Genesee, Clinton. We are proud to offer the latest imaging services to communities surrounding Alma, Bay City, Flint, Lansing, Owosso, Saginaw and St. Johns.
