Women in east-central Kansas now have the most advanced mammography system available. Coffey County Hospital now offers Hologic’s state-of-the-art Genius™ 3D Mammography™ Exam for patients.


Learn more about 3D Mammography™ at the next installment of Coffey Health System’s Lunch & Learn program at noon on Friday, March 15. With more than 120 years of combined experience, Coffey County Hospital mammography technologists will introduce 3D technology and discuss the benefits of early detection. Hologic representative Peggy Sanders will also be present to discuss the new system and answer questions.

A 3D Mammography™ exam is performed similarly to a 2D mammogram, adding only seconds onto the examination length. The new screening technology provides a three-dimensional image of the breast using several low-dose X-ray images from different angles. Providers are able to see a clearer, more detailed image of breast tissue allowing for earlier detection of breast cancer.

The women in and around Coffey County no longer need to travel to have the latest level of mammography.  It is here,” states Radiology Supervisor Scott Sutherland. “Our 3D system is proven to detect 20 percent – 65 percent more invasive breast cancers compared to the 2D mammogram.”

While breast imaging is primarily used by women, men are also encouraged to attend this informational session. The American Cancer Society estimates that 2,670 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2019. Men can also play an important role in encouraging mammograms for the women in their lives.

The noon presentation takes place in Coffey County Hospital’s Allen Woods 2 conference room. Attendance and lunch are free. Seating is limited, so register today by calling Virginia DuBuke at (620) 364-2121 Ext. 4174. Evening callers may leave a voice-mail including their name, telephone and the number of people wanting to attend. Reservations are also taken online at www.coffeyhealth.org .
