Womenís health care needs are unique. From delivering a child to having an annual mammogram, a woman faces a myriad of health challenges during her life. For the women of Walker County, Huntsville Memorial Hospital offers a variety of specialized services to address, diagnose and treat their health conditions.
Not only has HMH received the distinction of becoming a Pink Ribbon facility with this new technology, but multiple benefits will be received by every woman when it is time for their annual breast exam.
“Pink Ribbon” designation comes to healthcare facilities that offer women the combination of digital mammography coupled with a softer mammogram through the use of MammoPad technology.
Digital mammography enables physicians to view a clearer and easily enhanced mammogram, while MammoPad provides a softer, warmer mammogram for every woman. MammoPad has been clinically demonstrated to reduce discomfort for women during the compression portion of the exam.
NO MORE EXCUSES
The discomfort women feel during mammography compression is widely known to be the reason that many women donít get regular screenings. In addition to compression, the cold surfaces and hard edges of the mammography de4vice can make the experience uncomfortable for some patients. The MammoPad has provided a great source of comfort during the procedure.
