New 3D mammography installed

HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese recently installed a new state-of-the-art Genius™ 3D Mammography™ machine by Hologic, Inc., to offer additional peace to mind to women in the area. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers while also decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing. St. Joseph’s Hospital radiology colleagues shown with the new unit are (left to right) Michele Diekemper, RT (R); Cheryl Rakers, RT (R); Mary Siebert, RT (R); Chris Huelskamp, RT (R); and Renee Kohrmann, RT (R).
