Pella Regional Offers Mammograms with SmartCurve™ System
PELLA, Iowa – Pella Regional Health Center now offers mammograms with the SmartCurve™ breast stabilization system that provides greater comfort than mammograms with standard compression technology. The curved design of the compression device mirrors the shape of a woman’s breast to reduce pinching and applies uniform compression over the entire breast for added comfort.
Mammograms are a women’s best defense in detecting breast cancer early, but the fear of pain causes many women to delay scheduling their annual mammogram. “With the new SmartCurve™ system, we hope more women will not only schedule their annual mammograms in a timely manner, but have a better experience overall,” said Marilou Ozinga, Medical Imaging Supervisor, at Pella Regional.
The American Cancer Society recommends yearly mammograms after age 40. To schedule a mammogram, please call 641-628-6620.
