Springhill Offers Women A More Comfortable Mammography Experience

Springhill Medical Center is the only hospital in the area using the new Senographe Pristina™ by GE for the most comfortable mammography experiences our patients can have -- whether it’s our traditional 2D or with 3D Tomosynthesis technology. And, it’s ONLY available in Mobile at Springhill Medical Center!

Designed from the ground up with the input from women, it is the first mammography system to provide women with the “three Cs”: comfort, confidence, and clarity.  The gentle, rounded corners of the image receptor, where the woman places her breasts, completely changes the experience of the traditional mammogram. Women can lean comfortably on the armrests, relaxing their muscles to simplify positioning, compression, and improve image quality.

The Senographe Pristina digital technology delivers superior diagnostic accuracy at the lowest radiation dose of all FDA-approved 3D mammography systems.  Tomosynthesis, or 3D breast imaging, is an advanced technology in the fight against breast cancer that can be added to the regular 2D mammogram for an additional fee.  It allows the radiologist to examine the breast tissue one layer at a time. The 3D imaging system uses high-powered computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of very thin layers or “slices.”
