Do You Know a Healthcare Game Changer?
Mammograms Just Got More Comfortable At Boca Raton Regional Hospital
GE Healthcare (NYSE: GE) has collaborated with Boca Raton Regional Hospital to bring a more comfortable mammography system, Senographe Pristinaâ„¢ to patients with next-generation 3D digital mammography technology. Boca Raton Regional Hospital is the first installation of Senographe Pristina in the U.S.

"Senographe Pristina offer patients a reinvented mammography experience, one that had not significantly changed for the last 40 years," said Kathy Schilling, MD, Medical Director at the Hospital's Christine E. Lynn Women's Health & Wellness Institute.

"After having a mammogram on Senographe Pristina, women immediately recognize a pleasant difference: it's a faster and quieter exam with greater comfort and less pain during compression."

Commenting further, Dr. Schilling noted, "Our goal is for all our baseline patients to have their mammograms with this new technology with the intent that it will help to dismiss any preconceived fears and encourage more compliance with annual screening."
