Community members gathered at the new Women's Imaging Center located on the first floor of St. Claire Regional (SCR) for an open house on Sunday, August 14. A guided tour of the center provided guests with an opportunity to receive education on the Women's Imaging Center's state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and experience the newly designed stress-free environment that was developed to provide women a more comfortable place to have diagnostic screenings performed. Door prizes included salon and spa services donated by Expressions Salon and Renew Therapeutic Massage as well as free screening mammogram certificates provided by SCR.
The new center offers same day, immediate diagnostic screening results provided by one of SCR's three on-staff, experienced radiologists. "We are extremely proud of our new Women's Imaging Center," says Valerie Campbell, SCR Director of Marketing and Public Relations. "We hope that the new private and comfortable environment will encourage more women to be proactive and get routine, preventative screenings."
St. Claire Regional's new Women's Imaging Center features digital mammography which provides clearer images than traditional mammography allowing radiologists to focus more closely on any areas of concern. The center also includes bone density testing (used to detect osteoporosis), breast ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsy.
