Hunterdon Women’s Imaging Center features leading-edge technology in a tranquil environment. All of our diagnostic testing is performed with the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology. Hunterdon Medical Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology as a nationally approved Mammography and Ultrasound Center. In addition, Hunterdon Medical Center is the only Breast Center in Hunterdon County to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
We are now offering our patients a new option in mammograms: the Senographe Pristina™. Designed from the ground up with input from women, it is the first mammography system to provide women with the “three Cs”: comfort, confidence, and clarity. The design of the Senographe Pristina changes the stance of the traditional mammogram. Instead of tensing their pectoral muscles while grabbing the traditional handgrips – which can make it hard to acquire high quality images – women can lean comfortably on the armrests, relaxing their muscles to simplify positioning, compression, and improve image quality. The image receptor is also thinner than the previous design, so it doesn’t jab into a woman’s ribs. The design also improves the technician’s workflow, which improves patient positioning that could lead to faster, more precise exams.
Senographe Pristina also uses 3D technology, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis. 3D technology delivers superior diagnostic accuracy at the same low dose as a 2D mammography exam, the lowest patient dose of all FDA-approved 3D mammography systems. The technology uses a low-dose short X-ray “sweep” around the positioned breast with nine exposures acquired with a “step-and-shoot” method. This helps remove any movement of the x-ray tube, reducing blur and increasing image sharpness.
