Breast Healthcare Center
At USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, we believe every woman should take care of herself with a yearly mammogram. That is why we have the latest innovation in woman’s healthcare – Senographe® Essential full-field digital mammography system from GE Healthcare.
USC Verdugo Hills Hospital has advanced the fight against breast cancer by installing a new, state-of-the-art digital mammography system for its patients. This system, a GE Healthcare Senographe Essential Digital Mammography system, was selected because of its superior technology.
There are many advantages to a digital system. The images are clear and it offers a better view of the breast, especially near the skin line, chest wall and in women with diverse breast tissue types. The technologist views the digital image within 10 seconds. There is no longer a wait for films to be developed to be sure the images are usable. Digital mammograms take as little as half the time of film.
