    Lady of the Sea Adds Powerful New Tool in Fight For Early Detection of Breast Cancer

    This year in America, more than 184,450 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, Lady of the Sea General Hospital advanced the fight against this pervasive disease by installing a new cutting-edge digital mammography system for its patients.
    ?This is new and powerful technology for the detection and fight against breast cancer,? says Tracy Bourgeois, Radiology Manager at Lady of the Sea General Hospital. ?Digital systems such as the new Senographe Essential allow us to offer our patients state-of-the-art mammograms that are clear, precise, fast and easy. Our system provides the largest field of view currently available. And it gives our referring physicians accurate images to use in diagnosis.?
    In Louisiana, breast cancer will affect more than 2,800 this year. Mammograms are among the best early detection methods, yet 13 million U.S. women 40 years of age or older have never had a mammogram, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
    ?This new digital technology will provide both accuracy and increased ease of use for our patients,? says Dr. Sharm El Buras, Radiologist at Lady of the Sea General Hospital. ?Providing outstanding diagnostic equipment for patients is a vital step to good preventive health, and one we take very seriously.?
    There are many advantages to a digital system. The images are clear and easy to read, and it offers an excellent view of the breast, especially near the skin line, chest wall and in women with diverse breast tissue types.
    The digital image is ready to read within 10 seconds ? there is no longer a wait for films to be developed to be sure the images are usable. Digital mammograms take half the time of x-ray film mammograms. And if a second opinion is needed, the image can be sent electronically to a consulting physician virtually instantaneously.
    Why go anywhere else? Trust Lady of the Sea Radiology department and our new digital mammography system for your next mammogram. Our staff is accredited in Mammography by the American College of Radiology (ACR), and provide expert, quality care in a family-type atmosphere when you can feel comfortable and be understood. Appointments are available through your physician, or by calling (985) 632-6401 and asking for Radiology.
