Many women have walked through the doors of the Shimberg Breast Center at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital looking for answers after receiving abnormal findings on their mammogram. Getting that call from a physician can be stressful, often leading to many questions regarding one’s well-being. One important tool to help find those answers is a breast ultrasound machine which creates images without affecting or damaging the tissue and allows clinicians to determine the difference between fluid-filled cysts and solid masses that require further testing.
St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital performs thousands breast ultrasounds each year. Therefore, it is necessary to have the most up-to-date diagnostic tools available allowing St. Joseph’s Hospitals to continue to deliver outstanding care to the community.
Gifts from our community including proceeds from the upcoming Georgette’s Fashion Show will help purchase the newest model of ultrasound, providing greater image detail and resolution. Offering the best available quality imaging improves the service and care we provide women facing a possible cancer diagnosis.
