Magruder Announces Genius 3D Mammography

3D MammographyMagruder Hospital is excited to announce the arrival of Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams, and the Horizon™ bone densitometry system from Hologic for DEXA scans.  For more information about the new technology, contact the Magruder Imaging Department at 419-734-3131 ext. 3435.  For an appointment, call Magruder Central Scheduling at 419-301-4330.  

A Genius exam includes both 2D images and tomosynthesis scans. During the tomosynthesis-DIMENSIONAL portion of the exam, an X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, takingmultiple images. A computer then converts the images into a stack of thin layers, allowing the radiologist to review the breast tissue one layer at a time. A Genius exam requires no additional compression and takes just a few seconds longer than a conventional 2D breast cancer screening exam.

The imaging technology of the Horizon DXA system provides a superb image quality with advanced diagnostic tools to support early detection and treatment of osteoporosis.
