FHN Offering No-Appointment Screening Mammograms on Wednesdays

11/28/2012

Taking good care of yourself shouldn't have to be a scheduling challenge. Beginning Dec. 12, FHN will offer no-appointment, no-hassle screening mammograms every Wednesday morning.

"Our all-digital mammography equipment creates digital files that are easier to adjust and read, which can result in fewer retests," says Robin Scalise, director of diagnostic imaging for FHN. "That means fewer callbacks for retesting because of imperfect images and more convenience for our patients. Digital mammography also gives more accurate readings for women under 50, women with dense breast tissue and women who are nearing menopause."

You don't have to be an FHN patient to take advantage of no-appointment Wednesdays; simply register at admitting in the east lobby of FHN Memorial Hospital and head to the Imaging Department (right past reception, on the main level) any Wednesday between 7 and 11 a.m.
