St. John’s Health Foundation is pleased to announce the purchase of 3D mammography equipment. Thanks to the philanthropic support of St. John’s Auxiliary, Teton Pines Women’s Golf Association, and private donors, this state-of-the-art equipment will be available to our community starting this summer.
3D mammography allows doctors to examine breast tissue one layer at a time by using high-powered computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of very thin “slices.”
With upgraded equipment, SJH will provide cutting-edge medical care to the women in Teton County—and the entire catchment area for St. John’s Health—as part of its commitment to patient-centered clinical excellence and community wellness. Specifically, digital breast tomosynthesis equipment will improve the quality of the experience for women seeking mammograms at SJH.
