Advanced Medical Imaging Improves the Breast Screening Experience
Just in time for Women’s Health Week, May 12–18, Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI; www.AMImaging.com) has finished completion on a six-month redesign of their women’s center. “Mammograms are commonly known as an uncomfortable test, which can deter some women from receiving necessary screening,” said Dr. Erin Bravo, breast imaging radiologist at AMI. The American College of Radiology recommends annual screening mammograms for women 40 and over with an average breast cancer risk. To encourage women to make this yearly appointment, AMI has reimagined the patient experience to make visits seem more like a spa day than a traditional clinic appointment.
Women who visit Advanced Medical Imaging for a breast screening appointment will be now be taken to a private waiting room for patients only. Once changed into a warm rob, they wait in a room filled with calming nature photography, hot tea, infused water, and other refreshments. “In addition to improved ambiance, our technology is continuously improving as research and testing capabilities advance,” added Dr. Bravo. AMI offers more 3D mammography machines than ever before, including machines that offer the newest improvement in comfort, a curved compression paddle. After their appointment, mammography patients are invited to stop by AMI monthly to pick up a free gift as part of their “Mammo Club.” This gift is meant as a reminder to complete self-exams and spread awareness about breast health.
