PAMPA, Texas — Area residents will have access to the latest in 3D mammography testing beginning Aug. 1 at Pampa Regional Medical Center.

PRMC is advancing the fight against breast cancer with the purchase and installation of MAMMOMAT Revelation, an innovative mammography system designed to overcome barriers to breast cancer detection and compliance.

“ We chose the new system because the wide-angle technology makes it easier to find smaller lesions earlier than with 2D mammography, and with greater accuracy,” said Jon Gill, chief executive officer, PRMC. “We also see personalized compression as a tool that helps women overcome the fear of pain and discomfort that is so common with mammograms by delivering a more comfortable examination.”

The advantage of wide-angle, next-generation 3D mammography

MAMMOMAT Revelation is from Siemens Healthineers. Its industry-leading image acquisition angle of 50 degrees results in the widest depth resolution in the market. The result is clinical detail that helps deliver high-quality 3D images for more information to help doctors make a more confident diagnosis.

Revelation is also the first mammography platform to provide automated breast density measurements at the point of examination. High breast density can increase the risk of developing cancer. Currently, breast density is estimated visually during the image reading process, usually after the patient leaves. With Revelation, getting this information during the exam enables immediate and personalized risk assessment, and allows PRMC to provide supplemental imaging while the patient is in her exam.

The comfort of personalized compression

Compression is key to getting an accurate mammogram. However, the associated discomfort and pain are key reasons why women avoid mammography exams.

“ It was important to us to remove any barrier that could stop a woman from getting the screening she needs,” said Kris Vigil, chief nursing officer, PRMC. “With Revelation’s personalized soft compression, each woman gets exactly the right amount of compression for her breast type. The force is automatically adjusted for the greatest individual comfort without losing any accuracy.”

“ We are thrilled to bring this breakthrough technology to the Texas Panhandle. When breast cancer is found early, the chances of survival are greatly improved,” said Mary Booth, director, Radiology and Respiratory Care, PRMC.”
