With the support of the Ellen Hermanson Foundation, the Hospital’s Breast Center has added a Hologic Affirm Prone Breast Biopsy System to its diagnostic capabilities.  This state-of-the–art system delivers a faster, more comfortable procedure by providing 360-degree access to the breast, increasing automation, and providing superior imaging.  With high-quality 2D or Tomosynthesis (3D™), imaging and a field of view more than 6.5 times larger than older generations of prone biopsy systems, clinicians can visualize more tissue and pinpoint subtle lesions and faint calcifications that may not be visible on older systems.
