Two new digital mammography machines arrive at Trillium!
Trillium Health Centre Foundation is proud to announce that it has funded the purchase of two new digital mammography machines for the Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre sites of Trillium Health Partners thanks to the generosity of our community donors. The result will be improved access and patient care for women in the community.
Foundation staff, along with the teams at both the Betty Wallace Women’s Health Centre and the Diagnostic Imaging unit, were all on-hand to celebrate in April 2011.
The new equipment showcases the incredible impact that can be made when donors, staff and the community come together and give 110%.
The two next-generation digital mammography machines will result in more accurate scans, shorter wait times and less exposure to radiation for Trillium’s patients. The machines also improve patient comfort, reduce procedure time by about 30 per cent and yield more detailed imaging allowing for better diagnosis.
The new machines will allow our staff to seamlessly track thousands of digital images and create a greater capacity to handle a larger volume of patients in need of high-end, x-ray diagnostics.
The new machines are already having a very positive impact on Trillium’s staff and patients! Thank you to all staff and supporters who made these celebrations possible.
By Giving 110%, we’re taking Trillium’s specialized care to new heights!
