The Latest Technology
Leesburg Regional Medical Center now offers the newest technology available to detect breast cancer with our GE Senographe Pristina three-dimensional tomographic mammogram unit. The 3-D Pristina takes diagnostic imaging to a new level and finds more cancers than 2-D mammography alone.
In tandem with the Pristina, a new SensorySuite creates a spa-like environment for our patients. LRMC is one of only a handful of facilities in Florida to use SensorySuite, in which women as well as men getting tested for breast cancer can control the sights they see on a screen, the sounds they hear, and the aromas they smell. SensorySuite provides a soothing atmosphere rather than a cold, sterile setting.
The physical features of the Pristina have soft, rounded edges to help reduce anxiety, and a handheld remote control which enables patients to set their own compression level. Patients are able to get better compression and comfort level when they set it themselves - and the Pristina unit is still able to produce such high quality images.
