FREEPORT (WIFR) -- Due to popular demand, FHN has expanded the hours for Walk-In Wednesday screening mammograms at the Women’s Diagnostic Center inside FHN Memorial Hospital in Freeport.
Women do not have to be FHN patients to take advantage of Walk-In Wednesdays; simply register at admitting in the east lobby of FHN Memorial Hospital and head to the Imaging Department (right past reception, on the main level) any Wednesday between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.
“Our all-digital mammography equipment creates digital files that are easier to adjust and read, which can result in fewer retests,” said Robin Scalise, director of diagnostic imaging for FHN. “That means fewer callbacks for retesting because of imperfect images and more convenience for our patients. Digital mammography also gives more accurate readings for women under 50, women with dense breast tissue and women who are nearing menopause.”
