HAGERSTOWN, Md., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ella Health, an innovative women's wellness provider, has opened a center to provide the most advanced breast cancer screening and diagnostic technology to women in the Hagerstown area. The new center offers 3D mammography in a beautiful spa-like setting with friendly, welcoming staff.
3D mammography has been shown to increase the detection of invasive breast cancer by 41 percent while reducing unnecessary call backs for additional testing. The system works by taking multiple images during the exam, which are then compiled into a reconstruction of the breast providing an enhanced view. It will be available for regular breast cancer screening exams and diagnostic imaging. Ella Health mammograms are read by board certified, fellowship trained radiologists who specialize in women's health. Results are delivered quickly, generally within one business day.
In addition to offering the latest technology, Ella Health provides a convenient and comfortable experience. Appointments can be made online and with short notice, sometimes on the same day. The center features a relaxing atmosphere with warm cloth robes, private dressing rooms, soft music and tea and coffee in the waiting room.
"We've designed our center to be a place where women can come and feel pampered," said Ella Health Chief Executive Joe Shikorsky. "Our staff knows how to make women feel comfortable throughout their appointment. It's important to us that women have a good experience so they will want to take this important step in protecting their health."
The new center is in the same building as Capital Women's Care at 1165 Imperial Drive, Hagerstown.
"We are excited that our patients will have easier access to this advanced mammogram," said Mitesh Kothari, M.D., of Capital Women's Care. "This is the most accurate breast cancer screening test available, and it is important that women have as much information as possible about their health so they can make good decisions. This will help us to detect breast cancer when it's most treatable and avoid the anxiety that can come with unnecessary additional testing."
