Tradition of Excellence
For more than 120 years Chester County Hospital - now a part of Penn Medicine - has been delivering excellence in Women's Health. Continuing this tradition of excellence, we are excited to announce the recent addition of breast tomosynthesis. This 3-dimensional (3D imaging is less invasive than CT 2D scanning) and provides our on-site Board Certified Penn Medicine Radiologists more accurate views of the breast and allows for a higher degree of accuracy in detection of suspected tumors and masses. This reduces the necessity of return visits for our patients by decreasing the number of false positives by 20-40%, while improving cancer detection rates by 25-40%.
The Women's Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital has pledged $500,000 in support of the funding for this state-of-the-art service. Thanks to this pledge, every woman has access to the highest quality health care at Chester County Hospital and our satellite locations. 3-D mammography services will be available at no additional cost.
