New breast imaging department debuts

A new Breast Imaging Department at Beth Israel Medical Center-Kings Highway Division (KHD) opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by elected officials whose efforts helped bring to the Brooklyn community the latest innovation in digital screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound and interventional breast procedures.

“The convenience of this breast imaging facility will encourage more people to come for screening who might otherwise forgo this important component of their healthcare,” said New York State Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein who, along with fellow Assembly members Steven Cymbrowitz, Alan Maisel and Peter Abbate, helped secure partial funding for the community initiative. “The state-of-the-art machines provide better images and a more pleasant experience, hence patients will be more likely to return for regular screening.”
