Your good health is our top priority. Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is part of an elite group of facilities across the country raising the standard of care for every patient. We are proud to be recognized as a certified Pink Ribbon Facility.
As a Pink Ribbon Facility we take pride in providing every woman that comes to us for a mammogram with a digital mammography exam. Digital mammography offers a number of practical advantages and patient conveniences.
Because there is no waiting for film to be developed it significantly reduces the need for repeat exams due to under or over exposure. Digital images are easily stored and transferred electronically, eliminating the dependency on one set of original films, which can be misfiled or lost in transit.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her life. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 97%.
