South Lincoln Hospital District has converted to digital mammography. The hospital received a grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and upgraded its mammography services. The award was used to purchase a state-of-art digital mammography unit. An upgrade to the radiology workstations, mammography room, and patient changing area was made.

Similar to a digital camera, a 3-D digital mammogram instantly produces a clear image that can then be magnified, enhanced and manipulated, improving the chances of detecting subtle abnormalities. In many cases, digital mammograms can pinpoint more serious cancers earlier, meaning treatment can begin sooner.
