Campbell expansion will bring 3-D mammography

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Campbell County Memorial Hospital will soon be offering a cutting-edge breast imaging technology only recently approved for hospitals.

The Gillette News Record reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/1zzFy9Z) that the technology is called tomosynthesis, and it aims to catch instances of breast cancer earlier and more effectively.

The technology is among several services included in the hospital's ongoing $10.9 million radiology expansion. That project will open to the public early next year and includes suites dedicated exclusively to mammography, along with ultrasound and bone density scans.
