The second tomosynthesis mammography unit that is currently being installed at the breast imaging center is a Hologic Selenia Dimensions mammography system. This equipment is the first FDA-approved 3-D mammography machine in the United States. Marketing for this particular machine began in February 2011. The system utilizes 3-D mammography technology, as does the previous unit that was installed at BIC in September 2014. In order to grow our practice and to offer our patients and providers flexibility in scheduling, a second tomosynthesis unit at the breast center was imperative.
At Banner University Medical Center we combine state-of-the-art technology and innovation with the expertise of our breast health, pathology and imaging teams to provide compassionate care for all breast-related conditions.

Researchers at the University of Arizona are developing a noninvasive brain-scanning technology that could produce images far superior to those obtained with the most commonly used systems — electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging. The technique, which incorporates sound waves to measure electrical activity in neural tissue, could improve diagnosis and treatment of many disorders, including epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and traumatic brain injury.
