The Friends of Mercy Medical Center recently donated a $100,000 check to Mercy Medical Center for the hospital’s new Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) technology. Proceeds from all of the Friends of Mercy’s annual fundraising events will go towards Mercy’s MBI technology. Mercy is the first hospital in New York state to feature this ground breaking technology. MBI is revolutionizing women’s imaging through the use of a radioactive tracer and special camera to detect breast cancer despite dense breast tissue, which applies to 50% of women. This is the first innovative technology in breast imaging in years and can help in the fight to reduce breast cancer deaths. Coupled with 3-D tomosynthesis imaging, another leading technology, MBI will allow Mercy the ability to better detect cancer to save lives. Mercy is recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, offering a range of imaging options for breast health.
