On February 2, Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Barbara Brodsky Comprehensive Breast Center and Outpatient Radiology Center marked their 10th anniversaries of moving into the newly renovated Founders Building—conveniently consolidating both centers to serve thousands of patients each year with expertise and compassionate care.
“We are proud to mark our 10th anniversary of providing the latest diagnostic imaging services with an emphasis on cancer prevention, early detection and personalized care,” said Brenda DeFeo, VP, administration. “Our patients appreciate the convenience of having this advanced technology right in their community.”
The breast center was the first on the Main Line and the first to use digital mammography, receive National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), to form a newly-diagnosed breast cancer support group and to train breast surgeons throughout the Breast Fellowship Program.
Outpatient radiology provides advanced imaging and diagnostic services with convenient hours. Outpatient radiology was the first on the Main Line to install a 1.5 tesla high-field open bore MRI and one of the firsts to utilize PET/CT to aid in cancer diagnoses. The following are the number of radiology procedures performed at the outpatient centers in the past ten years:
- 186,452 mammograms
- 120,977 MRIs
- 105,710 X-rays
