The device, which was the centerpiece of the event, offers greater visibility for radiologists to view the breast in more detail and provides clearer, more accurate results that often reduce the need for a second test. The program also offered chair massages, refreshments, door prizes and gifts for attendees. The Breast Care Center is located on the first floor of the hospital at 301 W. Homer St. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (219) 877-1980.
