Bank of Bloomsdale donates to Friends
Bloomsdale Bank recently made a generous donation to the Friends of Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital. The donation will go toward the purchase of 3D mammography for the Bloomsdale Medical Centre. 3D mammography can more
accurately detect cancers than conventional mammograms, and has been shown to reduce the number of false positive results.
Also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, 3D mammography is most useful for women who have dense breast tissue. The hospital expects to purchase the equipment to have in service by October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
