Easing the Anxiety and Pain of Mammograms

Last updated: Oct 30, 2019


FOX5 “Good Day New York” shows how SMG’s mammography suite at 375 Mt. Pleasant Avenue in West Orange is helping to reduce a patient’s anxiety, discomfort and pain during a mammogram by simultaneously stimulating three of a woman’s senses—scent, sight and sound. The Sensory Suite also features the GE Senographe Pristina mammography system with the industry’s first wireless remote control that lets women play an active role in determining their level of breast compression during a mammogram, under the supervision of a technologist. This remote called Pristina Dueta helps to reduce discomfort and addresses one of the main concerns women have for avoiding mammography screening.
