On May 2, 2011 Rotarian Dr. Robert Ellis welcomed guest speakers, Mrs. Sue McLaughlin, Radiology Manager and Dr. Madix, Radiologist from Houlton Regional Hospital. The topic was about Digital Mammography. Houlton Regional Hospital is switching from analog to digital mammography. May is Mammography month and HRH have been raising money to pay for this unit. Digital mammography has 20% reduction in radiation, is faster and more efficient. It is also less time and more accurate and sensitive than analog. One benefit is that with digital, it can be sent to any facility in the world for other doctors to look at. The Health Services Foundation is having a Charity Auction to benefit the Foundation’s Breast Cancer Campaign for the Digital Mammography. This will be held Saturday, May 21, 2011 at York’s of Houlton Showroom. Preview time for the auction is at 6pm with a start time at 7pm.
