Insight Imaging of Grass Valley has received final approval to put its new Tomo Synthesis 3 D Mammography machine to work scanning patients for potential breast cancers. Radiologist Melisa Agnes says she purchased the almost $400,000 state of the art machine to make it possible to more clearly detect cancer cells, even in women with dense breasts and those with an increased risk for breast cancer.
Dr. Agnes says Insight Imaging just received it’s final certification Wednesday morning to begin using the new mammography machine .
