HealthPlex Imaging Introduces "Bring a Friend Fridays"


(July 3, 2018 - Carroll Township, Pa.)

Mammograms can save lives - often by detecting cancer as early as possible. Some women delay having their annual mammograms for a variety of reasons ranging inconvenience to fear. HealthPlex Imaging knows most people feel more comfortable when they are with their friends and that's why they are offering "Bring a Friend Fridays." Anyone who makes an appointment to have a screening mammogram for a Friday will be asked if they have a friend who would like to schedule with them. In addition, any woman who walks in without an appointment for a mammogram on a Friday is welcome to bring a friend to have her screening too.

"Women share so many things with our friends at our side. At HealthPlex Imaging, we feel that taking the step to better health and wellness should be one of those activities too," said Mary Ann Konsugar, manager of HealthPlex Imaging.

HealthPlex Imaging offers 3-D mammograms that are more effective in detecting invasive cancer at its earliest stages than traditional two-dimensional mammograms. The 3-D mammogram, which is also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, captures a series of consecutive images from different angles across the arc of the breast to produce three-dimensional slice images. The slices enable radiologists to examine breast tissue one layer at a time instead of viewing all of the layers together as a flat image. An abnormality that is hidden behind tissue in one image may be visible in another image at a slightly different angle.

HealthPlex Imaging has hours Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon. Appointments and walk-ins are welcome every day. Most insurance plans are accepted.

HealthPlex imaging is located in the Mon-Vale HealthPlex at 800 Plaza Drive, Suite 150, in Rostraver Township. For more information, call 724-379-1900.
