The expanded Center increased the number of infusion chairs from 13 to 20 and added one private treatment room for higher acuity patients.

3D Mammography Now Available
The Carole Pump Women’s Center is proud to announce the arrival of 3D mammography with the Hologic Selenia Dimensions System. The system produces more detailed images of breast tissue than traditional mammography by capturing 3D slices of the breast, all at different angles, in order to detect lumps.
The Hologic Selenia Dimensions system features imaging that is fast and clinically superior compared to 2D. In fact, the exam is performed in a rapid 3.7-second scan time for greater patient comfort and low patient dose, due to the elimination of 2D X-ray exposures.
With this system, Northridge Hospital added the Affirm breast biopsy system, which has a lateral arm upright biopsy accessory that provides even more flexibility to access challenging lesion locations. And, the 3DTM biopsy option allows clinicians to pinpoint subtle lesions and faint calcifications – including those that may only be visible with tomosynthesis.
The new 3D mammography system also features the SmartCurveTM Breast Stabilization, which reduces pain and discomfort during mammograms. The curved design of the compression device mirrors the shape of a women’s breast to reduce pinching and applies uniform compression over the entire breast for added comfort.
