Elastography medical imaging software acquired by Mammography Institute averts the need for most biopsies


Elastography medical imaging software acquired by Mammography Institute averts the need for most biopsies
The Ministry of Health has determined that all women between the ages of 50-70 must undergo mammography screening every two years in order to detect breast cancer.  Early detection can often save lives.
Laniado Hospital’s Mammography Institute has the best medical equipment available today, including mammography, ultrasound, and Mammotome machines.  In the very near future it will also acquire an MRI device. When one of the examinations reveals a lesion in the breast, it is often necessary to perform a biopsy to determine whether or not the growth is malignant. The biopsy is performed by the insertion of a needle in order to remove and diagnose a sample of the suspicious tissue.  

The hospital has recently acquired the elastography medical imaging software program that improves ultrasound capability by examining the elasticity of lumps detected in the breast and differentiating benign from malignant lesions.

New Thyroid Unit, headed by Dr. Pinchas Klein, to open at Laniado
Unit will serve patients from Haifa to Herzliya

pinchasA new Thyroid Treatment Unit is opening shortly at Laniado Hospital.   The new unit, headed by Dr. Pinchas Klein, will treat all symptoms associated with thyroid malfunction, and will be a center for the treatment of malignancies.  The concentration of all services under one roof will spare patients long run-arounds, standing in line and waiting for test results.  
The unit will work in close cooperation with the pathologist at Laniado, who will be present when biopsies are performed, obviating the need for a repeat biopsy in the case of insufficient extraction of suspicious tissue.
