We are proud to offer every woman a softer mammogram.
Morris County Hospital is certified as a Softer Mammogram Provider®, a distinction awarded only to an elite group of healthcare facilities that offer MammoPad as standard of care. We provide every woman with MammoPad®, a foam pad that serves as a cushion between you and the mammography machine. This comfort technology improves your mammogram experience by decreasing the pain associated with the exam.
The MammoPad breast cushion was designed for women by a female breast surgeon. It is FDA-cleared, does not impair image quality, and makes it easier for you to relax during your exam.† That helps our highly skilled mammography technologists achieve the best possible mammogram.
For more information or to schedule a softer mammogram,
please call 620-767-6811 Ext. 121. Physician Order Required.
Clinical studies prove that MammoPad significantly reduces the discomfort and cold that many women feel during a mammogram. About 70% of women reported it reduced their discomfort by half.
What women have to say about MammoPad
"The pad made a dramatic difference. It made the mammography equipment a lot warmer and softer."
"The MammoPad definitely reduced the amount of discomfort I felt during the mammogram procedure. I want to tell my sisters and others I know who don't get mammograms due to the pain, that there is finally something out there that can help."
"Greatly decreases the discomfort -- use them all the time!"
"The pad REALLY helps! Thanks!"
"Much more comfortable and it also made me feel more comfortable with the 'cleanliness' of the procedure as a new pad was put down just for me!"
THIS PROGRAM IS OFFERED AT NO EXTRA CHARGE TO OUR PATIENTS
