Hologic has always been at the forefront of breast cancer screening and offers the first and only breast tomosynthesis technology with proven superior clinical performance to 2D mammography.1 The revolutionary Selenia Dimensions 3D™ Mammography™ system, which has set the new standard in mammography screening, provides:
Exceptionally sharp images
Seamless transition between imaging modes
Sophisticated user tools that simplify operation
Advanced clinical applications
The world’s first and only 3D biopsy
Ergonomic design for patient comfort and ease of operation
In addition, the Selenia Dimensions system’s Genius 3D Mammography exam is the only breast tomosynthesis that offers the following advantages over 2D mammography:
A 41% increase in invasive breast cancer detection1
Up to 40% reduction in false positive recalls,1,4 minimizing patient anxiety5 and unnecessary costs5
Digital x-ray emits a lower dose of radiation, while providing higher resolution images, allowing for electronic sharing of images with patients’ physicians in seconds, and is environmentally friendly. No chemicals are used for processing.
Digital mammography is more sensitive and specific for the detection of fine micro-calcifications and subtle soft tissue masses. This method of mammography virtually eliminates film artifacts, this sharply decreasing the need for repeat studies. Digital mammography is vital for detecting early breast cancer. This technique emits a lower dose of radiation and is much more comfortable for the patient as less compression is needed to get the right image. Digital mammography also allows for electronic storage and transmission of images, thus eliminating the need for plain film. New Frontier Imaging is the first facility to offer Digital Mammography Screening in Sweetwater County, Wyoming.
The New Frontier Imaging Center’s EXCITE 1.5T magnet offers the fastest image reconstruction in the industry. Image reconstruction happens the same as image acquisition. The EXCITE 1.5T magnet also offers the widest variety of coils, providing unmatched image quality. New Frontier Imaging is the first facility to offer Breast MRI in Sweetwater County, Wyoming. Patients can even bring their own iPod or CD to listen to during the scan.
The Logic 9 Ultrasound machine provides radiologists with the highest quality images in Sweetwater County. The Logic 9 is multi-faceted; providing examinations for the abdomen, obstetrical, gynecological, breast, small parts, vascular, transcranial, pediatric, musculoskeletal, and urological body parts.

Dexa Scan (Bone Density)
Osteoporosis results in more than 1 million hip, spine, and wrist fractures annually. This disorder affects nearly one-half of all post menopausal women, the largest group at high risk for osteoporosis. Using a bone densitometer, physicians can measure patient bone density and follow it over time. If the patient’s bone density is low, or decreases at an abnormally fast rate, the patient may be at risk for osteoporosis. In just 30 seconds, this highly precise densitometer helps us to identify osteoporosis risk. It can also aid in determining the effects of osteoporosis treatment. There is no special preparation involved for the patient. The exam is very brief and is a comfortable procedure for the patient.
