OC Metro

A revolutionary new breast cancer screening technology has arrived at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach. The Hoag Breast Care Center is the first facility in California, and one of only a handful in the country, to offer 3D digital breast tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening.

Hoag currently has one tomosynthesis machine in its Newport Beach hospital, which can scan 50 patients per day, and plans to install another machine of equal capacity in its Irvine location by the end of the year.
