The VolparaDensity installation in Saint Joseph’s mobile mammography unit and their award-winning Breast Care Center, highlights the growth Volpara Solutions has experienced in 2015. VolparaDensity has been installed on more than 150 digital mammography systems in 2015, surpassing more than 500 systems at customer sites globally.

With installations recently completed at such sites as Shiela R. Veloz Breast Center, Oaklawn Hospital, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Munson Medical Center, Volpara Solutions technology is now in use in 33 countries and more than 7-million women have had their breast density analysed using VolparaDensity.

Located in the heart of downtown Denver, the Saint Joseph Hospital Breast Care Center carries American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation and is also part of the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and a U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Certified Mammography Facility. The Volpara Solutions installation at Saint Joseph Hospital provides the ability to offer objective breast density values and volumetric performance metrics for all 8,000+ mammograms performed annually on two Hologic mammography systems in the Breast Center, as well in the advanced mobile mammography system.

“At Saint Joseph Hospital we pride ourselves on a tradition of providing excellent breast health care to every patient. We’ve made a commitment to include objective, volumetric breast density assessment as our standard of care and make it available to every woman who receives her mammogram from Saint Joseph Hospital, whether it’s in the Breast Center or during one of the preventive screening events performed by our mobile mammography unit,” said Pam Heller, RT, clinical manager at Saint Joseph Hospital’s Breast Care Center. “The addition of VolparaDensity enables us to thoroughly and accurately measure breast density for every woman we serve, improving our ability to detect breast cancer as early as possible.”
