MRHS Mammography Department Received an Evaluation

The Mammography Department at Mena Regional Health System recently received an evaluation from Radiation Control, Arkansas Department of Health. The purpose of the annual inspection is to evaluate activities as they relate to radiation safety and compliance with the Arkansas Board of Health. The evaluation consisted of selective examination of procedures and representative records, and observations of the inspector. Lynn Foster and LeAnn Fryar, mammography technologists, were presented the evaluation following the inspection and no state violations or items of noncompliance were identified. Foster and Fryar are very compassionate about the early detection of breast cancer. Throughout their combined years of mammography experience, they have seen many lives saved by routine mammograms, which detect tumors and abnormal tissue in the breast. Often times, tumors are too small or too deep to be found by breast examination.
