MRHS Purchases New Digital Mammography Equipment


Women who undergo routine mammograms at Mena Regional Health System now have the latest screening and diagnostic technology available to them.  Mena Regional Health System recently installed Fugifilm’s Cristalle Breast Imaging Solution from FUGIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging products.  By offering women the latest technology in mammography, Mena Regional Health System hopes to increase the number of women who will be routinely screened.

“The Radiology Department at Mena Regional Health System is pleased to announce the installation of a new state of the art Fugifilm’s Digital Mammography Unit.  Digital mammography means better accuracy, faster exams, increased comfort and decreased radiation over our previous film-based system.  “We are excited about this step forward for our hospital and patients,” said Dr. Jonathan Welsh, Radiologist at MRHS.

Fugifilm’s new imaging technology and advanced algorithms provide exceptional imaging of all breast types, including dense breasts and implants, helping to reduce the anxiety of repeat exams and higher-dose procedures.  The patented Comfort Paddle is one of the many featured designed to make mammograms more comfortable and easier to endure for patients.

The new Fugi Unit also makes it easier for mammography technologists to perform exams accurately and quickly.  The system combines innovative detector engineering with gentle, even compression, resulting in faster, more confident diagnosis for clinicians and provides exceptional patient comfort.

Consult with your primary care provider or OB/GYN to schedule your digital mammogram.  If you would like to learn more about Fugifilm’s Aspire Cristalle, please visit
