MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford will host a ribbon-cutting celebration of Tennessee’s first 3D mammogram breast tomosynthesis coach. The 44-foot coach is outfitted with an imaging test that combines multiple X-rays to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast.
Set to serve 26 counties in the Middle Tennessee area, this coach will contribute to early detection and a reduction in late-stage breast cancer and breast cancer mortality by providing crucial access to screening mammography.
This coach is made possible by the donors to the Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation, The Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation, the Christy Houston Foundation, and through the Our Mission in Motion program, an Ascension Saint Thomas initiative to increase access to breast health services to underserved, uninsured, and low-income patients.
The ribbon cutting will be Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021; 6–7 p.m. at Rutherford County Courthouse, S Public Square, Murfreesboro, TN 37130.
