April 7, 2016 — In late March, White Memorial Medical Center in downtown Los Angeles celebrated the installation of a new Fujifilm Aspire Cristalle mammography system. The system was donated to the 353-bed hospital, a member of the Adventist Health System, by Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

According to the National Cancer Institute, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection and treatment are among the most effective ways to overcome cancer. The latest technology at White Memorial Medical Center will assist radiologists in screening and diagnosis of breast cancer.

“The incredible support we receive from National Breast Cancer Foundation makes a big difference at White Memorial Medical Center,” said John Raffoul, president and CEO, White Memorial Medical Center. “This year alone, thanks to support from NBCF and other generous donors, we will be able to provide more than 2,300 free clinical breast exams/mammograms to underserved women of our community, of whom 45 will unfortunately test positive for cancer. This state-of-the-art equipment from Fujifilm will literally allow us to save the lives of women when we can diagnose them at an early stage of breast cancer. We are blessed to have these incredible partners supporting our hospital.”

Since 2006, Fujifilm has donated $1.6 million to NBCF.  The support has allowed NBCF to provide thousands of mammograms and early detection services to women in all 50 states and helped ensure that those facing breast cancer have access to quality healthcare.
