Commonwealth Health Center for Women's Imaging in Dunmore
Dunmore, Lackawanna County (WOLF) —
When the Commonwealth Health Center for Women’s Imaging at Advanced Imaging Specialists in Dunmore opens its doors, it will offer a variety of imaging services exclusively for women in a comfortable, compassionate environment with the latest technology in 3-D mammograms.
The National Cancer Institute recommends annual mammograms to detect cancer early when it’s most treatable. They also say 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time during her life. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women.

Dr. Raymond Rubner/Director of Center For Women’s Imaging at AIS: “Mammograms, getting your mammogram is a stressful enough process for a woman once a year. The more you can make that a private and comfortable environment, the more likely women are to want to come back and the better experience that is for someone getting their mammogram.”
Radiologist Dr. Raymond Rubner is a firm believer in getting yearly mammograms after the age of 40, unless there’s breast cancer history in the family.
The center also offers live interpretations of the mammogram so that the doctor can read the image and give the results the same day. Small abnormalities can be biopsied in the center using the 3-D imaging.
Dr. Raymond Rubner/Director of Center For Women’s Imaging at AIS: “We do all that while patients are waiting here so they leave knowing that everything is okay and that gives them peace of mind.”
There’s a grand opening celebration at that New Commonwealth Health Center for Women’s Imaging at AIS in Dunmore tomorrow from 1pm to 3pm.
Also in Kingston, tomorrow, the Commonwealth Health Women’s Imaging Center at the Thomas P. Saxton Medical Pavilion is having an open house from 3pm – 5pm, where you can learn more about the women’s services offered there.
