Lydia Grover, imaging technologist at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center, recently became certified as a mammography technologist.

In September, she attended a mammography training school in Las Vegas. She also traveled to The Health Center for advanced procedural training. After the training, she had to complete a variety of competency exams and pass her board exam.

Grover feels that having this extra training makes her a more well-rounded technologist and that it will help her become a better team player and technologist for Cabinet Peaks.

“As a newly registered mammography technologist, I feel like it is my responsibility to assist in quality care with my patients and to do this in a timely and compassionate manner,” she stated in a press release. “As a proud member of this community, I want to be able to do this to the best of my ability.”

Hannah Huck, Imaging Manager at Cabinet Peaks, noted that the hospital now has four mammographers in the Imaging Department, as compared to 15 years ago when we had one mammographer on staff.

Grover has worked at Cabinet Peaks Medical center in the Imaging Department for two years and has been in her field for five years.

For more information on this certification, or the CPMC Imaging Department, call 283-7080.
