Sutter Medical Foundation Sets Date for Swing Into Golf Tournament

Posted by on Jul 16, 2015 in Sutter Medical Foundation | 0 comments

golfYUBA CITY – Sutter Medical Foundation (SMF) is holding its 17th annual benefit golf tournament, Swing into Health, at Peach Tree Golf and Country Club in Marysville on Friday, Aug. 21. Proceeds will support the purchase of a 3D mammography machine for SMF’s Yuba City imaging office.

3D mammography, also called tomosynthesis, produces 3D high-resolution images of the breast using low-dose x-rays. 3D mammography allows the radiologist to scan through the breast in 1 millimeter increments, enabling the radiologist to differentiate overlapping breast tissue simulating a mass from a true breast cancer.  This increases breast cancer detection and decreases the need for additional images and biopsies allowing for quicker diagnosis and peace of mind for patients.

Sponsorships and player entries are available. The tournament costs $150 per player and includes green fees, lunch and dinner. For more information on the tournament, or sponsorship levels, call 916-887-7070 or buncem@sutterhealth.org.
