YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Joanie Abdu breast cancer center in Youngstown is home to one of only two special breast imaging machines in the state of Ohio.

The new upgrade just went in this past July and it means the center now has the latest technology available in the industry.

As good as it is at detecting trouble, it doesn’t replace the mammogram.

The supervising nurse, Susan Zupco, says this imagining works with a mammogram to look at cells on the molecular level and catch cancer in its earliest stages.
