Early Detection is Still the Best Defense
We offer the latest in breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography), which enables us to capture multiple pictures of the breast tissue for more accurate, thorough images. It enables us to better detect breast cancer earlier when it’s at its most treatable stage.
3D mammography is particularly important if you have dense breasts because it enables the radiologist to differentiate better between supportive breast tissue and tumors—which both appear white on a traditional, 2D mammogram.
This is why traditional mammograms result in more callbacks for additional tests, as opposed to the more accurate images produced by 3D mammography.
You can receive a 3D mammogram as part of your regular OB-GYN annual exam in.
Because regular breast cancer screenings are so important, we want to make them as convenient as possible for you.
