3D Tomosynthesis Mammography
Mammography is an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen
for breast problems. A mammogram is conducted to help screen for or to
diagnose breast cancer. Many small tumors can be seen on a mammogram before
they can be felt by a woman or her health care professional.
Cancer is most easily treated and cured when it is discovered at an early
stage. While mammograms do not prevent breast cancer or reduce a woman’s
risk of developing cancer, regular mammograms can reduce a woman’s
risk of dying from breast cancer by detecting a tumor when it is at a
more treatable stage.
3D Tomosynthesis is the latest in breast imaging technology. By taking
multiple images of breast tissue to recreate a 3D picture, tumors and
cancer clusters can be more readily identified, especially in dense breast
tissue. Funding for our 3D Tomosynthesis machine was generously donated by
Cattlemen's Days Tough Enough to Wear Pink.
We also offer breast ultrasound and breast biopsy for those who need a
more in depth screening or further breast care.
