LMH Breast Centers

3D Mammograms, Breast Health Education and More

Starting at age 40, women should have a screening mammogram every year. With the latest 3D mammogram technology available at LMH Breast Centers, you have access to the advanced breast cancer detection tools you need, close to home or work.

Designed with women in mind, our Breast Centers provide a soothing environment that makes your annual mammogram as convenient and comfortable as possible. As your partner for lifelong health, we are proud to support you with the latest 3D technology in the fight against breast cancer.

Early Detection: Your Most Powerful Defense

One in eight women will develop the disease at some point in her life, but when breast cancer is detected early enough, the five-year survival rate is nearly 100 percent. Family history may put some women at higher risk, but 85 percent of breast cancers occur in women with no family history of the disease.

The best way to protect your breast health is through annual mammograms. Using state-of-the-art 3D mammography, we are dedicated to delivering the best in breast cancer screening.

The Benefits of 3D Mammograms

3D mammography enables doctors to examine breast tissue layer by layer, revealing the finest of details with greater clarity. Compared to conventional 2D mammograms, research shows 3D mammography:

  • Detects breast cancers earlier and with greater accuracy1-7
  • Finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers8
  • Reduces unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%2,5

Accredited by the American College of Radiology, we are committed to the early detection of breast cancer, and we adhere to guidelines outlined by the American College of Radiology and the American Cancer Society.

Individual results may vary. The study found an average 41% increase and that 1.2 (95% CI: 0.8-1.6) additional invasive breast cancers per 1000 screening exams were found in women receiving combined 2D FFDM and 3D(TM) mammograms acquired with the Hologic 3D Mammography(TM) System versus women receiving 2D FFDM mammograms only.
