Call or Walk in for a 3D Screening Mammogram Today

Why are 3D breast cancer screenings so important? Because one in every eight women experiences breast cancer at some point in life. Early detection through annual 3D mammograms helps identify breast cancer sooner, when it is smaller and treatments are typically more successful.

With the latest 3D technology available at our Breast Centers, you have convenient access to the advanced breast cancer detection tools you need, close to home or work.

When breast cancer is detected early enough, the five-year survival rate is nearly 100%.

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

We follow the American College of Radiology guidelines for mammography: Starting at age 40, we encourage all women to have a screening mammogram every year. That’s why we offer state-of-the-art 3D technology, and that’s why we make your mammogram visit quick, comfortable and convenient. Call or walk in for your 3D screening mammogram today, and visit us again every year.
