Digital Mammography uses an updated technology that provides a more comfortable experience for the patient. The improved images produced with digital mammography are enhanced for easier detection of abnormalities, leading to earlier diagnoses.
Any woman who needs breast screening should consider 3D mammography. 3D mammography is an FDA-approved advanced technology that takes multiple images of breast tissue. Traditional mammography obtains just a single image. The multiple images obtained with a 3D mammogram give doctors a clearer image of breast masses. It makes it easier to detect breast cancer early and it helps us see the cancer size much better than we could on a regular mammogram.
Screening and diagnostic mammography as well as 3D mammography are conveniently available at Granville Health System’s Imaging Department. To schedule your mammogram, call (919) 690-3420 or request an appointment using the form below.
