Women's Imaging Center
Breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography) is the latest advancement in screening and diagnostic services now available at the new Women’s Imaging Center in the Medical Imaging Department at J.C. Blair. New Bone Density and Ultrasound equipment also provide state-of-the-art services for women close to home. Within the next few months we expect to add Stereotactic Breast Biopsy procedures – a less invasive way of taking tissue out of the breast than surgery.
One in every seven women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
When breast cancers are diagnosed at a localized stage, the five-year survival rate is 97%.
3D Mammography makes it possible to identify breast cancer when very small – often a year or two before it is large enough to be felt. 3D Mammography gives a clearer, more detailed image and signifi cantly enhances early detection.
