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. J.C. Blair offers upright Stereotactic Breast Biopsy procedures – a less invasive way of taking tissue out of the breast than surgery.
J.C. Blair participates in the Adagio Mammogram Voucher Program for uninsured women who are unable to receive a mammogram and follow-up diagnostic services due to lack of insurance. For more information or to see if you qualify, call 1.888.687.0505.
- 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.
