Fairview Park Hospital offers digital mammography.
Your chances of beating breast cancer increase when detected early, and a mammogram is the single most-effective method of early detection. Breast cancer responds well to early treatment; generally, the sooner it is detected, the more successful the treatment. Mammography can detect a breast lump as small as 1/8 inch. Breast imaging can help identify abnormal growths, breast cancer, cysts, lumps, mastitis, etc.
3D Mammography offered starting November 30 at Fairview Park Hospital
Starting November 30, Fairview Park Hospital will offer 3D Mammography as a way to detect breast abnormalities. Three-dimensional (3D) mammography, also known as digital mammography with tomosynthesis, is the latest technology in breast mammography.
Benefits of a 3D mammogram
- Multiple studies have reported that 3D mammography significantly increases breast cancer detection, with a more than 40% increase in the detection of invasive cancers
- Earlier detection of breast cancers
- Clearer lesion image
- Reduction in the number of unnecessary biopsies, minimizing patient anxiety and unnecessary costs
3D mammography is recommended for patients who have the following:
- Previous mammograms with ambiguous or inconclusive results
- Dense breast tissue
- Been previously called back for repeat breast scans
- Undergone biopsies for suspicious masses or lesions in the past
- Breast cancer, or have a family history of cancer
Anyone can request a 3D screening mammogram. Depending on your insurance coverage, additional fees may apply for 3-D mammography. You will be informed about any fees that are the patient's responsibility when checking in for your appointment.
