The Importance of Breast Cancer Awareness

Women with personal risk factors for developing breast cancer may consider supplemental screening procedures, such as 3D mammography, in addition to screening mammography. Early detection is key to preventing breast cancer deaths.

What is Mammography?

3D mammography works similarly to conventional mammography, but offers more detailed views and 3-dimensional visual representations of breast tissue.

Benefits of 3D Mammography

Because it offers more detailed views than conventional mammography, 3D mammography is especially useful in women with higher than normal risk for developing breast cancer, such as those with dense breast tissue.

Who is Screening Mammography For?

Breast cancer screening is most effective when mammography is performed once per year beginning at age 40. These guidelines would reduce mortality by 7 percent more than screening every two years beginning at age 50.

Are There Any Risks?

Some women receive incorrect, false-positive results and additional testing is recommended: 10% are recalled for more imaging, 2% are recommended for needle biopsy and 0.5% are diagnosed with cancer.

 

Get Screened

The American College of Radiology and Society of Breast Imaging agree – annual screening mammography should begin at age 40. Request an appointment to get started. A member of our expert staff will respond quickly.
