Mammography

3D screenings offer pinpoint accuracy

If you are a woman over 40, yearly breast health screenings are an important part of a healthy routine and we want to help you maintain the best health possible. With our new Genius 3D Mammography from Hologic, we are offering the most comprehensive and accurate breast health screenings in the region. Mammography is the single most effective method to detect breast changes, long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. Routine mammograms can detect cancer early, providing you with more treatment options and a better chance for a full recovery.And with our new equipment, less false positives are reported and 41 percent more of invasive cancers are detected.
