Many diagnostic tools are available to ensure quality of life. For women, screenings for breast cancer become very important. Early detection is helped through regular mammograms.
At OMC, we’re proud to provide a 3D mammography unit to help in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
Research shows that breast cancer will affect one in eight women in their lifetime, and is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women.
The good news is that when detected early, successful treatment of breast cancer is nearly 100%. Our advanced mammography technology captures images in seconds, and uses digital imaging to manipulate images to more clearly show breast density, lesions and other abnormalities.
3D mammography is effective in identifying tumors and abnormalities at an earlier stage, and aggressive tumors in younger women.
3D mammography benefits:
Earlier detection of breast cancer than 2D alone.
One continuous scan of the breast provides multiple images, making abnormalities easier to detect.
Instead of viewing the complexities of breast tissue as a flat image, fine details are more visible layer by layer.
Improved image quality can reduce the need for additional imaging. As a result, patients receive less radiation exposure.
