Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women. That’s why The Woman’s Clinic is proud to be the first private OB/GYN office in the Jackson metro area to offer 3D mammograms to our patients. We provide the latest in screening technology to partner with you against breast cancer.
Not all mammograms are the same.
3D mammography has clinically proven benefits:
Increased Detection: Multiple views, or slices, seen by the radiologist make abnormalities and tumors easier to see. More cancers are found, and found earlier, than with traditional mammography.
Earlier Detection: 3D mammography reduces the number of anxiety-producing false positives, ensuring that you receive the most accurate findings as early as possible.
Dense Tissue View: Women with certain conditions have very dense breast tissue. This dense tissue made finding tumors more difficult on 2D images. The varied angles taken in 3D images allow the radiologist to successfully see layers that might normally be hidden beneath dense breast tissue.
Don’t Put it Off
While breast cancer is not preventable, early detection is a key factor in survival rates. Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms. This is why regular breast cancer screening is so important.
